Tell It…

One of my clients was reluctant to share the details of the childhood trauma that stunted her personal and professional growth in a speech.

So I reminded her that her truth could be inspirational to an audience … and that it’s only in the telling that a test can become a testimony.

“Anyone who meets a testing challenge head-on and manages to stick it out is mighty fortunate. For such persons loyally in love with God, the reward is life and more life.” James 1:12 MSG

Inhale Test, Exhale Stuck…
Inhale Truth, Exhale Shame…
Inhale Testimony, Exhale Silence…

Intense Focus

I ended 2017 with a series of what I’ll refer to as annoyances … stuck in ATL during the infamous power outage (which required a lot of rescheduling), experiencing plumbing issues in my new place, and finding out what I thought was a flat tire was in fact a cracked wheel which I discovered during the coldest day of the coldest week of the year.

Not enough to stop me but just enough to divert me from what I needed to be doing and sufficiently time consuming to slow me down.

I had to consciously and intentionally wrest my thoughts from drifting into “why me” and focus on “what is my life trying to tell me now.” I got “be still.” And so I got still.

“Worry never robs tomorrow of its sorrow, it only saps today of its joy.” ~ Leo Buscaglia
