Being Touched by the SPARKLIGHT

Tuesday, June 28, 2011

Could I asked to be touched by so many today and what a wonderful time to celebrate the day in the SPARKLIGHT. Spark embraces each and every one of us in so many ways and I truly believe it gives life to ever so many. Spark is addictive and what an addiction to have.

"We are, each of us, angels with only one wing, and we can only fly embracing each other." ~ Luciano Deciescenzo

Take this quote and copy and paste it into your memory bank - it is the community of people who will contribute to everyone and anyone reaching whatever goals they chose to achieve. It is my belief that we always need each other in life to accomplish and to survive. This year has been a year for me that has held much pain and severe life change - I struggle yes, like we have to do, but it is always the comfort and communion of people who will help us get through whatever life can put on our plates.

Embrace the touch of others and let them have their place in your lives and your journey's. But when it comes to your goals - make them your own. Define them for you, design them for you -- this community is to be here to rally for you as you walk the path that you have carely planned for YOURSELF. You must then stay away from trying to do or to be something other than yourself. It is hard for so many who get wrapped up trying to do things that are just not for them or trying to have goals that are someone else's. Always place your most importance on YOU, and you alone.

We are our owns "works in progress" and it has to be all about what do you want your body and your life to be about - RE-WRITE if you are not on the path that you really should or want to be on. Life is not just about ONE STORY - it is about many re-writes because our lives, our goals and our visions are constantly changing. This is what makes life worth living and it makes it fun to re-write it when your journey decides to change.

I am re-writing my journey once again and I know I will be re-writing forever. I am changing and so are my goals. I have met all that I have chosen to do, and I have met it all because I was COMMITTED TO DO SO. Now I am re-writing but I am also re-defining and re-designing what I am going to do next. Sometimes I don't know what is next, sometimes I have the controls and sometimes I do not, but I keep on going.

I have decided to restructure my body also in this new life transition that I am walking in. I have decided to go for a bit of a different look and am working that as a goal this year. I have competed, I have been ultra lean - where to go now? Now I am just ready to be WOMAN. I have decided I want alittle less leanness and less work on muscle growth. Now I look for balance. I went golfing today for the first time in 20+ years and my upper body muscle was actually a negative as my instructor put it. I laugh at that because even though I have a solid amount of muscle I would not have expected it to be problematic - well it is and I will work my way around that. It is all about re-designing and re-defining.

Everyone needs to know that it is okay to do these things - there is no right or wrong when it comes to what you want f or you - because it truly is all about you and your own personal goals, dreams and visions. Just remember the concept of Community in your travels - the people of spark are what make our travels so much more meaningful.

"Sometimes when we are generous in small, barely detectable ways it can change someone else's life forever." ~Margaret Cho

    Thank you Karen!

    This is a very special place, as you said we are setting goals and re-constructing our own paths....

    This place "fans" the Spark we all own, and when that Spark becomes a Flame we are unstoppable!

    BTW....I was just offered a job in the medical field!!

    My life will never be the same, and isn't that what life is all about!

    Chapter after chapter of an unfortold story....

    We own our futures...
