What’s worth it? What’s worth making a sacrifice for? Is it money; a nice home; private school for your kids? What about your health? Getting healthy and staying healthy does not happen by accident. It is costly. It costs time to get up early and work out. It costs money to join a gym. It costs time to make a shopping list and stick to it. It takes effort to cook healthy meals. But is all this work really worth it? You have to decide. For me, it’s worth it. Even though it is painful and difficult, I continue to teach exercise classes even with rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. I have to. It’s worth it to me to stay strong enough to help care for my grandkids. It’s worth it to me to be okay by myself while Rob is away traveling. It’s worth it to me to be strong and healthy enough to do the traveling my job as National Director requires because you are worth it. I have a lot of work to do; I have a lot of living to do! The older I get, the more I realize it is worth it.
What is worth it to you? You may need some help in deciding. Sometimes we just need a little encouragement; a little education; a little inspiration to decide that one more day of doing the right thing is worth it. That’s our goal at Worth It — Summit 2019 – helping you remember it is worth it! It will be worth it for you to spend the time and resources to attend our Summit 2019 in Houston – TOTALLY WORTH IT. And you ARE worth it, He said so, “for God so loved (your name) that He gave His one and only son that whosoever (that’s me!) believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life”. John 3:16 (NIV).
