A wonderful little thing happened today. This morning, I received an email from a co-worker expressing her sincere thanks for my help on a project she was working on. She asked if it would be OK to send a letter to my supervisor, describing the positive experience she had working with me. WOW, what a thoughtful gesture! It's amazing the impact a little appreciation can have on your mood and feeling of self-worth. I had a little reminder today that the work I am doing is important and meaningful. I'm feeling really good on this Tuesday morning :)
The next time you feel gratitude or appreciation for something another has done, let them know. You could have a bigger impact than you think. I know I will be paying it forward the first chance I get!
