DO I MATTER?
Oprah often says there is one common denominator about all people, no matter who you are. We all want to know that what we do, what we say and who we are matters.
Recently my high school class had it’s 20th reunion. High school was a difficult and awkward period for me. Friendships were particularly difficult so when it was time to make plans to attend the reunion, it wasn’t even a thought for me to go.
I figured no one would want to see me. No one would care. I DID have a couple of friends reach out and ask if I was going. It felt good. It made me feel good that some people cared.
After the reunion, only one friend reached out, had hoped I would show. One friend. .
This is my reality. Yes, it’s just high school. Yes, it was a million years ago. But this brought up old wounds. .
One of my fellow classmates had started a thread about comparing our school to the one in 13 Reasons Why. I had avoided watching it because it’s an uncomfortable theme for me. But now it was time. And after watching it, it makes me wonder, were others just as lonely as I? Maybe I’m not so alone.
I know that I’m not alone anymore. I have some of the best friends and business partners, such as these women in this picture with me. They know my ugly truths and love me anyway. They elevate me to higher standards, and allow me to do the same with them. .
I have so much gratitude to be able to spend the next week, not only learning and growing myself and my business, but to be with these amazing women as we do it together. Not only will we be together, but we will also be joined with other likeminded women and men. Women and men that have their sole purpose to help others live more healthy and fulfilling lives. Women and men that TRULY care for one another.
We are about to take over Indy. If you’re in the area, you have the opportunity to join us, on Saturday, as we take over the streets for a SUPER workout. Let me know and I would LOVE to get you more info. If not, keep watching. I have some exciting and amazing experiences to share with you. .
