Lots going on in our life right now…between kid stuff, schedules, learning all sorts of new things for work and trying to get a meal on the table the at least 3 out of 5 might want to eat…we could say that life is exhausting at times.
On Sunday, I was thinking about what I might talk about on-air and what words I could write about that would be meaningful and provide a positive impact to someone in some way.
I was coming up blank. I was starting to doubt my ability and all sorts of negative talk was going on in my head. “I shouldn’t have this job.” “I am failing.” “You have no clue what you are doing.”
No one at work has told me that…fyi. I do have a lot to learn and I am pretty sure that will never stop in the work that I am doing now. I am ok with that too…because I know this world isn’t going to pause in how social media works, marketing or how we are engaging and measuring that with the end user. I can talk a lot of marketing gibberish and now I am not just my own voice, there are others around me that also understand this. It is amazing, actually. Yet…I let doubt start to take over.
Because Instagram is part of my world and connecting with others, I have added some followers that I didn’t have just 2 weeks ago. One of those is womeninradio. The picture they posted that I happened to see on Sunday helped shift that negative voice into a positive conversation with myself.

Ain’t that the truth!
Sometimes, all we need are the right words.
I survived Monday. I even survived Tuesday…and in fact, I was shown smiles and grace today by everyone that I met and encountered (besides the lady who was tailgating me on the way to work…you can read about that below)https://www.facebook.com/plugins/post.php?href=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.facebook.com%2Fy105fmROCH%2Fposts%2F10155267527994071&width=500
