Coffee and Truth
I shared some insight with someone over a latte this morning that I think needed to hear that work can’t be EVERYTHING. I’m not sure it sunk in…but I did my part.
The end of this era is culminating in the return of my sense of humor. Thank you Jesus! There has been so much laughter over these past few days and I can feel my insides begin to unravel from their tightly wound up ways.
Beer and Truth
Tonight I was invited out with another team for drinks. A new person on that team…more specifically a new woman…was trying to assert herself as the alpha at the table. Let me just stop and say that trying to assert your alpha-ness at a table full of alphas is always a losing proposition. When she corrected me while I was telling a story I stopped her and said “I don’t need your correction. You need to stop right there and back up a bit.” Awkward! Let’s just say…while I was not trying to be the alpha…that girl was later saying “I’m SO glad you came out with us tonight” and “I’m so glad I got to meet you before you leave.” Hush now little puppy. 😉 Mostly I’m just grateful for the ability to stop the turn of a conversation when I feel attacked. I haven’t always been able to do that and now I can.
