inspiration, half & half and the reality of it all…..
Today I woke up the same as yesterday made my coffee poured my half and hal….oh, wait. Today was not like yesterday. Today is the day that I realized this whole journey of weight loss and saving dogs is so much bigger (pun intended) than even I had realized. Today is the day that people from all over the country and OTHER countries had a connection to what I am doing and wrote kind words, encouraging words, offered support and pledged money and in a time when things are hard financially for so many, it speaks volumes for the animal lovers in the world! Today is the day a friend of mine took the time to do a small gesture that ended up unlocking the door for this effort. Today someone had the courage to be completely honest and share a little bit of themselves without judgement, and I was moved, humbled and touched beyond words.
Today I realized that what I want is to lose weight, and save dogs but I also want to be inspired and inspire those that feel connected to this project. I am well aware that without the support element of this journey, I fail. I want this to be a safe place for anyone who wants to share their struggles, whether it’s weight or something else. So much hate in the world, cruelty toward innocent animals, children, against each other…people who think differently, look differently, love differently…and if stopping here once a day or once a week can make you laugh, be inspired or inspire others then that is my greatest hope.
Today I realize this IS going to happen, and I have to tell myself to slow down and enjoy the ride as it is truly a gift and I want to share it with as many people as possible.
Today is definitely not the same as yesterday because today I am not using half and half in my coffee anymore……. 🙂
Have a safe and fun holiday everyone! Love on those doggies and other animal cuties if ya have em!
