Those who inspire me
Sunday, March 27, 2011
People in general really inspire me. There are so many people who just keep trucking along when all else fails. It's unbelievable to me. I've been through some horrible things, but there are people out there who have been through much worse than me. They come through it with a smile on their faces and a willingness to still serve others. People inspire me in many different areas, too. There are those who are strong emotionally, those who are strong physically, and those who can endure no matter what the situation. Here's just a small list of these people whom I'm so fortunate to have in my life as a result of Sparkpeople:
Gosh Lorie! I get crazy when I have a lot going on, but you lady, have something going on all the freaking time! You are always so busy, yet you handle things with grace and dignity. You get done what needs to be done and weightloss is not to be forgotten. You know your limits and you do what you need to do to make a healthier you. Your words of encouragement will never be forgotten!
Goodness Kathy! I had no idea you have lost 85 pounds. You are a machine! You don't know it, but you've inspired me to get back to running. Your training schedule has been on my mind lately and all I wanna do is get back to it. Thanks lady!
How can one be so strong and inspiring at the same time? You have a bajillion things going on, yet you know how to take the time to be there for others, too. I wish I could be more like you! What an amazing motivator, supporter, and inspiration you are to many, many, MANY people around you.
Did ya know I want to be like you when I grow up? It's true! I've never known anyone with more self-discipline than you! Every time you say, "I won't be on much this weekend; I have to do my homework", I think, "well shoot! Me too!" Not only that, but way back when I first joined the Sunnies you talked about the marathons you were doing. I was inspired!
I'm motivated and inspired by you not only as a result of your amazing 60 pound loss to date (and that's NOT something to be taken lightly--you rock!), but I'm motivated by your kindness, too. Your ability to connect with others through your supportive words and caring attitude rubs off on me. I'm inspired by you every day!
You are friggin' hardcore, girl! I'm inspired by your ability to keep on, keepin' on and to meet and exceed the goals you set for yourself. I wanna be hardcore, too!
There are many, many others. STARLIGHT615 is a beast when it comes to P90X and Turbo Fire. She inspires me to do things I think i can't do! ROEANDGO inspires me to have a positive attitude no matter what I'm going through. UNICORN212 shows me what true wisdom is like. 2011WORTHIT inspires me through positivity and constant support. REACHINMYGOALS is always doing something that makes me want to reach for the stars as she does. TURBOCARRIE25 works out on a daily basis and every time I see her posts on FB, I feel like I need to get to the gym, too! HEALTH4LYFE is always running, running, running and I'm inspired to do the same. SYN-CA has beautiful words of advice that inspire me to be a better listener so I can do the same!
Please know that if I haven't mentioned you specifically, I'm still so very inspired by you all. I love and appreciate all of you more than you know. The support you have given me, the motivation I glean from you, and the inspiration you provide me is more than I could ever ask for.
