loss is universal...so is friendship

this world gives us so many challenges... the highest of highs and sometimes the lowest of lows. my heart goes out to a good friend, steve from logmyloss.com
he has just lost his father and I know our thoughts and prayers are with him.

so rather than the usual banter... I just want to take a minute to say, that relationships are the most meaningful of our experiences here on earth. Every effort we make, professional or personally is in an effort to create better connections with those around us. Whether the relationship is with ourselves or with other valued individuals, we grow as we develop these synergies. Whether you believe in an afterlife or not, you can take value from this gentle reminder of how short our life here is, and how important every moment can become. So a little thank you to you all for putting up with me on this journey, whether you say some thing or nothing, all the little 'nothings' I experience from you has made this journey all the richer.

My heart goes out to Steve and anyone else experiencing a loss. Thanks for being part of my life's tapestry.

Hi! I started a new blog to document my weight loss journey. Since I want to be brutally honest, I've kept it anonymous - therefore can't invite my friends to read it. I'm looking for some followers so I have a little support in this. Check out my blog if you'd like! :)

Ugh. I'm just finding out now. So caught up in life I couldn't get to the blog world as much. So now I'm off to visit Steve's blog.

xoxo to you! :)
