YOU have lightened up my world!
From the bottom of my heart, thank you!
It is almost the 9-month anniversary of my blog – can you believe it? What a journey it has been!
I really just wanted to say a big THANK YOU for supporting me on my journey of health.
Dreams really do come true!
9 months ago when I very reluctantly released my blog (my boyfriend, Dean made me!!), I never ever imagined that I would even have 1 follower!! Truly. I remember saying to Dean, “ I will just write the posts, upload them and in a few years I will put it live, when I have the confidence and the 5 years of study under my belt”. Who would read it? I questioned.
I was so scared to reveal my authentic self, my struggles and doubted my ability to inspire.
Fear can be so limiting.
And then YOU came along and blew me away! And reminded me of how much I have inside of me to give and inspire.
I also knew when releasing the blog came with a responsibility. A responsibility to be HONEST, a responsibility to know what the heck I was talking about and a responsibility to walk the talk. I wanted to be a positive role model after all. And I questioned – did I have thick enough skin to ignore the judgment, jealousy or criticism that always comes with putting yourself out there. And I have to tell you – in the 9 months – I have only received ONE negative email, just one. How amazing is that! I believe you are on my side because I have revealed my true self.
Lesson learnt…Don’t be afraid to be you! Because you have something so unique and special to offer the world. You have the ability to inspire others.
You have overwhelmed me with your words in your emails, comments and messages. Each email I receive brings me so much inspiration and although I haven’t been able to reply to all of them – please know that YOU have inspired me with your own stories and struggles. I have read each email with tears in my eyes. You have taught me so much about myself, my capabilities as a human being and you reminded me of the power of the human connection and how important it is that we support one another.
I am so grateful to have you learning with me and embracing a healthier life with me.
YOU are amazing.
It is so inspiring to see you taking health seriously and trying to embrace a healthier lifestyle. Look what amazing things you are doing for yourself! Be proud! Remember small steps make such a difference. With all this talk of ‘self love’ among the health community, please know that making a healthy choice is the essence of self-love in my opinion.
You are my inspiration and my motivation. Again, you light up my world.
