You guys, this is what I look like right now:
But this is how I look as of Wednesday night.
I’m gonna keep it short and keep it real with you for a second.
I’m a happy person. I’m a positive person. I see things glass-half-full. But sometimes life happens and it’s okay to not put a cute outfit on and it’s okay to eat half a Digiorno pizza and drink about six Diet Cokes.
Tomorrow (well, you’re reading this on Thursday, so, well, today) I’m taking a HUGE exam for work. It’s called the CTS exam – Certified Technology Specialist – basically a certification for the AV industry. That was nerdy-tech speak you just witnessed. So, I’m studying. Have been and will be all night. I feel like I’m in college again, or something.
Anywho. I’m stressed about the test, but that’s okay. I’m going to study as much as I can, dress for success, and walk in that testing center with my head held high and all the confidence in the world. If I pass it, awesome. If I don’t, it’s not the end of the world.
And, on a separate, somewhat unrelated note: I just want to remind you to hold on to the people in your life whom you love and who helped to make you the person you are today.
A dear friend of my family passed away yesterday after a short, but brutal fight with cancer. Losing a family member or friend is hard. I know first hand.
The only comfort is knowing he’s at peace and he’s with the Lord.
I just ask that you just pray for his family – he leaves behind a wonderful wife and a wonderful grown son and daughter. And I ask that you cherish your loved ones, hang on to every moment, and tell them you love them every chance you get.
Life’s too short to not say I Love You every day.
Sorry for being the lame blogger, ‘debbie downer’, ‘malaise molly’ today. Posting heavy stuff isn’t typically my beat, but sometimes LIFE gets real and it’s cool to just be real every once in a while.
Don’t worry, I’ll be back to my regularly scheduled awkwardness and whatnot tomorrow.
all for now.
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” – Jeremiah 29:11
