WHAT AM I THANKFUL FOR?
God has brought me a long way from where I used to be. Today showed me that. A year or 2 ago, I would’ve been reduced to tears after the interaction I had today. But God! I made up my mind not to be bitter and to enjoy what I have. But here’s what went down:
Oh the irony. As I’m packing my bag to leave work this happened…
Her: you ready for Mother’s Day?
Me: No, I don’t celebrate Mother’s Day.
Her: Oh. It’s Mother’s Day for you every day, huh?
Me: No. My mom is gone and I don’t have kids.
Her: I can understand. It’s crazy out here now. You don’t want any kids?
Me: Well…I did. But not so much any more.
Her: ***says something else*** as I escape.
Me: Have a good night.
I had called myself escaping Mother’s Day this year. I specifically made a plan to lay low. I’m taking a little getaway for a few days. Apparently the universe wants to remind me I can never escape it, even if I try. It did make me laugh though. Previously I would’ve been upset.
WHAT DID I ENJOY TODAY?
I pulled together a Mother’s Day gift for a client-friend. She’s likes my body butter. When somebody likes your stuff, you make sure they can have it ☺️.
HOW DO I FEEL EMOTIONALLY?
Considering the lady at work didn’t throw me off my square, I feel pretty good. It was slightly emotional, but I’m proud of myself that I didn’t cry or get mad. It felt good to be able to laugh at the irony of it all.
HOW DO I FEEL PHYSICALLY?
Today was a good day for my tummy. 🙌🏾
HOW DID I WORK ON MY MONEY GOALS?
I processed a client order. Always working. I’d rather work hard now so I can reap the benefit later.
