SPARK on Monday and Reminder


What exactly IS this Monday SPARK thing we do?   Well, most of you know that Annie of McGuffy’s Reader – who started SPARKS – was hacked and has been on an extended break from blogging although her idea to spread some inspiration on Monday of every week goes on.   Many of us who participated in her SPARKS Blog Hop and found value in sharing a thought on Monday continue doing that to hopefully give each other a “Monday boost” – perhaps something to think about to inspire us in the week ahead OR help us deal with something that’s on our mind.    Why not join us by sharing something that SPARKS you?   It might just start a spark in us too.

Was kind of thinking about depression since I know a lot of people who are dealing with depression in their lives and I do try to help them get through that – it’s kind of “what I do” – I listen and advise if asked but listening is the most important part.    Anyway, I saw this quote and it kind of hit me just right…………….


It can fit a lot of situations I suppose but ties into being depressed quite well too.    I have to say that in my long life I have had times of depression but I never “stayed there” long.   I guess maybe part of that was because I knew that I needed to walk away.

Hope you all have a super Monday!

Hugs, Pam

P.S.   Teddy the Professor asked me to remind all his students that there is CLASS TOMORROW – at a surprise time so keep an eye on your inbox – and when you arrive in class at Ding Dong School remember to COMMENT RIGHT AWAY – you  might win a badge!   WOO HOO!   (that’s what he said anyway – I’m just his mouthpiece you know!).

    • We just have to have faith in ourselves I think that we do what’s best…! So happy your Security Team will be on watch tomorrow – these days we all need a little “extra security” !!

  1. It is indeed one of the hardest things when we are determining which to do, stay or walk away. You sometimes realize that it doesn’t seem to be you who is the one needed. I have found it needs that realization, plus knowing that the right person will find a way into the situation and provide what’s needed when you aren’t the one.


  2. A good quote. I have had to make that choice frequently lately in relationships in the last years and also about decisions not necessarily related to depression. It’s a difficult decision to make. Sometimes you just have to walk away to stay healthy yourself.


  3. That kind of thing is always on my mind, esp at my work…but its like a catch 22, sometimes neither option is the best. I try to find someone to share the issue with, since two heads are better than one!

    This thought is not only good for depressive situations, but also for frustrating or anger producing ones.


  4. Sometimes walking away is all we can do…but that often seems as if we have failed at something, which we never want to do. We’ll be up early tomorrow, as the electric company has told us our electricity will be off from 8 to 5. Hopefully it will be early enough to be a firstie on the Teaser.

  5. Mom says that is the right thing to do to try harder if at first things don’t go well, but at some point it is best to walk away. But many times it is a very hard choice to make.

  6. Now this is a ‘purrfect’ SPARK Pam!!! My Depression has been overwhelming of late. And I found myself in a personal situation where a trusted friend betrayed me to an Ex of mine. I have tried to understand why she betrayed me; tried to understand why he did not speak to me to confirm what she told him….I have walked away from both people. Walking away is the sanest option!
    Thank you for your SPARKS; they really help me alot!

  7. YES!!! And according to last week’s advice, we should make a decision without worrying about the future! 🙂 BTW, I think I more often choose the “try harder” thing, although there were important decisions in my life which were based on the “walk away” technique 🙂


I wanna know what YOU've got to say!!
