Happy Post!!! Happy Post!!!
Omgomgomg….I just had the best experience! I know part of this high is only because I have such a hard time defining myself without other’s opinions but I don’t care…I feel awesome.
This year is my tenth with the company I work for. They have a little celebration for all the employees who have reached long service dates…a lovey dinner and ceremony; it’s quite the big deal. They interview one person from each year marker and I was selected to speak for the 10 year group. They gave me four questions to answer in an interview style video…It went so well!! SO well! I had my answers ready, didn’t take my meds so I wasn’t a blithering idiot (taking now im in so much pain….)
They loved me. They told me that my answers were direct, powerful and impactful. I even got a little “aww” when I mentioned Colt….I said that being the mother of an autistic child gave me first hand knowledge that the smallest bit of compassion can really change someone’s whole story. It’s so true…we would have never gotten as far as we have without the kindness and compassion of the medical teams who have seen him.
I dyed my hair last night and did my nails to match my amber rings. I wore my hair down and messy (as usual) and wore my red glasses. I felt good…felt pretty. I was clear, spoke slowly and smiled on cue. GOD it was so much fun.
When I left I was standing the hallway fishing for my keys and overheard the conversation in the room. They could not say enough about me. The first thing I heard was “WOW was she ever good!” and “I hope all of our interviews are like her!” Wow it was….just amazing.
I thought I’d share that with you guys. I rarely write about the good things. I can’t wait for the actual ceremony. The outtake video is going to be great. lol…I think I snorted when I laughed … I made one mistake at the end and had to retake it. They were all giggling…just. So. Much. Fun.
Loved it. Happy Friday all. xo
