I lost a follower today.
Would that upset you?
I’m really enjoying blogging and want to build my “followers” and since I’m in my infancy of blogging I obviously check my stats daily! And, so, I noticed today I went from 220 to 219. Crushed.
I’ve been disappointed in life many, many times. My parents have disappointed me, my brothers have disappointed me, my friends, boyfriends, myself…. you get it.
However, through disappointment I always learn more about myself.
I’m stronger than I give myself credit for.
My worst day as a human being should have been the best day of my life. It was the day I failed to execute my birth plan. My heart hurt so bad. I wanted the perfect natural birth. I planned and studied the perfect natural birth. It didn’t happen; not even close.
So, this is what I’ve leaned. Prepare for the worst set yourself up for disappointment. If the best happens, you’ll be pleasantly surprised. It’s not glass half-empty as much as it’s protecting your “self” and your image of yourself.
Know this, you’re stronger than you think. You have powers beyond your belief. Find your strength and push your limits.
It’s the small things. Here’s mine.
