It’s a terrible thing, I think, in life to wait until you’re ready. I have this feeling now that no one is ever ready to do anything. There is almost no such thing as ready. There is only now. You may as well do it now. Generally speaking, now is as good a time as any.

    Welcome to Sparks Ame,

    I was just as impressed with what I saw the day I joined. You have come to a place where it all is possible.
    The baby steps are what get us there. Hope you enjoy our group. I have met so many wonderful people since being here. I continue daily to be impressed with them and SP in general. I know it has made such a difference in my life and I'm sure it can for you too! Good luck with your journey.
