What is the point of me putting all my efforts into this idea? Why am I doing this?
These are the questions you may be asking yourself, so here it is...
Growing up I was lucky enough to be blessed with the greatest family any kid could ever ask for.
My Mother and Father are singled handedly the two hardest working people I have ever known, my Sisters have all the potential in the world to accomplish great things and mean the world to me, and my Grandparents are my inspirations.
My Aunts, Uncles, Cousins, and closest friends have always pushed me to be the best I can be, and each of them would be there for me at any moment, of any day.
If it wasn't for my family, I wouldn't be where I am today. They are a support system unlike any other.
The one thing my parents emphasized to me and my sisters growing up more than anything else is to stand up for what you believe in. They always preached to me the importance of fighting for what is right, and proved it to me in their own efforts- they practiced what they preached.
After I eventually dropped 70 pounds, I found a new perspective on life. I realized that I'm not the only one out there who needed to change, but also realize other people don't have that support system or inspiration around them like I do.
I started Get Better, because I want to be that support system. I understand now that my purpose is to make at lest one persons day better.
I truly believe if you make one persons day better, than your day is a success.
My challenge to you today is this, go make one persons day better. It can be a family member, a friend, or someone you don't even know. It doesn't have to be a big gesture, even something as small as a smile as you walk on by can make a difference.
So there it is, I started Get Better, because of the love of my family, and understanding that it's now my turn to make other people feel special, just like my family does for me every single day.
