Do you ever have those times (or days....or weeks....maybe even months) where that dictator called your mind feeds you constant negativity? It's as if your mind makes you believe everything in your life is atrocious. But then -- then God sends you those little affirmations in the form of a person. He sends them to you as a way of saying, "Hey, keep your head held high -- you're doing great." Here's a little story for you:
The red in my hair has gone away completely.
"Your hair looks REALLY red today!"
Well those Crest Whitening strips didn't work.
"Have you been whitening your teeth? They look really white!"
I suck being this role.
"You are doing fantastic as Frenchy -- I am extremely impressed."
My photos really aren't that great.
"I want to be a photographer when I'm older.....actually, it's because of you that I want to be one."
I look like a zombie.
"You look beautiful today."
Great. My hair is back to being frizzy.
"Ok, your hair looks gorgeous. It looks so healthy!"
All I can say is -- thank you. Thank you God for sending me those affirmations. Thank you, affirmations.
