Celebrating small steps and lovely things...

Kelly Rae made me realize more than ever that we have to celebrate the small steps of our journey (whatever that journey may be... creative or otherwise). It's has become so clear to me that focusing on the positive parts of life, those small victories, has such a powerful way of washing away those negative voices pecking away at our self esteem and strength. "Negative Nelly" is slowing fading into the background as "Positive Polly" is making her debut... she's here, she really is.

Over the course of the last couple weeks, I have watched more and more people follow me and my journey, "like" my fan page, and email me with lovely words of encouragement.... THANK YOU!! The love that has crossed the web has been so powerful and life changing.... THANK YOU!!

I'm also striving to celebrate the "lovely things" in my life... the main thing being my husband-to-be, Joseph. I don't think you understand how amazing this man is. I've said it before, but I'll say it again... he is the most supportive and loving man a girl could ever pray for... and I did pray for him. My prayers were answered. He has always pushed me to follow my dreams, and it's because of him that I have the strength and courage to push through. I love you my Honeybush!!!

Great post!! One of the biggest blessings from Kellys class is all the supportive friends we have made.
Your comments on your hubby-to-be were so sweet. I will be married 15years in Oct and also have one of those supportive guys. It means the world!! Congrats on finding a good one :-) And congrats on the baby steps - I am right there with ya!
