I had been working intently on a project for several weeks, and I kept getting push back from one person. On top of that, new projects seemed to be piling up, and I couldn’t give anything my full attention.
Running from work to home, working late, nerves about presentations; it was all adding up.
After receiving a new list of to-dos and ongoing negative criticism from the same person, I was at my breaking point.
My co-worker could see I was going to lose it. Quietly she asked me to get some coffee with her.
Holding back tears and grabbing my purse I walked with her gladly out of the office.
We walked for 20 minutes, clearing the air and letting go of the frustration.
I was so glad for the support that day. I didn’t ask for it, but somehow she knew I needed it.
It’s these kinds of little gifts that make me so thankful.
Please keep sending me your stories of good news and generosity.
