A Little Bit of Awesome
Because we all need a little bit of mid-week awesome. Right?

And there’s one more thing, more awesome than numbered paper clips and pantone boxes and polka dotted pears. Last week I posted about 17 year old blogger Rachel. She desperately needed a few words of encouragement, and to those who went to visit her blog, thank you. I have been checking up on her each day since she was Love Bombed and you would not believe the difference in her life in just one short week. It gives me goosebumps to see how a few sentences from a relatively few people could be such an amazing force for good in her life.
” What I wanted to say, was that your comments couldn’t have come at a better time. I’m ashamed to admit it but I planned on coming home and hurting myself, and well, I wasn’t too worried about the outcome. When I signed onto my blog to find over 400 comments, I started to read them and was instantly overwhelmed by the love I felt from people I’d never met. It was the best feeling in the world, and as I sit here, a few hours later, it still brings tears to my eyes to think about. ”
In less than one week she went from feeling that no one would notice if she never showed up for life again to this, which she posted yesterday:
” …Maybe I’m me. And Maybe, for once, being JUST ME is OK. “
I don’t even know her, but I think my heart has grown three sizes. There is good in the world, and she has found it. Those that left her words of encouragement and love showed her where it was. Watching her find it, has reminded me that it is there. Who knew, it’s been here on the internet all this time. Awesome, right?
