I’ll let you in on a little secret…I strongly believe in something greater than both you or I. I love the idea of serendipity and am convinced that we are being provided with constant signs, if only we listen. So often, though, we are caught up in everything else that they are missed.
Here was one of my silly sI had been contemplating starting this blog for a while. In fact, I went through the entire sign up process and then never confirmed my email to finalize it. The message sat looming in my inbox since October. In rejoining Weight Watchers this week, I revisited the idea. As I sat down in front of the television with my husband last night, it crossed my mind yet again. We were sitting there watching, but not really watching, E! News. We were in a catatonic state–not yet ready for bed, but uncommitted to fully focusing on anything, either. I was zoned out thinking about the blog. That’s when it happened. E! News ended and Revenge Body aired. I was immediately sucked in. I could relate to everything that Will and Stephanie were feeling. From seeing myself as the ugly, fat friend to eating to ease the pain-I related to it all, tears welling in my eyes. I felt like they were talking to me. It sounds so silly, but watching and relating to people on this show was just the push I needed.
What was I afraid of? It was in that moment that I decided I was going to do this. As scary as it is to put yourself out there, maybe doing so will be the missing piece that I’ve needed. The universe spoke to me yesterday…I’m glad I was listening.
