I Hope My Message Was Heard.

This morning I sent a quiet message to a neighbor I do not know. I hope she received it. I saw her multiple times on my walk as she rode quite a distance behind her father on her bicycle.  Each time I saw this preteen, she was struggling for balance, walking her bike up inclines, and looking horribly uncomfortable. Each time I saw her, I sent messages to her that I hope she received, "You are doing it. You are getting stronger. Keep at it. You are stronger than you think." As I continued my walk, I realized that by sending her messages of strength rather than judging or ridiculing her in my mind, I did something magnificent for myself.  As I continued on, thinking about the week ahead of me, I felt stronger myself. I felt my own strength.  Positive thoughts ALWAYS win.


  1. Wow that is so true. Positive thoughts are best thing to keep us going. I often wonder if the negative imagery I harbor is turned back on me and causes me discomfort.

    Perhaps we need some negative thought buddies. That way we can each more our negative thoughts down the line.

  2. It is so like you to keep encouraging others. What a wonderful story.
