The contest for the Atkins All-Star ends today....It's silly, I found myself refreshing the vote page over and over....Just HOPING that this would be a slam dunk. That I would have thousands of people voting and I would sail across the finish line--Trophy in hand....
My husband is competing in a contest too.
He....RIGHT NOW is a half a world away, taking part in THE WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP of PUBLIC SPEAKING....
And...From him I have learned a very valuable lesson. (I listen honey...Even when you think I don't)
Is it THE "TROPHY" that matters? Or is it the message that is being delivered?
My story has many UPS and DOWNS. It has kinks and bumps(literally) And I am far FAR from perfect. But this "voting process"...and the messages and comments I have received from the people voting for me has been so eye opening.
So what if I don't win the ULTIMATE GRAND PRIZE.....!? Sure donating to CTF would be AWESOME....But I know that I put myself out there...Did the very best I could...And I have shown people that taking back control is possible...EVEN when the odds are stacked against you.
This journey has shown me that my story has touched people....And IF I don't win this contest....I am NOT DONE making my mark on this world!
