Well…I wasn’t selected to be a Mamavation Mom last Monday night, but three amazing women were. While I am happy for Lolo, Andrea, and Laura, I must admit to being temporarily swallowed up by grief. Many of you sent me uplifting messages that went un-replied, but none of those went unnoticed. I wanted to write before now to let you know that I am ok, that I still have my game face on, and tell you about my new plan of action. However, for several days that just wasn’t true. Today, I look back on a week that has felt like years, and I am proud to say,
I got this we got this.
Instead of wasting any more time feeing like I let my loved ones down, I decided to just NOT let you down. I reached out to some of my support network and created a game plan. Krissy and I no longer feel like losers we thought we were a week ago. I know I am being lifted up by too many people to hit the ground, (unless I were stupid enough to jump). So although we are still working out some kinks and still learning what our plan will look like exactly, we are in a much better place. We are in a world over-populated with awesome.
So while I cannot name everyone who has helped me turn this week around, you know who you are and I love you! Thank you!!
If you feel like you need a new plan, need extra support, feel stuck, or unworthy, you are NOT alone!!

You are not a loser and you know it. You are amazing. I am proud of you that you’re not sulking about your loss. Sulking goes no where. Just remember think positive and positive things will start happening. Keep it up. WE can do this! 🙂 Have a great week!

I’m so sorry for your disappointment. I remember having to write the post the day after I lost and it was so hard to put finger to keyboard. But you know what? You STILL have support. You STILL have resources. You can STILL do this.

(Hugs) That saying about runners applies to all, Finishing dead last is better than not finishing, which is better than not starting at all. I am very happy to hear that you aren’t giving up.

There is no reason to feel like a loser here. So you didn’t become a Mamavation Mom THIS time around, but that doesn’t mean there can’t be a NEXT time around. Also, the more important thing is not to get caught up in the title. It is more important to focus on what is WITHIN you than some title. You still have the desire to get healthy and to help support your Mamavation Sistahood. Focus on that and work towards that. You are in no way a loser.
