There are some things that genuinely make me sad. The dissolving of a solid friendship when I put a ton of effort into something only to have it fail miserably. Sometimes though, it’s the difficult choices we need to make in life and doing things we might not want to do, but have to.

You might see a bit of contrast between this and my general viewpoint of engineering your life so that you don’t have to do the things you don’t want to, but some things are simply unavoidable.

This time it was delivering news I didn’t want to deliver.

At work, I got a promotion. It’s great and it’s exciting, but I feel that it put me in a very funny place. While I was referred over by a good friend of mine and am completely willing to put the work in to be successful—the position I’m currently holding is one I’ve only had for a few months. I’m blessed to have been offered this opportunity, but I really feel like the team and I were starting to make progress!
