Hey … How are things?

Do You go through the day with plenty of pep, motivation & excitement?

I’m sure that you don’t like to get older [even if you won’t admit it] however one thing that I believe that you must maintain is  your spark.

Your spark is your motivational ignition switch. And it can be turned on at any age.

Even when your battery feels a little flat, your spark will kick in and get you through the day.11 ways to know your life is full of Spark Blog post

Here are 11 indicators that your spark is still alive:

You can’t wait to jump out of bed in the morning and live through the day

You face problems with gusto, not that you like them, but you crave clear air

You continue to love what you do … and prioritise doing what You love

Your imagination is your most valued and used tool

You inspire yourself

You make the time to listen and understand so that you can make the best choice

You exercise your mind as well as your body, daily

*Love is always on your ‘Must do’ list

Self expression is your way of life

You enjoy saying “Yes” to opportunity and “No” to time wasters

You feel 35 when you are actually 55 [any 20 year gap will do]

Do any of these resonate with You?

Have You still got the spark?

What are other ways that tell you that your ‘spark’ is still alive?

    I know my spark is still aflame when… I feel a sense of excitement and curiosity at all there is to learn and engage in out there.
    Love this concept of a spark and how we can continue to ignite it.

      Hi Harriet,
      Excitement & Curiosity are certainly up there, they always spark me and keep me motivated & inspired.
      Thank You for your support.

    Hi David and thanks for an enjoyable post 🙂

    With the exception of daily exercise, I do indeed still have a spark and will continue to do so until my batteries finally drain out!

    One thing that has kept my spark from diminishing is that about twenty years ago I adopted a simple living lifestyle. I work from home as a music teacher, I live a modest, yet fulfilling existence and I have removed all the stress from my life. That is what gets me out of bed in the morning with a smile! Mind you, I still need to work on the exercise 🙂

    Take care David and thanks for your thoughtful engaging. All the best.

      Hello Lyle,
      Thank You for your thoughtful comment. You are passionate about your music teaching and that counts for a lot. Keeping things simple goes a long way as well. Stay on the path and keep your spark alive.
