Merry Christmas to all of my Spark friends ! Have you found the peace and joy we all hope for at this time of year ? I am making every effort to end this year on a peaceful and positive note.
Since joining in June I had hoped to lose 20 pounds by the holiday and managed to lose 12. I am congratulating myself... 12 is more than half ! This is one of the lessons I am learning. More than half is really good. I am not carrying the former 12 around and I am moving in the direction of completing my goal.
Christmas isn't always as merry, or as 'white' as the advertisements and cards can make it out to be. There are no 'shoulds' and how you celebrate or not, is perfect for you. Do what you can for yourself and others and call it GREAT ! Pass your smile on to everyone. Be kind while waiting in line. Now is a great time to make the world a better place.
Stick to your Spark goals. This is the perfect season to celebrate the new you. Be loving and strong . Be joyful. I love the quote from Abraham Lincoln.." Most folks are just about as happy as they choose to be." Choose cheer and fellowship.... Merry Christmas to all....
