We often live in our own little world. I know I do and can have tunnel vision depending on the situation. I will march to the own beat of my drum. I’m not saying that I am oblivious to what is going on around me; I just know I move in a way that is impactful to my life and sanity. Today I was getting my hair cut and my beautician was asking me about the diet plan that I am currently on. Now I have not told her what I am doing but come to find out her sister is apart of the same support group and is now leaning on me for support. To say I was floored is an understatement. I’ve had bad days when I don’t follow plan. I am carb lover who is struggling with giving up the buttery rolls for a while. I personally have not made many comments in the group. I read the post for information only and motivation. It’s nice to see others striving for the same goal as you. But I never thought of myself as someone to watch.
Do I now feel pressure? Absolutely, but not in a bad way. I feel as sense of honor that someone is leaning on me for support even though we may not have direct contact. It is great knowing something you are trying to do positively is the motivation someone else. So what does this mean now that I know someone is watching? I am glad you asked. It means I must hold myself accountable. It means I cannot beat myself up for having a bad couple of days. It means I must continue to strive to be a better me. Why? Because someone is watching.
