A Little Pat on the Back

Share |
Here are some of the things I've done well recently:

I convinced a man to buy my old Honda, even though it had a little smoke coming out of the hood, a bit of rust on the side, and the air conditioner was making a considerable amount of noise. And man oh man, did I need the money!

I successfully drove my daughter to a sitter's house in the pouring rain as my 1986 stick shift Volvo was acting up in a bad way. Then I drove to work, back to the sitters to pick up my daughter, and made it all the way home in a failing car, in the heavy rain.

Even though I'm not technically savvy, I'm grasping the concepts taught in my Final Cut Pro Video Editing class and taking some very meticulous notes. (I also have to say that I have a great teacher.)

I drew two attractive sketches -- one of a penguin and one of a butterfly and some flowers.

I reminded my daughter of the many things that she does well, as she seemed to dwell a bit on some things she doesn't think she does well. (I frequently tell her how proud I am of her. She's a brave and smart little cookie.)


I'll stop here....

Although deceptively simplistic, this little exercise can have far-reaching results. I applaud you for posting this!

Shondell,
You're very right. I felt the impact of it as I was writing the words on paper. I can see you've got some background in this type of thing. (wink, wink)
I'm getting some good guidance as you can see.
Thanks for your support!
Peace and blessings,
Alicia
