Fantabulous Day #154 Wednesday Rewind #54 – Recognize Your Fan Club

I decided to try something different.  I wanted to take a look back to see what I was doing last year at this time.  Blogs are an amazing way to take a snap shot in time.  At this time last year, my blog was still in its infancy and my words were a little dry.  Don’t get me wrong, I have always had good stuff to share.  So here we go…this is what I posted 9/24/2011.  (My Exact Post) Start…..

  I thought the title for today’s post was so appropriate.  I was walking down the street at my new site here in sunny Kurkuk, Iraq.  Don’t worry I am on a military installation.  Also keep in mind that I only got to this site a couple of days ago.  Back to the story.  There were people stopping me and yelling out of cars at me.  These were people that I have met over the years in different places.  Some of them I met in Afghanistan.  As I was walking yesterday and this happened, I said to myself  “there is another one of my fans”.

I only said it to myself, but I also thought to myself how conceded that would have seem to someone if I had said it out loud.  As I walked on, I recognized that there are so many people around me that support me in different ways.  There are my family that help with the things I need done at home and support my decision to work here overseas.  There are the people I work with that support me by being loyal and working hard so WE look good.  Then there are just the ordinary, extraordinary people that I meet everyday.

There is a fan club out there for everyone.  You have one even if you don’t know it.  Take a minute to think about it.

You will be surprised!

I was just about to lose my job, but unknowingly to me, I was also a few days away from being made a job offer for my current job.  It was a time of uncertainty for me, but I never thought that I would be jobless, not at all.

I would love to hear what you were doing a year ago on for this Wednesday Rewind. Go ahead lets hear it.  🙂

Still Your Lurvly & Lovable Lotus

    Love the fan club idea. It’s really important – we all have supporters and n return we are supporters for others. I love that- the feeling of being connected to other is amazing.

      Imagine, I am so much smarted this year and I wrote that a year ago. Maybe I was not as dumb I thought.

      We have to always remember that there is always someone holding us up. Nothing is done alone. 🙂

  2. Wasn’t blogging a year ago, but took a look back at my trusty Google Calendar and a year ago today, I was in Chicago with my boyfriend visiting his sister and her husband. I could use another fun trip like that!

    I was doing the blogging thing this time last year as well. My story is of injury and recovery. Jan 2011 I had back surgery and spent a majority of my time recovering, enjoying life. February of this year I had major knee surgery … Trying to smile daily still. 🙂

I would luv, luv, to hear from you! :)
