I know that you all probably do not want to hear this, but today unfolded as interesting. When I speak, I am a woman of my word. So it shouldn't come as a surprise that a lot of people trust my judgement when it comes to making decisions. So much that, today, I made a referral for someone for a service. Now I made this referral because I "thought" (hence that is what I get for thinking right?) this person's art was of quality. But the individual that was referred ended up being disappointed in her work. So much that she sent me texts (the most indirect way to communicate with someone w/o speaking) explaining to me that she was dissatisfied with her service.

I am going to take this as a lesson learned. I tried to step back and analyze this situation from a few different angles. I should be flattered that someone would make a decision in part on my recommendation right? I am. I am not even going to lie, I've asked around too when it comes to services/business recommendations who hasn't? But I don't want to be the cause of anyone else's disappointment. I feel like life is full of disappointments and I would rather partake in the cause.

I know, this is probably something that is minute to blog about but after today, I will not vouch for anyone or any business anymore. I wish that I could help you but I cannot. What I may recommend may not be to someone else's liking. But I guess the reason that this is hurtful because this person put so much trust in me. I should've stepped back and not made the recommendation. It's ok though because I learned an important lesson today and I am going to leave it at that.

Have a great night. Tomorrow is filled with its own problems. I'm done for the day.
