Life is not a 'brief candle.'

Thursday, October 25, 2007

I've been told to let my light shine. I prefer to sit in the corner, quietly flickering. In my past there has been a high penalty for calling attention to myself. I've put myself around people who would hurt me and then tried to stay out of their way. I've got to take control of my life. I've been told I have things to offer. I guess the first step is to be myself and not be ashamed of who I am.

    I hope that you do let your light shine, and that you surround yourself with people who appreciate you. That's at least as important as concentrating on your physical health. And I bet that being with supportive people will benefit your health goals. And being healthier may give you a better self-image. Maybe they will work together?

    Anyway, best wishes with all of your goals.

    Congratulations on making a commitment to yourself to improve your health. What I find most valuable about SP is the support and motivation from other members. Most of us are in the same boat because we are here for the purpose of improving our health. When we take the time to take care of ourselves by eating properly and exercising regulary, we will be much more in control of our lives and will have more to offer to others. With every smart choice you make in nutrition and exercise, your confidence will build, and your self-esteem will improve. You'll realize that you really are strong and determined. :-)
