The most amazing thing has happened in the past few weeks. I started receiving feedback from people who have been so kind as to support me in my little project and have began reading The One Life Movement for themselves.
I know how needed it has been for me to write and I know how important it is for me to continue pushing forward with my story if only for one reason.
People are relating and connecting in ways I have only hoped and dreamed about up until now. An old school friend contacted me a few days ago to let me know how surprised she was to read my words and how similar they were to her own thoughts and trials and struggles. It not only led her to reach out to me, but also gave her the courage to reach out to her friends online and share her own story. She no longer felt she had to keep it all hidden inside. She no longer felt shame for having struggled. And then others opened up, showed support and offered solace for they too have felt feelings, and not known what to do about them.
To know that ONE person was impacted in such a positive way that she felt comfortable enough to tell me, and then take it amongst herself to reach out to others is EXACTLY what I hoped and dreamed would happen.
This is my point. This is my purpose. This is my future. To connect us, all of us, with ourselves and with each other again.
This is all about ONE life. And that even one life can make a huge impact, on oneself, and on everyone else around them. We can do this. I can do this. And I will.
To this woman who has allowed me to share this screenshot of her initial post, please know you have in turn given me the strength and courage to continue moving forward. Because of you, and your words I know without a shadow of a doubt that I am on the right path.
With gratitude. Xx
