I’ve got to say, I am not a fan of this prompt. Maybe that’s because I had a great day, am one glass of wine in and only want to write about happy things. But I will try to think of something anyway!
I strive to not be that person. I have one good friend who will drop plans last minute if something better comes along, and another who is maybe too honest about just not wanting to meet up that night. I almost broke plans on a date I had with a guy about a year and a half ago. I’d had a long day at work and didn’t know if I was up to getting dressed nicely and trekking all the way downtown just to make small talk with someone I didn’t know.
Fortunately, I made the effort and I have been with him ever since.
I had forgotten this story until now, and I think it is a great reminder to go along with a Gabby Bernstein quote I saw this morning. It is always in your best interest to be true to yourself and your word, although it can be difficult. I struggle with that like everyone else.
So now I am thankful for this day twelve writing session. Good things come from unexpected places – you’d think I would know that by now.
