Apologies to everyone who I haven’t emailed, or written a reply message to, or participated in their questions meme, or what have you—it’s been a busy few weeks. I’m hoping to catch up in the next few days after my next two work shifts.
Everything’s been all upheaval-y at work recently so I’ve ended up there most of the time. Today a customer must have liked something I’m doing, because she said to R after speaking with me, “She’s a go-getter.” I can’t imagine anything less true but maybe in this job, it isn’t a lie. It occurred to me tonight I am such a good value for this company. K finally got his promotion the other day, and I told him I’m afraid to quit and leave people in the lurch here (because I am one of a handful of good and reliable workers) and he was so kind (but didn’t hesitate) in saying “Don’t feel bad.” Before he left we talked a bit about the plan for me for tomorrow, where to move things, and I made a suggestion and took the initiative on a few things. When C came in at 5, I was running in ten directions trying to get things done and she laughed at me to R when I asked a question because she knew before I did that R would just defer to my idea. I’m necessary, here. I’m indispensable. I’m a go-getter. Now if only I could act like that in every area of my life.
