How about motivating myself!?

Tuesday, January 21, 2014

Ok, so I post a silly "about me" to throw myself out there in a unique way and I have replys shortly after. (I forgot how nice it is to hear from a stranger...and my long lost spark buddies) I've created a distance with my spark friends for quite some time. I pop in and out. I normally have had a couple days with great tracking and then I lose touch with the site. I often use the app to track and I don't socially entwine myself with spark friends, etc. I'm sure many of you have played this game.

I routinely check my email and today I see a couple comments, a post to a couple motivational/humorous pics, and a couple messages...my push for the day, a prayer from a stranger, and complete understanding of those who share this struggle. Suddenly I'm confused...
"SparkPeople Motivator"!? Who? Who me? What the heck for!? I'm so anti motivated right now! Then I'm like...it says "motivator"...not "motivated". And I think...oh! Yes!! That's about right...I'm great at motivating! Just not utilizing the techniques to motivate myself right now. I'm just at a low...and even with all the highs, there tends to be a low. Ok, so I'm not motivated. Others may not experience MY drastic low...although some may. It's definitely been about learning along the way and finding myself.

What's motivating about me? Perhaps because...

I know I can do it! I've done it...in a healthy manner!
Shared many stories and helpful hints on healthy choices.
The phrase "If I can, anyone can!" Soooo...applies.
There is no size in mind, it's feeling good...and living!
I only view my gain/regain as a learning experience.
I always find my way to sparkpeople!!!!! 😊❤️

Feel free to share your opinion! I truly don't know why I was chosen. I just know that it was motivating to receive such news! It was motivating to hear from friends and strangers. It brought a smile to my day!

Thank you!!
