Looking outwards for Inspiration

Sunday, March 10, 2013

Recently, I have been faced with some challenging personal issues. I have felt very wrapped up in my own world, and have started to let some "treats" slip into my diet. I have patted myself on the back for not allowing them to become massive binges, but even so, I can feel in my body that they aren't doing me any favours.

Today, I opened my SP mail and read that one of my very inspiring Team Leaders is facing her own extremely challenging personal issues. This is a woman who has lost an incredible amount of weight and has given back to SP, through her time and warmth as a TL, to motivate and inspire others.

Faced with life and death issues, she is still checking in regularly with SP.

My issues seem less important when reminded of the depth of challenge that life can give us. She has shown me that in times of trouble, it really is better to look outward and give, rather than be introspective and implode.

Thanks Susie... and may the future bring all things good to you and yours. emoticon
