You feel you are doing something right somewhere and got your values right
when you meet a colleague after 3 weeks and she breaks down instantly and ask you for a hug. She is going through tough times and she needed a tight hug to feel better. I gave her a big bear hug and let her cry. I told her its okay to cry and she is a strong person. She will figure out the way to come out of this.
when another colleague tells you how she missed sharing small stories with you all these weeks
when anyone you see greets you with a “happy new year” with a broad smile. Some stop for couple of minutes to ask about your holidays and a quick chit chat.
when your diet buddies remind you about dieting which was otherwise long forgotten.
when your junior coworker is excited to finally get time to put our head together into something, succeed in the effort and appreciates you with couple of special tea bags.
Felt great to sit at my window seat and glance at empire state building by just tilting my head to the left.
Took a deep breath and counted my blessings. Happy to be back at desk 😊
