Deflated

Yesterday afternoon I became deflated.  I am 95 percent of the time a happy, encouraging person.  I try to be that way with others, looking to the glass half full, to be positive.  God has a plan, and I work that plan.  I might not always agree with that plan, but I hang in there whatever the case might be.

And, I believe that He does have a plan.  I just feel flat.  That everything that I have worked for means nothing without a degree (work).  Of course, where I work is a state college, and that degree matters, and I so know that!  Don’t get me wrong.  It takes courage to say this –I am sad.

I have a technical degree from (an accredited school) thirty years ago that won’t transfer.  Again, that is okay.  My past brought me here, and I am thankful of my path for it has made me who I am.  But I am feeling worthless today.

I will be fine.  I will get through this.  There are much worse things out there, and we are fine!! I am not stating any of this for pity, or attention.  I am stating this for reality.  Because not everyday is bright and shiny.   I treasure every moment, and love my struggles (even algebra).  Oh, and I am still taking classes.  I will get that degree – it may take me a while – but I will get it.

So, no pity. Just needed to vent.  And this too shall pass.

shall pass

Thanks.

Flame

Yesterday, I posted a quote about being fearless in the pursuit of what sets your soul on fire.

Today – surround yourself with those that will fan that flame!

Fan your flames-Rumi

Do you think about who surrounds you?  Who encourages you?

Will Smith talked about this, and actually asked to look at your phone to see who the last five text messages were from?  Then, what did they say?  Did they support you and your dreams?  Do you like what you see?

Surround yourself with people that are there for you, and fan those flames!

Blessings.

Fire

soul on fire

Some precious friends are jumping into their future dreams this week (month) with their souls on fire!  One of them posted this on their Facebook page.  I had to steal it.  Excited for her, and I hope to continue to be an encouragement to her and her dream.

Who do you encourage?

Blessings.
