I have a dear friend who motivates me more than she can know. She has a weight issue and even though she drags her feet, she wants to follow my example in eating right and exercising. This has put me on a different plain entirely, in that I cannot do this for myself or for simple vanity reasons, I have her vested interest at heart. Since she has asthma and must watch her cholesterol, it gives me the added impetus to watch what I eat as well. If I did all of this just for myself, I probably wouldn't care at all, since I have never been motivated by my own personal ends. I could easily make excuses to cut corners otherwise.
I thank God for this friend who keeps me focused for her sake and thus for mine.
