Again for y’all up in the cheap seats: WOOOSAH!
This is my first in real time posting EVER because the testing is real today. Jesus knows that I’m trying to be extremely mindful of situations that try to knock me off my path to being happy, but the speed with which they’re coming at me today is just ridiculous. I had to take maybe 20 minutes to pray and hype myself up again for my day.
I work with people and I know that’s my first issue, but instead of questioning why I work in customer service I’m taking the Fran way of asking what this is teaching me. I’m going with patience. I’m not the most patient person, but I AM TRYING and I’m sick of the judgment. I’m aware of my deficiencies in this area and try to exercise the ability to be patient quite often. I got shook down TUH-DAY.
An individual took me there and I served all the lack of care, concern, and passion I could muster. Honestly, it could’ve been worse but I tried to flip it. I failed, but I tried. I got talked to about it. I realized that I messed up and swore not to beat myself up over it and to just do better for the rest of the day. I needed to share this with y’all so I don’t continue to harbor my disappointment in myself. I had to release this failure out into the universe as encouragement to move on and be better.
Before I go to bed and when I wake up in the morning, I do the following: I thank God and I hype myself up with a simple mantra.
I am strong. I am smart. I have an abundance of patience. I lead with love. I can do anything because I serve a God that can do everything. I’ve got this because God’s got me.
That’s it. I prayed that God would redirect me whenever I feel like I’m skirting off my path and I repeated my mantra. The rest of the day is going to be amazing. I’m getting some self care by listening to Gettin’ Grown while I eat lunch and type this. I’m good, y’all.
