I am 58, overweight again, and trying to get healthy. I am blogging about weight loss and everyday issues for women. My blog will include ramblings about the daily life of a mother, grandmother, wife and friend. I would love to have you come along for the ride!
Day 25, Saturday:Something someone told you about yourself that you'll never forget (good or bad)
I remember being in the 7th grade and I had a teacher named Mrs. Kelly. Mrs. Kelly was one of my favorite teachers. She and I connected from the very beginning of that year.
Mrs. Kelly asked me to stay after class one day so she could talk to me. I was afraid I had done something wrong.
Mrs. Kelly had something to tell me. She knew that I had grown up in a large family and that we weren't very well off. She told me that day that I had the potential to do anything that I wanted in life. She said I was one of the best students in the entire school and that all I had to do was work and I could do anything I wanted.
I think that was the first time that I realized that I had a chance to do something with my life. I felt really special that day.
There were times in my life that I would think that I couldn't do something and I would remember back to that day and think "I can do anything."
I is amazing what a teacher can accomplish in a child's life with just a few kind words.
I was 11 years old when she told me that I could do anything and here I am 47 years later and I remember that conversation and how it made me feel.
Mrs. Kelly had a major impact on my life.
Did someone tell you something about yourself that has made an impact on your life? Good or bad.
