You are probably doing it and you just don't see it as much!
Where ever there is real struggle, like with food, we lose respect for ourselves and then we often lose our sense of value. On our spiral into obesity, we start shutting down and we just stop contributing that value.
Then you get involved with Find Your Food and you start your journey on a ketogenic approach and as things often dramatically happen you get shaken up a bit and come to realize ALL IS NOT LOST!!!
When you realize all is not lost, you shift over to participating and contributing again!
I noticed it this past weekend at a small group. I brought a message about being strong and courageous and to NOT get discouraged...then I asked was anybody discouraged and someone spoke up and shared from that place and the value in the room started to rise. Then another shared!
When people come and participate they BRING VALUE because they are of value!
Failure makes us think we're not qualified and we have nothing to offer but as soon as you share that sense of failure the VALUE STARTS TO RISE IN THE ROOM as others reach out to offer their hope or help! More value gets added in the room! Soon the room is brimming with hope again!
Because WHEN YOU SHOW UP, you bring your value with you!
Your sense of failure will provoke the HOPE in another and they will share it. Your sense of confusion? It will provoke the help another carries, and soon we'll all understand better. YOU coming to a group in your worse place, or your best will add value! WHEN YOU SHOW UP, that's valuable!
YOU are what's valuable! When you come YOU ADD VALUE
I simply challenge you to embrace this, and let it write a new paragraph on the story of your life!
