Tim Tebow and Me

What’s not to love about Denver Broncos starting quarterback, Tim Tebow? In case you’ve been out of the country for the past 6 years, Tim is the stuff legends are made of. He is only 24 years old, yet has managed to prove himself time and again as a special young man! He played quality baseball and football growing up in the south and led several youth division teams to national play offs, including his high school teams. He was recruited to play football by several division 1 college football teams and chose the University of Florida as the college of his choice. He led the Florida Gators to several national championships and won the coveted Heisman Trophy in his sophomore year. Upon graduating with honors, in spite of being diagnosed with dyslexia, from the University of Florida, he was drafted by the Denver Broncos. He spent much of his first season last year learning the plays and strategies of the NFL. This year, he became the starting quarterback for the Broncos and has led his team to 6 victories in a row. Tim is a quality person on and off the field! He is a leader, has a heart for service, gives credit for his talent to his “Lord and Savior Jesus Christ,” is a team player and works incredibly hard. He is willing to learn and do whatever it takes to win! His hard work ethic inspires his teammates to also give 110% , and his determination and drive to win makes him a tremendous competitor. So what’s the problem?? The problem is the football analysts and commentators. I have yet to hear one of them give credit to Tim for his role in leading the Broncos to their winning record today.  Time and time again, week in and week out, Tim does whatever it takes to get his team to win and he does it! It may not be pretty and it is apparently unconventional, but winning they are! His teammates have confidence in him and more importantly perhaps, he has given them the confidence to believe in themselves. Yet not one football analyst will commit to the Broncos or Tim Tebow being able to go the distance to maybe, just maybe, win their division. Why? Because the way Tim quarterbacks his team is different. They aren’t used to seeing football played that way. I see tremendous parallels between the “experts” opinion of Tim, and doctors views on natural hormone therapy.” Let’s not think outside the box! Let’s not validate or give credibility to something out there that might also work, but because it is different it can’t be right.” What’s my favorite saying? “Condemnation Without Investigation is the Height of Arrogance!” This applies to other areas  as well. Whenever I look at the football games wins and losses on Sunday evenings, and listen to the sports announcers’ analysis and opinions of the games and players that day, they inevitably argue about Tim Tebow and his ability to lead this football team to victory. Yet week in and week out he manages to do just that. Why can’t we just give credit where credit is due and recognize a quality player, and winner, when we see one? Why does he have to fit the same mold as everyone else? If he is doing what it takes to win, and the team is winning, can we maybe open our minds to embrace something a little different?
When the women who come to us to get tested and treated and then they get better; and we see this again and again, can we begin to think outside the box of traditional drug therapy, and consider that maybe something beside drug therapy can work in women’s health today? Can our health care practitioners open their minds enough to begin to listen, hear and validate what their patients are saying about natural hormone therapy? Can they stand up to their peers with limited tools in their toolbox and begin to explore other more natural options that women are choosing to make them feel better for the first time maybe ever? I don’t know about you, but I am not going to bet against Tim Tebow and the Denver Broncos. I’ve seen exactly what happens when we open our minds to embrace the possibilities. Intentions create their own opportunities. Tim Tebow and I intend to continue to embrace the possibilities because when we know better, we do better!

Warmly,
