Have you missed me? Nope? Didn’t think so… glad we came to that conclusion.
Yesterday I arrived back to work after two weeks of scampering around Europe hand in hand with my bestie. How I miss her precious face!
On my last day at work, though ridiculously excited about my upcoming adventures I was extremely exhausted and somewhat jaded by the world and industry. I felt like the gods had given me a damn shoddy hand in the poker game of life. Fairly confident this was a bit dramatic; I have clothes on my back, money in my bank and love all around, what more could one ask for? I could probably think of a few! But we’ll stick with the basics.
To my point – running around Europe taught me a mountain about life, and coming back to work taught me something more. Show appreciation for the people around you, it’s rare in business but dear god it makes a difference. I was DREADING work, to the point of tears welling whilst I drove through a usual early morning god forsaken Sydney traffic jam. But as I walked into the office I was greeted with a giant smile, a huge hug and told that it felt far longer than 2 weeks. I was missed.
My day continued with many unexpected faces acknowledging my absence – my tears dried and I remembered why I love the company I work for, why I do what I do and that I work with some of the loveliest people.
So in a nut shell be kind to the people you work with you never know what is going on with them. Show a little appreciation. Maybe think before shooting your mouth off about that damn producer who fucked shit up. Show a little love, trust me it can make the world of difference.
