Today I am grateful for THIS COMPLIMENT:
"Katie, you are a very poised person."
(Poised, noun: having poise; marked by balance or equilibrium; marked by easy composure of manner or bearing)
Thank you, Mallory, for that lovely compliment. Possibly the sweetest thing anyone has ever said to me. Half of the time I feel like I am anything but balanced or in equilibrium, so it was a very welcomed and much needed reminder that, just maybe, I'm doing something right.
Your kind words truly brightened my day.
And it has given me the strength now to face these last two weeks of the semester with confidence and determination.
