Donít look behind you to make sure Iím not talking to anyone else. Quit playing the game that starts with ďHa-ha, if he only knew the REAL meÖÖÖ..Ē Just stop it!!! You are appreciated for who you are, right now. That may be at your goal weight, half way to your goal weight or nowhere near your goal weight. You may have eaten a healthy breakfast of fruit and fiber or you may have scarfed down a fried donut slathered in cream cheese icing. Just as you are, at this very moment in time Ė quick run and mark the date and time on a calendar or take your lip gloss and fashion it boldly on a mirror of choice. Ė You are greatly appreciated and deeply loved simply because you were created and because you choose to share your compassion, your love and your overall beauty with me.
ďI donít feel special John.Ē Well, uhm, thatís coz youíre not special. There is absolutely nothing unique about being lovable, valuable and cherished just as you are. There are no special people. There is only the shining light thatís you. We are all that way, really. Sometimes it takes a while to notice.
I do not know you in the sense that we share coffee or tea. We probably wonít ever get together for lunch or dinner. I guess there wonít be cards in the mail to celebrate special occasions. I doubt we shall ever talk on the phone. No matter. One look into the smile on your face and the openness of your heart when I look at your Spark Page tells me everything I need to know. I feel your warmth, your kindness and mostly your understanding. In one form or another, we have all been at the same place at one time or another and shhhhhhhhhhh we all been scared, worried or anxious. No matter. You are appreciated, for what you bring here each day. Your success inspires me, your struggles motivate to believe in myself and shoot if you can do it, so can I. Itís the old arm-in-arm thingy.
No matter how badly you blow it on a given day or week, no matter how many times you come very close to giving up, you are appreciated for making my life so much better. Itís helped me realize that I am appreciated too. You are among the greatest and most wonderful person on this earth. No hurry up and write it down somewhereÖÖÖÖ.. Before you forget.
