I am Third

by Edward A. Patterson on April 9, 2011

What are your priorities and how do you best serve others?

If you’ve never read Gales Sayers autobiography, read it now! I promise you won’t regret it!!!

In it he states “God is first, others are second, I am third.”

The quote speaks of sacrifice… something that every woman I’ve ever spoken to can relate to. Every woman I’ve ever met has a whole cast that they put before themselves, and most believe in God.

You are third, and this puts you in a vulnerable position. But, you already know that.

You want to be strong in order to help others, and you believe you can do better.

I believe you! And I believe you can achieve whatever you set your mind towards.

But often, that also means letting go!

Letting go of old ideas… letting go of old habits… letting go of past hurts… letting go of things precious…

However, letting go also means embracing!!!

New ideas!
New habits!
New relationships!
New treasures!

This leads us to our question. How do you embrace new ideas… habits… relationships… treasures…?

The answer is…

Love Thyself!

Need I say more?
