When I started this blog earlier this year, I had no idea it would become what it has. It was originally intended to be a sort of account and accountability for my journey from fat and unfit and unhealthy to fit, fab and healthy. I never really considered that I would inspire other people. I just needed something to keep me on track and nothing in the past has worked. And while this whole journey into blogdom has started out slowly, it seems to be picking up momentum recently. Probably because I've been devoting more of my time to it.
Diane, I love what you said in your comment ... that it's important to realize that what we have to say matters, even if no one hears it. Sometimes I write for someone ... someone who needs the encouragement and who deserves the very best that life has to offer them, but who is perhaps in a rather difficult place. Sometimes I write for myself. I need to get something off my chest.
So I hope you all know that you are my inspiration for keeping up this blog. I try to make sure that I write every day. Maybe just a short, silly post; sometimes one of my long rambling thoughts are coming too fast and furious for me posts. I appreciate your encouragement and your willingness to be a part of my life.
Other than Barry, my major passion is gardening. But when you live in Southern Ontario, months go by with absolutely nothing to do 'cause it's kind frozen tundra out there. Today is definitely one of those days. I used to build scale models with Barry. But I burned myself out. Fall and Winter have always been tough times for me. I suffer from SAD and usually dip into depression during the Winter. So I"ve been looking for a replacement passion. I believe I've found it. It's a great interest that Barry and I can share but we're still separate. We share some followers; we follow some of the same blogs. So it gives us stuff to talk about. Marriage takes work and sometimes you get into ruts. So you gotta do something that gets you out of them. Hence the blogging.
So I hope I can continue to inspire, continue to perhaps entertain and continue to share some of my life with you. And please, continue to share yours with me. I love to hear how you think, how you feel, how things affect you.
Here's to a fabulous life ...
