What is your story?

Monday, March 21, 2011

I got this quote from a friend's FB wall. It is so insightful: "We must be tender with each other. For every person walking past us on the street there is a story and a reason behind the behavior. Who knows what tragedy that soul has just crawled out of or what sadness she is going to step into with the very next stride..." -Melissa Bradford

I love that we can be understanding of each other. This is a very safe place to say "Hey I am struggling" or "Wow this was great today".

I am learning and grateful to all who have helped me on this journey.

    I love that BLOG. So true, you just don't know what someone else is going through. I love what PLAYBLUES22 says, just a smile.

    So true. We really don't know what is going in in people's lives. I sometimes get to see the other part of them and it is interesting to get to know people I would never meet in my normal life.

    I love the quote, a good reminder for us on how to treat others and ourselves. It starts with love and compassion and goes on from there. It is a blessing when we can come together and share our struggles and get encouragement rather than judgement.

    I have a different opinion of that since my brother drinks to much. I am more about the "tough love" since having stress in his life and then going to a bar to deal with it really isn't the answer. It is the same with MY overeating or making bad food choices. I keep using my BECK DIET SOLUTIONS to guide myself away from food as an answer to stress.

    Just the simple of act of writing a thank you has almost been forgotten. Saying thanks and being thankful are important parts of a healthy lifestyle.
