Lenten affirmation, day 34

i love people. Yes, I’m an introvert and interactions drain me, but I love people so much! I love hearing their stories. I love being able to help them. I love when they hear and help me. I love the ways that we find commonality with each other. I love our diversity. I think much of what makes me good at what I do comes from a genuine love of humanity and I affirm that in myself.

Today I am thankful for company on door knocking days, team meetings, and brainstorming sessions. I am grateful for youth who want to empower other youth to make their voices heard. I’m thankful for audiobooks and introverted booksellers. I’m thankful for neighbors of all kinds. I’m thankful for seventy degree days. I’m thankful for slow runs because they are better than not running at all. I’m thankful that the panic attacks of last week feel like a distant memory.
