I can’t stop thinking of the way my husband challenged me to look at my life yesterday. I am grateful he loves me enough to throw the truth in my face when I need it!! He made me so upset yet called me out because I have been hiding in fear. The opportunities I have had, the things I have said I desired and yet the choices I have made that weren’t always congruent. Life is too short to regret the past and wish to shut the door on it. It is about time that I decide to be who I am!!! Ana Schweer de Ruiz!! I am daughter of the Most High, loved and cherished. I am saved by grace! I am redeemed!! I am one who once sought success and significance for my own selfish desires but now want to achieve WITH others at my sides!! I want to help make more leaders who want the same!! I want to help change the world for the better. I want to help people see how their lives matter. I want them to step forward in to the plans God has for them! I want to help the dairy industry grow stronger leaders and deep lasting values that will make us transparent for the public eye. I was once headed into veterinary school with my head as big as Texas full of pride because I was all about me on the inside. Now I desire to be a leader who calls out greatness in her fellow colleagues and clients and not one who crowds the room with her pride and ego. I will be one strong enough to do the right things at the right time for the benefit of human and animal health. I will not let money rule my heart but rather my heart will be ruled by the things that break it to drive me forward. Both humans and animals…the orphans, the young, the widows, the lonely, the lost, sick and tired…the outcast the overlooked. I pray that God would use me as a mighty tool to bring others closer to Him, that they would love the Lord their God with all their heart, soul, and mind. That I can be a wife and mother who places her family above all else on earth. That I can be a friend who truly loves and cares. That I can be the hands and feet of Jesus to all those that I am blessed enough to serve. No matter where the road leads me may I always remember who I have been, what God has done in my heart and life and who He is calling me to be!!
