Before I become totally jaded and hateful of this holiday season, let me be the first to say what I am most thankful for this year. I am most thankful for achieving the opportunity to work for someone who values my work. It's not often you work for someone who respects you as a peer, as a friend, and as a person with a valid and valuable opinion when it comes to work and life.
I am often asked why I have not become more than I am at work. I am not always sure if that is meant as a compliment. But, my answer has always been the same. I just don't want to do anything else than what I currently am doing. Despite all it's insanity, I do feel that I am in a position that most suits my skills, talent, and desire. But no matter how much I feel that way, nothing matters more to me than who I work for.
I don't know if I will be where I am forever. But if I am, I hope I work for her. She hired me into the company and I have come full circle. Kinda like being home. What's even more amazing is that there are a bunch of us who feel the same way.
So, thanks somebody. Thanks for bringing her into my life. Funny how when you think it's just almost all over, something shines in and makes it better. Later.
