DGO also known as a Dazzling Glimpse of the Obvious. It is a wondrous thing when that occurs. It could be during an embarrassing moment, or it could bring about a realization that will create happiness and personal joy.
I had this DGO when cruising around on facebook. One of my friends who is a talented baker made a comment about being stupid. I commented to her that she is brilliant and why, and it lifted her spirits, especially when others echoed the sentiment. It cost me nothing to do this, and I felt better for reminding her she is a wonderful person with value. And then as I continued to look at my facebook feed, I was brought down by a sarcastic and rude feed that I subscribed to. At that point I decided it was time to cut this kind of negativity out of my life, so I unsubscribed from that site and am more focused on my friends and their lives, and less on the "humor" sites that are actually more mean than funny.
It's quite refreshing not bombarding myself with this and it is just one small step in the betterment of me. And let's face it, this year it is ALL about me!
I don't want to lose weight and that be my sole focus, and be one of those people who starts to get on others about what they are eating. I have met those people, and they are a major suck to be around. I want to enjoy the people I surround myself with, let them go through their own journey at their own pace, and be open with my journey when asked.
So here is to the last 4 months of the year being a calm, uplifting positive journey.
