Having an impact!

Thursday, January 07, 2010

Yesterday, one of my fellow sparks, cgem61 (Carol) left THE NICEST comments on my page. It almost brought me to tears because this is what spreading the spark is all about!!! I am humbled that I have the opportunity to share my success with other people on a similar journey and encourage them, motivate them and hopefully inspire them to make lasting lifestyle changes.

This is what Carol wrote:

"You have no idea how you have helped me stop being a slug. How you picked me up that day when I told you how a family member took me down when I was so excited about doing the Iron Girl. Do you remember? If it were not for you, well, I would have stayed down and that would have been the end of my journey Because of you challenging me to do more on SparkPeople, because of you encouraging me, I am still here and I know how much happier I am doing this!
Your not only touching my life but also Celeste's and that means the world to me and the countless other people I talk to about the Spark, your touching them too, because you encouraged me It would mean so much to me to have your autograph, would you please do me the honor? "

Carol, thank you for making my day! I hope that I get the opportunity to see you and Celeste at our future Spark San Diego outings. It is people like you that make my work with the team worthwhile!!

Keep on sparkin!

    There is NOTHING like the feeling one gets from making a difference to someone else...what a WIN-WIN situation, eh?

    I've been sharing with others from the San Diego convention how MUCH I appreciate being a part of such a *formative* group! It's been so great to keep up with all of you who spoke and KSIGMA1222 who later spoke in Cincinnati. Thx for being there and keeping the SPARK! :-)
