Blogging to Help
Wednesday, November 12, 2014
I blog for me. Of course, it is great when others appreciate my efforts, but really it helps me so much to savor and enjoy the positives and work through the challenges. The support and input I get from SparkFriends has helped me over and over.
My last blog, The Final Winner, saved my day!! I had had a bad morning. I tried to get an MRI but just freaked out and was terribly embarrassed. I will go back Monday after taking a pill. That should work. But blogging was just what I needed. I was able to tell the positive story again of my nephew, who I'm very proud of, and know that I have been a factor in his success. And then I got to tell the amazing story of David. He says he would not have started running without my encouragement to join the run-walk-run group. That all three of us (plus niece Ally) finished the Lakeland Red Ribbon Half Marathon on Saturday is a big victory. Focusing on that victory helps me balance out something I don't feel so good about. And now there are 20 supportive comments on that blog now, too. Thanks, everyone.
