Day 602- Delicious Ambiguity


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Thursday, July 25, 2013

My title came from this quote:

Some stories don’t have a clear beginning, middle and end. Life is about not knowing, having to change, taking the moment and making the best of it, without knowing what’s going to happen next. Delicious ambiguity. - Gilda Radner


Today, I was offered and accepted an amazing new job that is a great fit for me financially and professionally. It will open so many doors in the future and I'm just so lucky to have been chosen.

It is related to this temporary position I received, out of the blue, through a temp agency.

And all I can think of is how serendipitous and wonderful life really can be.

And how this quote definitely stretches towards my own journey to a better and healthier life.

Who knows why I had to get up to 275 pounds? And who knows why I decided to tape a football game that I would be watching from the stands live? And who knows why ESPN decided to zoom in on 275 pound me?

But all those events, led me to an a-ha moment, where I never wanted to look like that again. That led me to googling "Free Weight Loss Plans" which led me straight to SparkPeople.

Which has absolutely changed my life. Every time I've had an up or down on this journey, I've questioned why it happened. But all those ups and downs happened to get me to where I am today.

I will continue to have events and moments in my life, that seem out of place, or unfortunate, or even surprisingly amazing.

But they are all happening for a reason. They are happening so that I learn to make the best of every moment.

I'm going to make today better than yesterday. And tomorrow better than today.

I hope you will too.

    How cool! Congratulations on the job, and what a great “What inspired me to lose weight” story. I don’t know if I believe that *everything* happens for a reason, but I do believe that some things definitely happen for a reason (the trigger for your weight loss, the way I met my husband, the way I managed to get a foot in the door in a career field that is very difficult to get into - despite the crap pay…)….so yay!!

    ESPN decided to zoom in a 275 lb. version of you because you are cute! You've never been able to hide it. Congratulations of getting a great job!

    Wow! I don't believe in coincidences. I believe everything that happens to us, happens for a reason and that God ordains each moment for a purpose. Even those times that are hard and seem impossible, stretch us and make us stronger. That moment at the football game that you later saw on your video-the purpose was to make you stronger, wiser! And look, even now He is adding to who you are!! You have been gifted mightily!! Congratulations!!

    Congrats on the new job!! Very exciting!!

Ironic - on my way to work this morning, I was reflecting on the strange events in my life that led me to where I am now - some good, some average, and some truly heart-breaking. Seeing where I am now, it's hard to regret some of the terrible things that have happened because the tough times have truly defined me as a person, and us as a family. There are days that I have litterally just "trudged through" to make it to the end with some sanity still in tact, and there have been marvelous days that I wished would never end. When you sum it all up, the good surely outweighs the bad.

I hope your new position is everything you want it to be and more...keep us posted on how it's going!!
