I Am Awesome

What do you need to be motivated? A raise? A promotion? A challenge? Not me. I simply need a little recognition. I took on a project at work, went above and beyond the call of duty, presented it to the team yesterday, and shone like a superstar! When I came in today, my boss made sure to tell everyone what a good job I did. How wonderful is THAT? I was so flattered I could barely breath. Important people were noticing little ole ME! I feel like I made a difference. I feel like I can move mountains. All from a nice little chat this morning with the team to showcase my efforts.

In a week, probably no one will remember anything about this... but I will. Just goes to show you a little goes a long way. What a happy day.

A pat on the back never goes amiss, eh?

Big round of virtual applause.

It doesn't really matter whether anyone will remember in a week or not. YOU will! I completely understand what you're saying. Well done you!

Good for you, Jewels! As a high school teacher, I never expect recognition...just so I don't get disappointed. But then years later, certain students will surprisingly contact me and express how much I influenced them. I guess we don't always know, huh?
