I received this text message from a person I have been working with on learning the power of transparency. I wanted to share it in it’s entirety.

“Oh Dan!!! You are RIGHT!!!!!!! When I am just me, transparent me, God uses that. No matter the situation. I presented at a new teacher workshop sunday and at the end broke down emotionally and shared that I was really struggling about going back to school and that I wanted to tell them to remember to focus on why we so what we do and i shared what happened thurs with a former student. She was supposed to come for dinner. Cancelled via text asking me to pray for her family. Said her older brother was just killed in an accident. I shared what an honor it was to help her through that.  After I presented, I had to really get thru some negative self talk in my mind and finally was ok with things. Anyway, Just today I went back my room and this woman stopped me, said I was hoping to bump into you said you were so great at that workshop I needed to hear that. She said seeing you cry and remind us that its not always pleasant and good, but to remember its about the students we reach was what I needed to hear. She shared her struggles and her stories and it was amazing Dan. So amazing.” ”  Thanks for your help”

I love re reading this text message. It amazes me how simple things get in the way of being who we really are!
