As I was driving home last night, this topic was really weighing on my heart and mind and I felt I needed to share. Yesterday was a good day. No, yesterday was a great day. Texas CattleWomen had an informational session in Decatur and the best possible outcome happened that could have, we got a new local started. How can all these great things be happening but yet it feels as if I am not doing enough or the results that I am getting are not good enough.
Over the past couple of weeks, I have really noticed how much and how bad negative thoughts can affect someone. Trust me, I get them all the time and normally always assume the worst. Why, why do we do that? I can work my tail off at something and nail it and get told that what I did was great and yet I am still so unsure. It is crazy how the mind works, why some people feel certain ways and others can’t. How self-confidence can make or break you. How it can be so hard to genuinely accept that – Hey! You are doing a dang good job!
Just know that You are enough! When you get that compliment, say thank you and enjoy it. Relish in it and give yourself a pat on the back. Believe in yourself as much as other people do – this is HUGE, something I struggle with a lot. It is okay to have bad days, everyone has bad days, but get up, dust yourself off and make tomorrow better. No one is perfect, no one. Smile, you never know who is watching or wanting to be just like you.
Find things that make you happy and do them. Learn to be you and don’t let anyone take that away from you. And sometimes you just need a three-hour jam session of some Jesus music. This next week I challenge you to do something out of the norm, whether that be saying hello to someone on the street, trying some new food, or even picking up a new hobby. Have an amazing week and as always share some love, we could all use some more love.
