Over the past 6 years I haven't needed to worry about presenting in front of anyone. I haven't been formally teaching. I haven't been formally presenting anywhere. I've been a stay at home mom and wife. I've loved it. But it's easy to get in your little bubble and not challenge yourself. In doing that, I think we end up limiting ourselves sometimes. In limiting ourselves, I have to ask...are we really living life to the fullest or are we just playing it safe?
|What living should look like...|
Today, my Handsome Hubby and I presented at his work for their Wellness Wednesdays lunch meeting. He did his part of the presentation and then I was up. I'll be honest, I was terrified. I considered backing out several times. But I knew it wasn't what I was supposed to do. I was meant to present and that's what I did. I was scared for the first minute or two. I shared my abbreviated story of why clean eating means so much to me. How I survived a heart attack at the age of 34. Then I found my groove and it flowed.
Before I presented, I prayed for strength and that God would give me the words to speak. There was so much I could have covered. I prayed He would use me for what He wanted covered. It might sound strange if you don't share my faith but that's what I wanted. I wanted to be as useful as possible. I wanted my words to help someone else. For the knowledge we've gained as a couple over the past year to benefit someone else like it has our family.
I faced my fears. I was proud of myself. I chose to live and not stay in my bubble. I want to choose living everyday.
Psalm 56:3 When I am afraid, I put my trust in You.
