This is it. The final day of the series.
I hope that this has been helpful. Encouraging. Given you one good practice to adopt. Given you ideas of poor practices to cease. Given you hope. Given you the courage to make changes even when those closest are not providing support. Given you the strength to say no without qualifications or excuses. Given you something for your emotional tool kit that you can draw on as needed.
For me, this series has been extremely cathartic in a way I would never have anticipated when I began penning these glimpses into my journey a month ago.
I feel that perhaps I have finally and at long last, lost the final 20 pounds of my emotional baggage. Carting that around was more exhausting than the nearly 200 pounds of excess physical weight was.
I had some interesting and unexpected intersections in life happen in the past 30 days that galvanized certain life-saving choices I had to make (or break) in relationships. I don’t believe any of the people who played a role in those life moments even realize that they said or asked exactly the right thing at exactly the right time. And yet they surely did all of that, and in a Pay It Forward style of thanks I will seek to radiate a message of hope and possibilities to others.
I thank you for taking time from your day to follow these snippets of my journey and hope at least one sentence or idea of the past 30 days has impacted you positively.
And the journey continues…
