As promised, this is my second personal post of the day. This post however, focuses its attention on you.
Yes, you there.
I want to say thank you. I believe you do so many things throughout the day, and most of those efforts will go unnoticed by those around you. Maybe because they’re in a hurry, or maybe because they are just as busy making their own for-the-good-of-mankind efforts. Often, we get lost in our own thoughts and habits to recognize those around us. (And perhaps that subject is better left for another time).
I want you to know that someone out there (me) knows you are doing your best, and wants to congratulate and commend you on your achievements.
You got out of bed, and socialized with your family for a few minutes. You finally beat your personal best. You were able to make your breakfast just perfectly. You went outside and enjoyed the fresh air for the first time in a month. You showed a smile. You finally laughed. You painted your toe nails, just because you felt like it. You actually answered that phone call from your friend, and managed a conversation. You looked in the mirror and liked your nose or your teeth just a bit more than you did yesterday. You made it through the interview, even though your chest felt tight.
Whatever you did today that took a lot of hard work and trying and maybe even a little sweat, thank you.
I’m so proud of who you are, and I’m so proud you’re still fighting. <3
