Just a few microbraveries from the past few days.
- When I felt pressured to agree to a meeting time that would make a colleague happy and me stressed, I said I couldn’t meet until later.
- After someone volunteered me for something I didn’t want to do, I made it clear that I wouldn’t do it. And I pointed out that I don’t want this kind of thing to happen again. Probably didn’t make much of a dent. This guy lives in his own little universe, but at least I made myself heard.
- While waiting for an appointment today, I asked to sit in a more comfortable spot than where I was initially ushered.
- I was trained to be a Meals on Wheels driver yesterday. I’ll write more about that after I do my first solo run. I am VERY excited about this.
You’d think that after four and a half months of trying new things and speaking up a bit more that these little things wouldn’t make me uncomfortable. And you’d be right. Speaking up about what I want and standing up for myself come much more naturally to me now. Which was the whole point, really.
I still have room to improve and a long list of new things I’d like to try. What I haven’t had lately is lots of time. But I’m working on it.
Because I feel like it, here is a video I think is funny.
