Hidden Clues

Wednesday, February 06, 2013

Funny thing about blogs. I sometimes find that what I don't put in them, is just as revealing and illuminating as what is written. I recently wrote a love letter to myself. I wrote it spontaneously and from the heart with no pre-meditation of the topic. Lo and behold, when I reread it I was kind of amazed that I did not include my health accomplishments this year. The fact that I lost over 40 pounds and continue to exercise 5 or more times a week. All my love went to my personality and character - the inner me not the outer one. It kind of reveals what is important to me. Yes, I want to be healthy and look good - don't we all. However, what I value in myself is how I walk through the world. That I do it with dignity, grace and kindness and that is never dependent on a number on a scale. Somethings like weight and our God given appearance isn't always in our control but how I conduct myself during my stay on this planet is what counts. Just thought I would share the inspiration that came from what I didn't put in my love letter.

    I think very much the same way. It is far more important to me the footprint I leave in the world rather than how deep that footprint is. I loved your love letter to yourself, I'm so glad you recognize the beauty that is Wendy.

    Yes, just after I wrote it, it struck me as different from some of the other love letters I saw. Then I figured out why.

    Wow! Did you come to this revelation on your own? I never noticed this at all until you pointed it out! That's all the more reason to be proud of yourself! Very cool!
