Strive to Be Someone of Value, Not Someone of Success

December 1982...that’s the first time I remember seeing rows of glossy magazines in the stands.

It was at the airport- it was the day we were moving to America and I was 5.

Those figures seemed too plastic and distant - they didn’t have anything in common with me or my family. We really struggled for those first few years but honestly, what gifts life struggles teach you, right?

Through the years I became acutely aware of the quote “strive to be someone of value not someone of success”. I think we all have value to offer to the world, don’t be afraid to share it. Once you help people get healthy or successful or just happy - that’s creating value. 

So no matter if you’re old short poor female fat tall black white Indian Chinese Hispanic ...you are valuable - share it.

They also referenced my Roasted Cauliflower Soup recipe - get the full recipe here :)

I came upon your wellness page and you sound like you’re an amazing person. I just recently got diagnosed with type two diabetes and I’m pretty sure that I’m suffering from some sort of RH arthritis Or osteoporosis arthritis. Keep up the good work thanks
