When I started Common Sense Health back in November of 2009, I really had no idea of the impact or outreach this little venture would have; and as a result how many people would be touched and how deeply I would be touched as well.
We started out sharing information about preventative Health and overall Wellness. I shared a number of articles about overcoming obstacles and rising above current circumstances, in order to life a more rich and full life.
Over the years I shared the details of difficult times I had faced (divorce, weight and body image challenges, facing your fears, gaining clarity in challenging times) and what actions I took to move through and past them. As a result of my sharing, people reached back out to me.
They reached out with words of appreciation, telling me that the words I wrote were exactly what they needed to hear at the exact right time, they reached out with words that said "It's easy for you, but not for me because...", they reached out to share their stories...many of which brought me to tears.
I am grateful for all of it; and while I believe our global connectivity is a gift, there is also a great chasm of darkness and loneliness within this quantum field of connectivity.
Running CSH has taught me to be more present in every day interactions as well. The checker who is moving a little too slowly for your schedule may have lost her husband a few months ago. Your doctor, who was perhaps a little abrupt with you, may be going through an awful divorce. You, yourself, may be dealing with insecurities, illness, financial concerns and you may not know where the answers to your current set of circumstances are coming from.
Everyone has their challenges; and you are touching people every day, whether you realize it or not. You are choosing to connect with or cut yourself off from those you come in contact with...whether it's virtual or in person.
One of the greatest lessons I've learned is to try to be kind, try not to judge, listen and offer what you can in terms of the vast *life library* you bring to the interaction. Your experiences, lessons and what you did to overcome, may very well be able to positively touch another person.
You have the ability to touch in ways that you never thought possible and make the world a better place in the process. Just do it!
