SPARK  ~  Thought of the Day:
Quote of the Day:  Even though you may want to move forward in your life, you may have one foot on the brakes. In order to be free, we must learn how to let go. … Refuse to entertain your old pain. The energy it takes to hang onto the past is holding you back from a new life.
 ~ Mary Manin Morrissey

Journal:  If your spouse or closest friend was asked “What does (insert your name here) consistently complain about” – what would they answer?  How about if they were asked “What is (insert name) moving towards/ actively making happen in their life” ?  Answer both of these in your journal.   [Click here for additional Journal exercises]

Journaling is an effective way for us to chronicle this fantastic and remarkable ‘journey’ called life.  List in your journal today three events you’ve experience over the last month that you had absolutely no hand in coordinating. Good, bad, or otherwise- how did you respond?  [Click here for additional Journal exercises]
