Promised I’d share both the good and the bad in this blog.
It’s not easy to share bad news . . . especially when I’m not sharing the news for attention seeking reasons. I’m sharing good and bad because I want my blog to reflect real life. It’s not all sunshine and lollipops. We’re all going through it.
So . . . I entered a contest where you share a video about yourself. Of course, I took it very seriously and made a video that I was quite proud of. The odds in the contest seemed good too so I felt optimistic that I’d win something.
And I didn’t.
A little surprised on how hard I’m taking it. I guess I was invested in winning more than I knew.
When you put yourself out there . . . when you take time to plant those little “seeds” you also risk the disappointment of having nothing happen. Not all seeds grow into anything.
But . . .
I am happy and proud that I planted that seed – even though it didn’t “grow” for me.
I learned something from this experience.
I took a risk.
I put my heart into it.
All things to be proud of.
There will be many “seeds” in my journey, I have to think of the big picture. And in the big picture I am very excited because there is a lot of good happening around me. I have a lot to be thankful and happy for.
Nothing wrong with taking a few minutes to mourn something I cared about.
And . . . moving on.
