I’m currently sitting in the waiting area of the CVS MinuteClinic. Ready to get my travel immunizations, finally!!
I have a break in the middle of the day today that I don’t typically have. I brought my computer and camera to work on tonight’s print but the coffee shop I pulled into just happens to share a parking lot with CVS. I was like, “Crap. Go do it.” So here I am! I’m next in line so hopefully it won’t take too long!
I am a little nervous, I never even get a flu shot. I just hope there aren’t any side effects to anything I’m getting. Gotta run long on Friday, after all! Priorities. 😝
I was searching Pinterest for some good quotes and I really liked this one. I know a lot of people who attack things in their life with a passion that is partially fueled by their desire to prove someone wrong. “He said I couldn’t do it.” “My Doctor said I wouldn’t be able to do it.” “Those girls call me crazy.”
Proving people wrong is awesome, whatever motivates you!
I find a little bitterness in those words though, action fueled by anger and resentment. Probably to a fault, I’m the kind of person that thinks I can do anything because I know I’ll work hard and never give up. So if it’s something I really care about, like learning calligraphy and starting my own business, then I know I can do it! I know I will put in the time and energy and effort. Only a few people scoffed at me, but I like to think it’s more because it was out of left field, not because they didn’t believe I could do it.
When you quietly put in the work and never give up, you’ll accomplish your goal. Whatever “it” is. I know you will. The time will pass anyways, put the time to the best possible use.
And the truth of the matter is, that person you’re trying to prove wrong…they are watching and they are inspired and ready to try it for themselves. Because of you. ❤️
Hope you had a great day, thanks so much for reading!
