Yesterday ended up being one of THOSE days. It wasn't good. I barely did anything. But I made a promise to someone that today would be different...and I hit the ground running this morning!
When I started this blog, I did it to encourage and empower people to become a better self. I did it to show anyone interested that getting healthy is not only attainable, but also to give real life results as I progressed. I have received many emails and messages along the way, thanking me for my honesty...telling me I inspire them.
It is always so flattering to know that somewhere, someone believes they can do it just by seeing me face things here. In fact, it's probably the main reason I blog. And it's the one reason I keep at this journey. Because EVERY BODY deserves to love themselves...every single person!
As you read in my last post, in 2013 I took some pretty large steps backward. I didn't intend to, but here I am at what feels like the starting gate AGAIN.
What is absolutely amazing and beautiful about the starting line this time is that I have the support and encouragement of others I've inspired in the past, checking in with me DAILY to get my fire lit. I had no idea that I'd even need the encouragement again, but I guess what goes around...comes around.
I've been communicating back and forth with a few readers. Some are dear friends that I have met along this journey, others are old friends I went to high school with, and others have been complete strangers! I want to thank each person who has reached out to me! I am so touched by the genuine response from all of you! It isn't easy publicly announcing the need to start over again. But the love I've felt has been amazing!
Each person who has reached out has had the same message for me: Don't Quit! I've been told that because I inspired THEM in the past to get healthy, they were now making it their mission to help ME along the journey this time around!
You guys!!! You have no idea how much it has meant! I started this blog to encourage others, and in doing so...you have no idea how much you lift me up! I feel like I get so much more out of this blog than any of you do....THANK YOU!!!
The reason I share this is to encourage anyone out there reading this to team up with me! There is power in numbers, there is power in support! Don't do this alone! Join me. Whatever you are trying to change, whatever you are trying to do....let's do it, NOW. TODAY! In 2014!! WE will come out on top!!!
