It’s Monday – SPARK DAY!!! You know what Monday means…………SPARKS. Time for an inspirational thought – a little something to get us through another week. Everyone is invited to participate by posting their OWN thoughts on their blogs – SPARKS inspire all of us! “SPARKS” was started by Annie McGuffy of McGuffy’s Reader but ended when her blog was hacked some time ago. It was meant to be a way to start out each week with with a meaningful thought – something that spoke to each of us and hopefully everyone else who read it. Sometimes we need a little “spark” in our lives and these posts were meant to at least be a PART of that effort. Please feel free to post a SPARK of your own on your blog and let everyone know you have…….we get energy from each other that way!
I found a great quote……………..it’s not the best graphic in the universe because it’s not CLEAR and it’s all gray………a bit depressing but the MESSAGE is what counts right?
Guilty as charged……………for a long time I did have a picture in my head that was how things were supposed to be………..and it even changed a little through twenty or so years but then I finally let it go. I’ve been a whole lot happier since then. I will admit that that “first picture” in my head was one that my childhood produced and one that was encouraged by my parents. I loved fairytales and believed that a white knight would ride up and capture me and carry me off into the sunset and a beautiful life. But fairytales ARE fairytales. My “life picture” changed over time and when I finally realized that I shouldn’t even HAVE a picture in my head but just do the right thing in any given moment and “expect the unexpected” in life, I truly felt better AND lived better. So there. True confession.
