I just saw this on FB this morning and loved it. So here I am doing a quick blog b/c I think Spark is full of beautiful minds.
If you haven't read the blog "We are so much more than a number" by Stillmenewbody... I'd highly recommend it.
It amazes me that I can change my news feed and make a comment about my mojo for exercise being frozen & then I get a flood of comments... that INSPIRE me to get my butt moving :) That is what I love about Spark! We've all managed to find our way here for one reason or another, mostly I believe for weight loss or exercise or maintenance... and what we find is a group of people that reach out and push us to be the best we can be. It's this extended family of folks who love you for who you are... not based on what you look like... what your political or religious belief is... what your attitude is on a good day or a bad day ~ it's a place of acceptance. And support. And encouragement. And inspiration.
That is awesome!
I've met 2 Spark friends recently & when I sat down with both of them I felt like I've known them forever and truly felt genuine friendship with both. I have a feeling that if I went thru a good majority of my friend list and was blessed enough to meet everyone, I would feel the same exact way. And I love how Nora pointed out in her blog - no one cares about your weight... not like we care about our own! And all that leads me back to my preaching of positivity! We need to love ourselves & I think that is the first step to helping ourselves and helping others.
Thank you all for the numerous times you reach out to me & lift me up and push me in the right direction. Let's all continue to encourage & inspire each other... through the good, the bad and the ugly :) Love you!!!
