“For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.” Jeremiah 29:11
It honestly takes so little to get me excited but that excitement is usually very short lived. I am the person that constantly second guesses myself. Even though I know I am more than capable of most of the things I accomplish; sometimes it just seems too good to be true. Just as an example, this past week I received an email inviting me to join an honors society based on my GPA first semester. I was so excited at first and could not wait to tell my family and to accept the invitation. However, I had spent so much time beating myself up over the B’s (Yes B’s) that I made last semester that I second guessed if I deserved to be excited over this opportunity. This happens way too often for me, thoughts like: “Was that really for me?”, “Did they pick the right person?”, “Did they overlook something?” take over. Those questions snatch my excitement almost quicker than it came. It is so! so! so! important to have confidence in yourself and your abilities because you deserve everything you have actually been working for. “What God has for me is for me” and I of all people need to learn to accept that. So grab the accomplishment and celebrate yourself a little!
