Small Rewards for Small Losses

Friday, October 08, 2010

It is nice to be rewarded for your hard work, for your diligence, and for your sacrifice. It's nice to think that the work itself is rewarding, or the weight loss is rewarding, or looking and feeling better is rewarding. And it is. But sometimes it is nice to have more.

This morning I got a little reward. Little is the key word, but is has made me giggle all day about the way our rewards can come. I have only been on this particular journey for a few months. I have lost a little weight, not a lot. I have lost around 8 pounds and one pant size. When I got dressed for work this morning I decided to try on a pair of slacks that I have not worn for a year. Maybe even two years. They FIT! Yay! That was a nice reward. But as a bonus, there was $10 in the pocket. It had been washed and put away with the pants, waiting for me to find it on this day. It has made me smile, giggle a little, and be grateful for small rewards.

Have a rewarding day!
