One thing you learned about yourself last year:
I'm a good leader! ☺ And I know this because my husband said so!
All my life, I feel that I have been a good follower - always the little sister who gets dragged along after her siblings, always the quiet girl who doesn't speak unless spoken to, always the introvert friend who enjoys cancelled get-togethers if it involves extrovert people or meeting with more than one person at a time.
I used to think of this trait as weakness as dictated by society but over the years I have learned that this is my strength and I am happy with who I am.
As I get older, I feel I am coming out of my shell more and more and I learned to be brave enough to stand up for myself and to voice my opinions. Last year, my husband went on a Leadership Skills course at work and my friend was on that course, too. She told me that when the instructor asked the delegates who they thought of as a good leader, my husband gave me as an example! ☺ It makes me feel so happy that he thought of me because I sometimes feel I am the nagging wife and I really don't want to be thought of as that!
Also, in my new job (funny how I still think of it as my new job even though I've been here for over a year now), I am happy to give directions as well as being the receiver of instruction. I think a good leader should also be a good follower.
Thank You, Lord Jesus, for the many opportunities to lead and to follow. May we always follow You.
