Good comes out of bad

Thursday, May 15, 2014

You know, I realized recently that even the truly awful stuff has some good in it. I've had some hard times, but they made me stronger, made me appreciate the generosity and kindness of others, and helped me to meet some that are truly kind people.

So, I gained a bunch of weight and got bigger than I ever thought I would. But I joined a great online group and made a bunch of friends, gained a lot of insight, and learned to appreciate things I'd forgotten. I'd forgotten how wonderful it is to walk for a few miles, or that kale is yummy. I'd forgotten how to make new friends. And mostly I had forgotten how to feel god about myself.

So glad I'm starting to remember. Thank you friends for reminding me.

    Isn't Spark People a great resource and an even greater bunch of people? I have made some really good friends that I can easily talk to. Oh, how I needed that.
I wish for you the best of everything. You can do it. You've got a huge cheering section behind you.

    What a beautiful blog, Amy - you said it all so well. Sometimes it seems that the good we get from difficult times in our lives has to do with things we didn't even realize we needed. I believe you'll be a great teacher because of your kind and generous heart...the most important prerequisite.

Glad you got the server issues taken care of - I missed you! Have a super rest of the week, Friend.

:) Gail
