Secret Weapon For Success
As many of you know, in March I began an interesting journey... A journey that has been terrifying, exhilarating, and very insightful, the journey of starting a new career path.
You can well imagine that has meant significant changes in our family, our health, and, well, my ability to blog every day. (Hence the 2 am blog when I'm having insomnia.) It's been interesting to see this side of the business up close and personal, and even to meet some of my loyal readers, as well as patients that my husband cares so much about.
The biggest thing I have learned through this process has been humility! That's right, humility. I work so hard to get things right for patients, other physicians, and our family, but trying to do this all perfectly has about sent me to the loony bin at times! Then, one day, I realized, that I simply cannot, in my own strength do it all (let alone perfectly!). Then, about one month into our transition, I was reading in my Bible in 2 Chronicles 20 and it was one of the strangest battle strategies ever recorded. The King was hopelessly outnumbered by a fierce enemy, and after asking for God's blessing and God assuring the victory, the King decided on his battle strategy- not tanks, or missiles, but something even more powerful- humility and praise to the only ONE who deserves it!
He got out the band, cranked up the music, and began full on worship of God, and you know what? It was one of THE all time best victories in the nation's history. Why? Because he knew how small he was, but he also knew how BIG his God was. This inspired me! I felt ill prepared with my health, my large family, and my inexperience to take over the task I had been called to, but God, in HIS faithfulness has blessed us tremendously with awesome patients, and lots of growth. Humbly trusting that HE would take care of me and supply our needs, that HE would go before me gave me the courage to try something new. Remembering that this was a calling HE had set before me gives me the strength to win the battles. Because we know who we serve, and we know we are called every day to help change people's lives with the message of hope and health for body, mind, and spirit.
Thank you for your patience as I hopefully begin to blog more, and keep checking back with supplementrelief.com for more exciting products that I'm learning about as I work with patients each day!

As many of you know from my older posts, right now I'm struggling with my thyroid. I have to be honest when I say I try to smile through the struggle because I don't want to be a joy sucker, someone who sucks the oxygen out of a room upon entry.
