so its been an interesting week so far. At least at work anyways.
Wednesday I had part 2 of my Breakthrough Leadership class. more like group therapy session. but I have learned a few things about myself in the past 2 classes.
1. I am STUPID! Ever since I was little, I have always been afraid that people will think I am stupid. So when in a group of people, I tend to stay back, keep my opinions to myself, and try to stay under the radar. Deathly afraid of putting my foot in my mouth. Now all I need to do is to let myself be stupid and be ok with it. Not something that I can do overnight, but at least I recognize this issue
2. The reason why my Father did not attend any of my soccer games while I was growing up was not because he didnt love me.

2. The reason why my Father did not attend any of my soccer games while I was growing up was not because he didnt love me. <side note: he went out of his way to attend all of my sisters' games and events. never made it to any of my games> When I was a year old, the doctor told my parents that I would have a hard time walking and that I would never be able to run. It was difficult for my Dad to watch me on the soccer field, because he was afraid my knees would give out and I would never be able to walk.
3. Expectation leads to Disappointment

Other than that, work has been non-eventful. except for the last minute projects, the managers who believe that we need to treat the RSAs with kid-gloves. Heaven-forbid, we treat them like adults.

So glad today is Friday! heading home from work in a little while. take the cat back to the vet for more bloodwork (vet thinks he is diabetic, eat dinner, smoke a cigar or two and just relax. enjoy my weekend, unwind and just have a good time with Dad!

Not all expectations lead to disappointment, though I must admit that we always seem to focus on the disappoinments before the rewards


btw, hope to see you and the dad at the eagle sometime
