So, I woke up this morning at the are-you-kidding-me time of 3:30. I tossed and turned a bit, but ultimately accepted that I was not going to be able to fall back to sleep. I crawled out of bed and headed to the living room to enjoy some quiet time while checking email.
When I turned on my iPad, I was swamped with new email and notifications. And not just from people I know, either. There were all sorts of fabulous new Spark Members commenting on my blog. I wondered, "who are you people?"
And then I saw it. An email from SparkPeople with yesterday's blog featured. Well, well. That explained it. Now I know how all these new folks found me. I love it. Absolutely!
And the best part about having a blog that gets a little attention? All of the powerful and personal responses that people share after reading it. It's feel-good validation that helps me stay motivated and inspired.
So, thank you to everyone who has shared a bit of you with the rest of us in the comments. You are all the perfect reminders to me that the Spark Community is absolutely amazing!
Me, this morning, after my 12+ mile bike ride to celebrate 12/12/12.
