    SPARK Notes for November 18th

    with Blaire Harter

    "Gratitude is a powerful catalyst for happiness.  It's the spark that lights a fire of joy in your soul." - Amy Collette


    There are a number of benefits to practicing gratitude.  People who practice being thankful for what they currently have often experience more positive emotions, express more kindness and compassion, and sleep better.  Who doesn't want better sleep?

    Starting a gratitude practice is simple.  It can be as easy as writing down things you are grateful for upon waking or before going to sleep.

    Be sure to write down new things you are thankful for which will support you in becoming better equipped to change a negative perspective into a positive one.


    What is one thing you are grateful for today?

    "Believe in your dreams, no matter how impossible they seem." - Walt Disney

    What dreams do you have for yourself?

    We all have a goal we would like to work toward, but the feeling of fear and uncertainty may stop you from beginning to chase that dream.  Yes, following your dreams can be hard.  It can be filled with ups and downs, but your dreams matter!

    You can do anything you want to do, you just have to believe!  Take that first step today!  Write your dreams down.  Share them with a friend or family member.  Pick a date on a calendar to give yourself a time frame to work towards.  No matter what obstacles you may face, don't let anything get in your way.


    How are you going to start chasing your dream?

    "You have power over your mind  not outside events.  Realize this, and you will find strength."  - Marcus Aurelius

    The old adage is TRUE:  What the mind believes, the body achieves.

    The hardest part?  Your body can hear even the quietest of doubts circling around in your brain!  They are so deeply intertwined & connected.

    The trick?  Keep training your MIND, along with your body.

    What can you do today to focus on working hard to silence the negative thoughts and kill the doubts that stop you from reaching your goals?

    SPARK Notes for October 28th

    "Constant kindness can accomplish much.  As the sun makes ice melt, kindness causes misunderstanding, mistrust, and hostility to evaporate." -Albert Schweitzer.


    Being kind to one another is one the simplest acts you can share with another person.

    It can be done as you hold the door open for the person behind you, as you share a smile with a stranger on the street, when you give a compliment to a coworker, or offer to pick up an object that a child drops.

    1 in 5 adults will experience mental illness this year. People are struggling everyday: financially, physically, or emotionally. Even though it may not be visible, it doesn't mean there isn't an internal battle occurring.

    Sharing positivity and kindness helps to limit the stigma associated with mental illness as it allows everyone to feel less shame or about what they are experiencing.


    What can you do to bring more kindness into your words and actions this week?

    You have unlimited power. #beYOUtiful

    As we continue to celebrate our #beYOUtiful campaign, we're doing our best to spread the word that you...yes, YOU...are a powerful being. We live in a world that wants us to feel less than our best, to conform to a certain ideal, to believe that we are not powerful—but this campaign, it fights that norm and believes in every single one of you. You are #beYOUtiful. And you are powerful. Today, another repost story from Blaire, one of our great Ambassadors:

    I am.

    Those two words hold an incredible amount of importance.  The sentence you formulate after those two simple words can have a huge impact on your mindset.  They can even change your mindset, allowing you a chance to rewrite how you think, believe, and feel.

    At the beginning of July, I made plans to run my first full marathon, which would take place in the beginning of November.  I began training in the hottest months of summer in Florida and it quickly began to take its toll.  Add in the beginning of school in August for our two boys, one starting pre-kindergarten and one starting 3rd grade, and I saw the training take a hit.

    Our oldest son struggles in school.  Maybe there are families out there who can relate to that.  The transition from school to home is a challenge.  The long hours in the afternoon that are required to complete homework for a variety of subject areas can quickly end in frustration and tears.

    When those moments were happening more frequently, I chose to prioritize time with my family over miles on the road.  With that decision came the choice to drop from running my first marathon to aiming for a personal best at the half marathon distance.

    It would have been easy to focus on the negative feelings of guilt, disappointment or inadequacy.  The feeling that I am not doing enough, that I should try harder, or that I am making excuses. Instead, I chose to change my mindset.

     

    To replace the negative words with positive, empowering words.  I am making the right choice for my mind and body.  I am going to focus on getting faster to reach a goal for the half marathon distance.  I am having fun and remembering why I love running in the first place.  I am powerful.

    With the weight of the marathon distance training off my shoulders, it gave me more freedom to truly focus on my son, on supporting him academically, on advocating for him and what he needs to be successful and feel good about himself.

    I even registered for and am in the process of completing advocacy classes so that I can become an educational advocate to better help my son and other families navigate the public school system and provide their children with the most appropriate learning environment and accommodations to fit their individual needs.

    Whatever you set your mind to, you can achieve.  You have unlimited power, creativity, strength, and courage.  You get to choose what to believe.

    And we here at Momentum truly believe that you are capable of almost anything you want to achieve. We realize that life is special, and so are you. All of the moments are worth your time and attention, not just the big ones. And in remembering this, in choosing what's right for you, you're deciding that you are worth it. That you are #beYOUtiful, powerful, fearless and, really...just about anything you want to be.
