So to try and boost moral/give employees more encouragement at work the managers have these sticky notes that say stuff like, "you're fantastic!" and whatevers. They also have pencils and "casual day passes" and pins for larger occasions of awesomeness. Not that I really need to be told I'm doing great, but sometimes it's nice; especially when everyone else in the office has gotten a sticky note! So today, I mentioned that I never got one and Paul handed me a pin. Lol
Guess that stuff still works even when you're not in grade school...lol
Too bad I'm never getting a casual day pass because the deal was I had to show up on time to work everyday for a week. Lol
Finally got a short massage today! Just a quick one since I'll get a longer one when jeff comes home, but I really needed it and went to Spa Ja where Rich had gotten me a gift certificate that one time I flipped out on him at work. Lol
While I was waiting for my masseuse, they gave me this super delicious berry tea...soooo good!!!
Had to wake up at the butt crack of dawn to run home from Jersey and get ready for work so I got to catch that rare moment between dusk and before the sun rose...I guess you could call it the twilight hour... Whatever it was, it was beautiful seeing the first glimpses of sunlight through the trees...
It made me think of that saying, "I couldn't see the forest for the trees..." and how I've been guilty of that lately. I know we are all guilty of it from time to time; this getting so caught with the details that we forget the big picture. Details aren't a bad thing all the time, but they're never really the only thing...
I sometimes need reminders that the small things that may anger or annoy me are not what should make up my life. I have an amazing family who, despite distance, support and encourage me, and cheer me up, sometimes without realizing it. I have incredible friends who are sweet and kind and keep me sane. And I have a wonderful man who loves and sometimes spoils me, and always makes up the best part of my day, even from approximately 6000 miles away.
Life is good, and fear and anger really shouldn't stop me from living or appreciating it...
The silly things I do because I'm vain! I went to a medispa today to melt some fat off my body and do an endermologie cellulite session. The cellulite thing was weird, it felt like a vacuum...lol buuuut! I lost 6 inches around my hips, legs and bust! Woo!
