Day 143 - Pressing Forward
I didn’t want to go.
I had a work-related networking meeting today, and I just didn’t feel like going. I was thinking it would probably be a waste of time anyway, and I wasn’t into it. I would rather go to the gym and work out my stress there. I was feeling discouraged and frustrated, and couldn’t see how this meeting could possibly benefit me.
A dear friend told me I should go. I need to go. I’m so glad I listened. Here was another moment when, as I spoke to people about employee engagement, I remembered that this is what I love to do. This is who I am supposed to be. I was SO glad I went, and grateful to my friend for encouraging me to press on.
And I might get some work from it - I am having coffee with one of the other attendees in a few days. At least I’ll make a new friend.
