Today are you helping pull someone along or being pull?

I see our SP experience as a group of ladies going together up a steep mountain path. All trying to get to the top. The top of the mountain is that place where we set our goals to be and maintain those healthy lifestyle changes. On one day one person needs to be encouraged to keep on so she listens to another's story of how she got that far on the path. Then when she is feeling strong and she advances she shares her story with the person feeling weak that day to encourage her. There really is strength in numbers. What is so wonderful about this is both the one needing encouragement and the one receiving encouragement are helped by the sharing of the story. Each person's story has value and can help others. I love the fact that by helping others you yourself get helped...how cool! Oh how special our SP members are to each other. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Great blog entry! It is so true and one of the biggest reasons I love SP so much. The same is true of my daily reminder to smile, even of you don't feel up to it. Smiling makes others feel good and soon you'll forget you don't feel liker and feel better yourself. Soon your smile will be automatic rather than thinking about it.
