This past Tuesday was probably the worst day I’ve ever had at work. It started out bad and almost immediately escalated to terrible, with some embarrassing Tears of Frustration and many, many things spiralling out of control. When I wasn’t crying with rage and humiliation, I was being steamrolled in a baffling 6-hour meeting. It was a long, bad day.
When I stopped at my desk late that afternoon, there was a card addressed to me on my keyboard: inside, an unsigned, hand-written note with the nicest, most uplifting and encouraging thing anyone has ever said to me. I’m not going to share it – I want to keep it inside my heart to call upon whenever I need a reason to go on – but I wanted to say thank you. I don’t know who left me the note, but it was truly appreciated, and I hope you somehow know how very, very much it means to me.
