All of your prayers paid off because I PASSED!! Thank God. When the lady pulled up my results on the screen and said “Congratulations,” I wanted to scream for joy. Only thing that stopped me was the fact that there was someone else still in the room taking her exam. I took the paper and ran outside and started shouting. That was just a good feeling. I drove to the testing center listening to an inspirational CD that I had made. Just listening to God’s promises over my life gave me the strength and confidence that I needed to get the job done.
I just got back home from taking the practical portion of the exam. I have to wait 7-10 business days for those results. I am claiming that I passed that one as well. This is the plan that God has for me and those are plans to succeed! I will be looking forward to receiving my license here shortly and moving forward with the rest of my endeavors.
Also, I want to thank you all for taking out the time to watch my first video blog [vlog]! There are more to come. Your comments were well appreciated. One in particular, the commenter said: never..ever point out your flaws..you were in the middle of a perfectly good thought and then you said “excuse the rolls” when I couldn’t even see them in the first place. Wow! That said a LOT. That is the same comment my mother made after she watched it.
Why is it that we are so critical of ourselves? In my head, I thought everyone could see the rolls so I went ahead and pointed them out before anyone could think it. I didn’t think about the awkward position that I was in that caused my side to appear “rollish.” Reading someone’s (who doesn’t even know me) thoughts on my self sabotage, if you will, and my mother’s really put things in perspective for me. I still have few miles to conquer with my self-esteem.
True, I am NO where near where I used to be in that arena, but I still have a mountain or two to climb. So I feel that it was good for me to post the vlog in order to see myself in a light that I might not have seen.
I appreciate each and every one of you!! Hugs and all that other good stuff…
