SPARK on Monday


Happy Monday.    You know what Monday means – SPARKS!  “SPARKS” was started by Annie McGuffy of McGuffy’s Reader but ended when she stopped blogging 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. Although Annie isn’t currently blogging, a lot of us who enjoyed her SPARKS decided to keep posting SPARKS of our own.

My SPARK today is about letting go……of a person, a bad experience, even some GOOD experiences – things that become like a weight you’re dragging around – maybe you’ve done something for YEARS but it no longer brings you joy.    Shouldn’t we let those things go?    Don’t they just keep us from moving forward sometimes?   Well I don’t pretend to be a wise sage but I do think that I have learned to move on when I need to.    Took me a lot of years to get to that place but I’m there.      Finally.

I like this – it says what I as trying to say above only BETTER.


Hugs, Pam

  1. Very true!
    Hubby learned that when he retired, even though he had kept on working well into the so called ‘senior’ years…
    And I did that learning thing too…years ago when after about three years I dumped a boyfriend…we were just pretending somehow. At least that is what I felt, so I didn’t want to hold him (hostage in a way) any longer.
    And so now I live in the USA, have two good sons, a hubby and things I never dreamed of back then.

  2. Does your mama and mama often wake up thinking the same thoughts? Wow, this spark fits right in with what mama just told me she was feeling…funny how this happens often!


  3. It’s weird, I was thinking along these lines this morning! And I see I’m not the first to say that today. We’re all in tune.


  4. I agree that this is a very important message. Looks like we are all sisters in thought! All five of the first commenters. You, the five first commenters here, and me. The hardest thing to do. Habit and mindset are like “Gorilla Glue” and uncomfortable to have pressing on our minds but even harder to close that door spoken of here. We need to become aware of this and change it. Difficult but necessary.


  5. BellaSita here Pam! I’ve always respected Ann Landers! This is one of my favorite quotes of hers!! 150% true quote.
    Thank you for this SPARK. I’ve been practicing her words this year & have cleared out alot of ‘dead wood’ so to speak 😉
    Have a great week!

  6. Great Spark, but it speaks to me in two different ways. I have no choice than to keep hanging in there, and believe me I have no intention of giving up!


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