Risks worth taking

Life might not be predictable, you might not know where the next turn is going to lead you, but should that stop you from taking risks, a leap of faith, going for the gusto?  Nothing worth having in life comes easy.  You are worth it.  You deserve it, really.  I call it being “positively” selfish.

I believe this to be true:  No one is capable of fully serving another without being complete themselves.  Have you ever come home from a hard day’s work, completely exhausted?  How was it for your family, your kids, or your loved one?  I’m sure they didn’t get the best of you.  Serving and giving your best to others is a lot like the family analogy, especially when it comes to living limitlessly.  Your cup has to be full if you are to serve and live completely.

This means that you need to do whatever it takes to fill up your cup.  Do it so others can see the complete you, in all of your glory.  Do it for you.  Live out who God created you to be.  There is no better time than now.

 Affirmations

Selfless serving comes naturally when my cup is full
I will do everything within my power to become whole
