I need to say "thank you" to someone really special today. Her name is Maggie and she blogs over at Finding Myself.
Maggie was one of my first "followers" and she has been a true-blue blogging friend. I absolutely love her blog and all that she shares over there--I never miss a post. And, I appreciate all of the nice comments she gives to me here at What's Mine Is Yours.
On Tuesday, I shared the issues that I am having with eating, and my fears about getting unhealthy. Maggie responded with a supportive comment that got us going back and forth sending each other emails about our days, our exercise, and what we are eating.
We both know people in addiction recovery groups, and we like the idea of having an accountability partner, so that is what we're being for each other. And you know what? It's working. I've tried this before with people close to me, but it hasn't worked. But, it is working with Maggie. Maybe it's that I don't know her in person or that she is new in my life and I want to keep her impressed. At the same time, I don't feel afraid that she would look down on me if I had a bad day.
I know it's only been a few days, but what we are doing is working for me, and it sounds like it is helping Maggie too. I really hope it is.
So, thanks Maggie! I hope we share many, many more emails and can support each other for a long time to come!
