It’s Time Warp Tuesday again! Woot! This week’s theme is “hero” and luckily I recently wrote a post about a woman who I consider to be truly inspirational. While I never called her my “hero” in the post, I believe she wears the newly bestowed title well.
If you want to read about my hero, go here.
(You probably should click over there since the rest of this post is about what I wrote in the other post. To make it easier I’ve bolded and italicized the parts about my hero.)
So yeah, J rocks my socks off. She is amazing and I want to be her when I grow up. (And then I want to be Tina Fey, of course). All kidding aside, she is a truly remarkable person and I feel honored and very grateful to have “met” her. I hope some day we can meet in real life and go to yoga together and tell stories over hot tea while anticipating some amazing dish she’s crafted in her kitchen.
To get a better idea of just how amazing J is go read this.
(You really should go read that. It’s a fantabulous piece.)
I wrote in my previous post about J and how she has inspired me to find a new, more positive intention. Unfortunately I have not yet discovered that intention or been able to nuture that positivity. To be fair, I’ve only had two months to make an attempt, and those were the first two months of the school year, never an easy time to exude positivity. I still have hope that I can change the way I see the world, especially if I have J to look towards for advice and guidance.
Thank you J for showing me what is possible. Thank you for supporting me on my journey, no matter where my ramblings lead. And thank you for never giving up on me, even when I just seem to be moving in circles. Knowing that you believe I will move in a more positive direction some day is enough to keep me trying.
I just need to keep trying, right?
I think that’s what my hero would tell me to do.
