I’ve been fighting a sense of burnout, lately. I’m down to the last bit of the book, but the deadline is looming closer and paralysis is setting in. This morning, before I even poured my coffee this landed in my inbox. It made my day, so I thought I would share it with you. Don’t worry, it’s not one of those smarmy chain letter things, I wouldn’t do that to y’all.
I saw this article this morning: Skinniest People Grocery Shop Here (the article has been removed from the web as far as I can tell)
My first (and second, and third) thought … this is why we need you. This is why we need Home Ec 101. It’s articles like this that I would otherwise walk away from thinking, “Well, I don’t have the money to shop at Whole Foods or the mad skillz they refer to needing in order to eat a healthful, low-calorie diet, so because of my economic status, I am doomed to a life of obesity. Therefore, why bother trying.” But this is exactly the opposite of what you’re teaching us is true. We all can make better choices, even with limited or severely limited funds. And we all can improve our skills, no matter what the starting point. It’s like I wanted to scream at the author of the article, “AREN’T YOU LISTENING TO WHAT HEATHER IS TEACHING US?” but normally when I scream at the interwebz, nobody answers me. Probably a good thing.
Anyway, good morning to you, and thank you for helping those of us who really want to do better but would be completely lost without you. And believe me, there’s a million of people just like me out there who need your site thinking the exact same thing I am, they just don’t send you random and verbose emails before they get out of the bed in the morning like I am prone to do.
It made my day to know someone recognizes what I’m trying to do. I hope each of you find that in some way today. Have a great weekend.
