Jan. 16th 2018: Today was one of those interesting days.. I will explain why. Most of the Day was wonderful, class was good and fun. I got my design Thinking group today and oh man I am just excited to help them through this process again. And to think a year ago I was in their shoes. ♥️ also today’s Devotional was #incredible
! I loved it so much. Watch it if you can! The rest of the day was crazy. So busy. I felt bad because I missed an important meeting... thankfully I have a good team and good friends who are understanding. I also got to celebrate one of my best friends birthdays today. It was a really good time. So like I said, it was a really good day. But there was one thought pestering me all day. Yesterday a guy approached my friend and asked why I am single, which for whatever reason is a hot topic recently. He listed off all these nice qualities, and that was flattering but the end of the message he basically said, “She must be single because something is wrong with her.” Sadly, this is not the first time I have come across this kind of response and I am sure it won’t be the last. Normally I just try to laugh it off, and move forward... but today it really got to me and has been festering in my mind all day. As it festered I could feel my #confidence
starting to deflate. Am I not good enough? Is there something wrong with me? These are questions that have haunted me more #fiercely
nowadays. No one should have to wonder this. This made me think of the way I look at people, am I looking at the good within them and building them up or allowing my shallow minded thoughts to invade my perception of them? I would much rather be a builder. I am going to work on being a builder.
1. Good friends that I can talk to
2. Today’s devotional
3. Getting a morning text from a coworker telling me to have a good day.
