Better Than Any Prize

So I am a semi-finalist in the Best Coaching Blogs of 2010 competition.  I was honored to be included with such incredible blog writers at Laurie Foley and Jeannette Maw.  But the contest has given me something much more rewarding than any prize.  I had wanted to finish in the top ten, but that doesn’t matter anymore because I have already received my award.

The comments from readers have truly touched my heart.  I never would have thought that honestly sharing my experiences would touch so many others.  Deb left a comment on the contest page, “I love the way Melissa writes – when you are carrying a load on your shoulders you can feel it melt away!”  Knowing that my words can make a difference in someone’s life brings tears of joy to my eyes.  And M. wrote “They [the posts] really make you take a look at your life in a way that you might not have thought of before.”

I became a coach because I wanted to make the world a better place, one person at a time.  I am honored that my words are helping to do just that.  There is no greater joy than making someone else happy, content, and hopeful.

No matter what happens in the competition, I feel like a winner.  Thank you all for your support.  I am so glad I can serve you in making your life just that little bit better.


  1. I got goosebumps reading that the REAL win is knowing your writing is making a difference – you are SO right about that!

    And in that respect, the one that matters most, congrats on being a winner, my friend!!

  2. Jeannette, you of all people should know the joy of having your writing make a difference.

    Keep up the good work, Winner!
