I'm not proud of myself lately.
There's introspective and thoughtful and working through things - and then there's debbie downer. I've been hanging out with debbie a little too much lately. I could be in a funk but I'm not. It's much more basic that that. I am not appreciating me, my people, or my accomplishments.
There's a difference between learning, contributing, or shaking things up in the spirit of growth and learning, contributing, or shaking things up to be successful, to be recognized, or to be happy. The first is invigorating, the second is ungratifying, and both are only a matter of perspective.
I know this. It's not new to me. I just forget sometimes.
