This was the Spark QOTD for October 24, 2012. I didn’t use it for that day, but it spoke to me enough that I wanted to use it at a later date.
I guess today is that day as I didn’t really feel that the two quotes provided by the apps I’m using really spoke to me. Every now and then I take stock of who I have in my life, and I have to say I think I chose pretty well. I have friends who are there for me, no matter what. And I definitely have friends who support me in everything I do. So how are they good for my health?
In a couple of ways actually; not only physically in my weight loss journey, but also mentally. A good friend will provide support and be a cheerleader as this path is traveled. They’ll understand when you decline certain items and even gently nudge you back onto the path when you stray. A good friend doesn’t have to even be physically near you; I’ve made a lot of good friends who are “invisible”; they are all people that I’ve meet during my journey online and we support each other and cheer each others accomplishments. I think this journey would be a lot harder if I didn’t have such wonderful people in my life reminding me that I can do this.
