I’m sorry, I’m really far behind and haven’t had a chance to even think about weekly smiles. There is a lot going on at home (good stuff and just living, nothing bad), but work has been extra busy since I’ve been back. Several projects are coming to a head and I volunteered for a new one so I will stay busy when the current big ones end. I didn’t realize I’d be ramping up into the new project so soon….. And then I have been studying new stuff on my own time to help “future-proof myself. In some ways it is part of the new project, but it is also gearing up for what’s to come. I try to leave work at work, but this is actually more study than work.
Anyway,, yeah, I’ve been straight out and have let things slip. But do you know what? I’m doing it because I want to and I like it. In fact, taking this stuff on and the sense of accomplishment I get when things fall into place are very smile worthy.
Yes, today and this week I’m smiling about work. Odd? Perhaps, but if you can’t smile about work then you need to reexamine your life – it eats up so much time you have to like it even if it is just a short term job to keep food on the table. I’ve done some really awful jobs in my life, but I’ve always brought a good attitude in and made even the worst enjoyable.
So that’s my smile this week, work.
What made you smile this week?
If you haven’t seen it, here is a little background to The Weekly Smile as well as some quick guidelines.
So, what made you smile this week? Write about it and post on the link-up (or click the little blue frog below). While you’re there, read what everyone else is smiling about! And come back to it later, if last week is any indication new smiles will be added daily!
Note – the weekly smile runs Wednesday Morning to Wednesday morning. I post in the morning (Eastern US) and put up the link usually between 7 and 8 AM EST. I also try to post on Sunday as a reminder. People can and do join throughout the week.
