I saw this posted on a friend’s Facebook today. We should all be about making each other shine!
Fix someone’s crown today.
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.
Believing in the little things today.
This year Carmen, David and I chose one word for our daily motivation if you will.
Mine is to be Fierce. David is to be Daring. And when speaking with Carmen yesterday she couldn’t remember hers. Really? David and I have been taking ours to heart. Telling each other to be daring or to be fierce. To approach the day or the task with our word at our forefront.
I have often thought of Fierce as a negative, but really have come to realize what a strong, vibrant word it can be. It is exciting, and truly gets me going for the day. I get encouraged by telling David to be daring! To tackle the day only in the way he can.
Have you chosen a word for 2018? How do you incorporate it into your daily life?Apparently, these word things are a pretty big deal, and someone had the bright idea to make some money off of them. I got David and my words done for our key chains (with Lupus ribbons on mine). Cool idea, and neat thoughts if you want to look at their site myintent.org.
What word would you use:
Whatever the word is…encourage one another!

I will try to use one of these in each of my following blog posts although I cannot guarantee use of any of these! ha.
