Remember last week when I said I was going to spend the remainder of the week trying to discover myself? Okay, so I admitted by the end of last week, that I must be at least in leadership 201 and I feel as though by doing this a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders. I have found that lots of people are calling me a leader and I guess I just never wanted to own up to it. Why? I’m afraid of failure for one. The rest, well, I’m not really sure; I guess I just never thought of myself as a leader. I hate taking charge and making everyone else do work or keep everyone on task, etc.
So I discovered today at work that I just naturally do things and don’t question them. I do what needs to be done and help others to succeed by providing support and encouragement. I also will begin things and lead by example. I never realized this makes me a leader. I guess lately I’ve been answering a question that I forget where and when I first heard it: “If not you, who?”
At any rate, it’s taken me a while to admit I’m at least a leader in training. Now that I’ve admitted that, I did find an interesting turn of events (and I hope it’s not a fluke). My blood sugar/glucose was happy this morning at 101 mg/dl. This in turn made me happy! 😀 Today’s been a happy day! 😀
I also received a package I’ve been waiting for; it contains a present for someone for Christmas this year and I cannot wait to see the look on that person’s face when they unwrap it on Christmas morning! 🙂
Well, guess I’ll sign off for now as I have a lot left to do before bed tonight. I’ll report in again on Wednesday (the day after my dentist appointment ).
Love and prayers!
