I want to share something with you that has been heavy on my heart.
I came into this job completely being myself, because in the past I have been afraid to do just that. I died my hair red, which I absolutely love by the way, and I am not afraid to take out my morning devotional at my desk and read it before the day starts. I am friendly, I smile at everyone and I try and help anyone I can. Now, I am not saying I am a saint. There are days when I would rather be on the beach with a fruity drink with an umbrella or in my bed under the warm covers. Inside, I may not always have a good attitude, but I strive to show I do on the outside.
Now I have to be honest...none of this has been easy for me. I still shy away from a lot of people and I'm having a difficult time relating to some people at work. I don't know if it's because this is my first time out in the "real world", away from all of my college friends, or if I am just trying to find out who I am in this world of pressure and striving to live up to the expectations of today's world. Joyce Meyer says, "God wants us to fit into His plan, not to feel pressured trying to fit into everyone else's plan." I just continue to pray that I remain true to myself and accept my limitations without feeling the pressure of comparing or competing with others.
"Secure people who know God loves them and has a plan for them are not threatened by the abilities of others." Joyce Meyer
Hope you all have a wonderful day and take this scripture to heart just as much as I did and to not be afraid of being your own unique, beautiful self God made you to be.
Until next time,
