From the heart.

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

A number of my Spark friends have been experiencing some lows quite recently.
It is so hard to see people struggle, no matter who they are or how well you know them.
I've said it before, but this is most definitely a journey that each and every one of us must make on our own.
However, on our journey, we will find ourselves on a path that is filled with many other people. Some of these people are a lot like us, others are very different.
It is comforting to walk that path with someone else, maybe for a day or maybe much longer.
I, for one, am very much a loner on my journey. I have always taken responsibility for my success and my failure. That is me and I am ok with that.
At the same time, I seek out others that seem to be struggling. It some how helps me, to help them.
Some days I am a cheerleader. Other days I am all about tough love.
But just know, I will ALWAYS be walking that path and will never be far away.
Your journey is just as important as mine.
I hope you know just how grateful I am for each of you.
I want you to repeat this to yourself as often as you need to and I promise I will do the same.

    That is so true for you! I'm the same way. I have tried to follow others but usually just end up doing my own thing because they don't want to do as much as I do. My sister started me on this journey on Spark People and she did very well for a while but slipped a little. With our walking training, I'm making sure I do EVERY mile on the books and she has skipped a few but I have more time than she does since she's going to school to be a Nurse Practitioner. Anyway, I love helping people and encouraging everyone no matter what. You do a GREAT job! :) Rock on!

    Thank you for being such a great cheerleader to all of us! But you know, whenever you should need us, we'll come running.
