"You have to let go off something, to get something better" also expressed as 'Give up to go Up'.

I have just given up the serving of food at our food pantry, got 4 community residents who have always come to collect to take ownership of the project. Quite a risk that involves 'outsiders' into Church Kitchen and Store. It was as if they have been waiting to be asked. People who have been coming for free food bags before are now actually contributing towards making the project bigger and better.

Now, I have more time to be more of Mary than Martha, and I am loving it. More time to dream more, hear more and more humane. And the project looks like it is on its way to betterment.

Risk Takers get worthwhile results. If the attempts fall through, make the events your learning experience, and keep on keeping on. Quiters don't win, and winners don't quit. Take risks, then take more risks.
