Do you ever have those days where nothing -- nothing -- can bring you down?
Today was one of those days.
I woke up to a morning of cool weather. It hasn't been in the 60s since about March, and you better believe I was excited. If only I had had some warm chai latte to sip while sitting on my porch, my day would have started out that much better.
Perhaps tomorrow. Sigh.
My boss called in sick. I was a powerhouse with my to-do list. My normally frizzy hair was behaving itself perfectly. My brand new computer is finally working superbly -- and it's by far the fastest thing I have ever used in my life. I got to get away from the office to run a few errands. And and and! On my way to run errands, I passed a place that would have normally reminded me of him. And I didn't even think of the connection until I got back to the office.
That's when I know. That's when I know it's official. I'm over it.
After work, I was scheduled to present to one of the student organizations at the local university. Trudging over to the campus, I finally found the building where I was supposed to meet everyone. I found the room and walked in.
And it was packed, people! I bet there were 50 or 60 people in there! I was speaking about how to put together a PR portfolio; not about a missions trip to China for crying out loud! Who the heck wants to listen about portfolios?!
I was really nervous when I got started. But after a while, I got into it, and it was actually pretty loose. They were hanging on my every word. Taking notes. Asking a million great questions. Being attentive.
Afterwards, one of two of the officers said "You were the best speaker we've ever had." The advisor even told me this, too. Sheesh. Talk about driving home on cloud nine. I had no idea that my presentation would even be helpful, let alone the best speaker they've ever had. Geez.
To top it all off, I came home to find a package on my front doorstep.
I had visited yet another church last week, and they came by to drop off cookies for me! They're homemade, too!
But the best part of the day? As I was filling out my calendar at work, I realized that I am becoming more involved in so many new and exciting things than ever before. I'm delving into things that I never would have gotten into had I still been attached.
Prioritizing my life to focus around God and making new friends is something that I am more than excited about.
But oh no no. Don't you worry. I'll still have room for a date or two every now and then.
In fact? There's a certain someone that I just can't help but stop thinking about...
