1. Receiving a thoughtful, encouraging, and just plain kind note from one of my peers today. In this anticipated-to-be-very-stressful-and-emotional week, my colleague’s action filled me with appreciation and comfort.
2. At a team lunch, one of my peers placed a “complicated” order with our Mexican waiter. She apologized for being “difficult”, to which he replied, “It’s no problem – you were very polite about it. Whenever I feel annoyed with a customer, I just pretend I don’t speak English.” I laughed out loud – I LOVE this man’s honest audacity. Bravo sir! 🙂
3. Taking a walk outside – my first outdoor jaunt in literally months. The sunshine and fresh air lifted my spirits – and the spring weather filled me with a bit more hope.
