Friends make life enjoyable. I am blessed to have so many people who care about me and about my well being. Today, I got to see several people for whom I care a lot about – people that I haven’t seen for several months. And they were all so encouraging to me! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
Today I learned that there are quite a few people following my journey through this blog. How awesome is that! I am hopeful that the steps I take can bless each and every one of you in some small way.
As someone who has, for most of her life, wanted to write, it is a RUSH for people to say that they are reading my stuff. SWEET!!
It was also nice for those same people to notice that I have changed – that I am getting smaller. Yes, I know I still have a long way to go, but I’m going to enjoy the successes I am having along the way. Thank you ALL for the encouragement.
People are often hesitant to tell someone that they look good because they have lost weight. I can see how the wrong words could hurt someone’s feelings. But good grief, there’s so much negative in the world, let’s just give out compliments when we can. And when you’re given a compliment, accept it. It feels good. Enjoy it – especially if it is from losing weight. I promise you that you deserve it.
Anyway, I just wanted to take a moment to say thanks to all the people who have, and continue to, encourage me along my journey.
And while I’m at it, this blog is interactive. Feel free to make a comment, share a thought, or ask a question. You never know who you might encourage as you walk along your own path. We can walk, and grow, together.
Life’s too short not to enjoy your journey.
