During this weekend, I noticed that a friend made a remark about my body and it really hurt me; I have moved past it as I know that I am making progress and taking strides to become thinner and more importantly; healthier!
Saturday, I was fortunate enough to attend a live taping of Kathy Griffin. She is amazing and made me laugh so hard. It took my mind off of being hurt and sad. I have learned that surrounding myself with uplifting, positive people help me on this journey. In addition, it inspires me to relax and enjoy; suck up the moments of life that should be recognized. I had a blast on Saturday and I cannot wait for more moments such as these. Thank you Kathy for a wonderful experience. And thank you Mandy; for being there and sharing the moment with me! I had a great time with you!
To all Sparkers reading this; don't let anyone bring you down or try to. We all have personal struggles and I think as friends, and decent human beings we should encourage and uplift! Not discourage and hurt. I believe that words are pretty powerful; so they should be chosen carefully. In addition, lead by inspiring actions...putting your best foot forward makes others want to step in the same direction.
Enjoy your Sunday!
