As this project comes to an end I've spent a lot of time thinking about how I'm going to deal with the nit picking and endless chatter (not to mention the free time). I've really put my hole heart into this. I given up my weekends. Worked long hours. I've had sleepless nights. Despite all of my givings inevitably someone, somewhere is going to be unhappy. My greatest flaw, I tend to take it personally. Yesterday though someone reminded me of something very important. We can't control other people. What I can control is the way I let someone make me feel. When I show up to work this morning, if I let the negative chatter affect me, that's on me. Sure it sucks that people don't think before they speak, that they may not be appreciative, but I know the impact I've had on this project and I am incredibly proud of the work that I've put in. The people that matter, my bosses and their bosses and anyone who's had a role in this project know that I've done an amazing job. That's what matters.
Something about realizing that for the millionth time has me feeling incredibly grateful. So much so that the moon above literally lured me outside because it looked so beautiful. Just an average moon on an average morning. My husband in sleeping. My cat sitting on the kitchen table. The quiet house right now. The humming of the computer. The orange tulips I bought myself this morning. I'm grateful for all of it. Here's wishing you all find a little bit of grateful in your day today. Happy Monday friends. XO
