First of all, I just want to thank you all who have been leaving me kind comments and words of encouragement on my page, my blogs and my pictures. I can't even begin to tell you how much I appreciate it and how it makes me feel to know someone out there is reading my words and feeling inspired because of them.
I never expected to inspire others but it feels wonderful to be able to offer something back to this amazing community that has given me so much! Over the years, I have read through so many inspirational blogs and met so many wonderful people here on SparkPeople. It's nice to know someone might be reading through my page or my blogs and finding the same kind of inspiration that I have found on countless SparkPages here.
When I wrote my blog about finding balance, I just wrote it for myself. Never in a million years did I expect to get over 300 comments on it! So many of you related to what I wrote and I was beyond surprised! It's wonderful to know I'm not alone in this quest for balance and that others are dealing with some of the same issues as I am.
Today, I got an email saying I have gotten enough votes to become a SparkPeople Motivator. I'm so honored that you have voted me and that you find my story to be an inspiration for others. It actually motivates and inspires me to work even harder and to stay positive along this journey.
Thank you! I hope you all have a lovely weekend. Be happy and love yourself because you are unique, wonderful and beautiful just the way you are!
