I am incredibly grateful for each and every one of you. I didn't start this blog to change the world, or save some much deserving animal from extinction (although if anybody dabbled with eating a vegetarian meal because of it, I consider that success), I didn't start it to bring attention to a terrible tragedy in a far away place. I wish I were that big.
Truth is, I am a really simple girl. I was struggling with myself. How I fed myself and took care of me and the ways in which I saw myself. I needed to change and wanted to be accountable to that change. Blogging became my tool to do that.
So first and foremost I am hugely indebted to and thankful for Tracy Anderson. She's an amazing woman with so much heart and spirit. Her spirit transcends the television screen and jumps right off the pages of her book and touches the heart of every single person who trusts her enough to let her transform them.
Because of Tracy, this blog had a purpose, and one by one, you all showed up and you continue to show up, not just here, but to your own mats and dance floors and kitchens in towns and cities in countries around the world and our community keeps growing. You have all touched me in ways words can never fully express. But they are tangible ways that have changed my life one little habit at a time.
Just yesterday, I was exhausted and achy, still lying in bed thinking up excuses for skipping my workout. Then I remembered Trish's comment about how level one of Continuity 2 was kicking her ass too, but she thought about how after day three, things get easier so she pushed through. So I got up and I pushed through too.
Do you really have any idea how much I am touched by your daily comments? How knowing that you're doing this too gets me through? Well I am telling you now. Thank you for making a difference in my life every single day. Chi Meegwetch!
And if that's not enough, I awoke today to a link from Tracy's blog with her message to all of us. I was so inspired. It's why I love her, why we love her. So thought I'd share her message with you here. Enjoy.
Exciting isn't it? I wonder what the "after holiday meal plan and exercise boost" will be? Guess we'll have to stay tuned. Happy Thanksgiving, no matter where you are.
