Finding Confidence in Disappointment
I found out this evening that I wasn’t chosen to be published in an upcoming Bible for moms.
All day, I was doing that “Oh, I’m probably not going to win.” while deep inside thinking “of course I’m going to win.” Because, honestly, I thought my piece was better than the other one.
And this, my friends, is a very important statement for me to make, because there have been few times that I have voiced confidence in myself despite someone else telling me otherwise. I am so reliant on other people to tell me whether what I’ve done/thought/said is good or bad. But not today.
So, I lost. I’m disappointed. I feel discouraged. But, at least I can say, “I think I wrote well.”
