I have been inspired by so many people around me. The cheerleaders in my real life who remind me to keep going because no matter what they will always be here for me (one of my besties-Laura, who’s let me be me in my entirety and been unwavering in her support), the connections I’ve made in the blogging world (like this amazing woman who emits positivity and humour), a few very important members of my online forum, Thyr’vors, and a woman named Maryanne, who I have never met though I feel as if we are old dear friends.
Sometimes people have no idea how deeply they can affect a person just with their words and simple actions. You have all made a huge difference in my life, and I want to thank you for reminding me who I am and why I fight. Because of the positive attitudes you continue to infect me with I wanted to start doing something positive, occasional messages of affirmation. Whether they be for myself or for others.
I’ll kick it off with a message for myself…. (though I suspect many others will benefit from these words too.)
