So this happened today...
It's been a crappy day. Really crappy.
Except for the parts that were amazing.
I always tell people that I'm afraid of heights and afraid of the dark and afraid of everything. I bill myself most days as a chicken. I always think that I'm more nice than I am resilient or strong or hard working. And before today, that might have been a little bit true.
But do you know what I realized just a few minutes ago? I'm different today than I was a month ago or a year ago or ten years ago. I've done hard things before. I do them all the time. And in the past week, I've crossed crazy long bridges...over water, trespassed in abandoned buildings, and slid down a dang waterslide!
After I did it, McKay said, "I love that you're so adventurous!"
...and that makes amazing beat out crappy for the day.
