Today I am giving thanks for employment. This year we’ve moved twice, been through much and repeated upheaval, and each of us have had our own challenges outside of the office. Yet we are an amazing team of women who work well together, hash out problems together, celebrate solutions together, and continue to enjoy each other after several years and many changes.
We also have a variety of activities at work and never know what question will be facing us next, which offers the variety I seek in a workplace. Although some questions stump me, I can turn to my office colleagues. If we don’t find the answer, I can reach out to our State of Michigan network. If that doesn’t pan out, I can then reach out nationally. By then, someone somewhere usually has the answer. Granted, the answer might not be what we’d hoped for, but the facts have been culled out.
May you know and achieve a workplace that brings you joy and fulfillment. I know it’s easier said than done, which makes me extra thankful and grateful for this gift at this time.
