Really Me

reallymeI had a really bad day at work today. I started a new job about a month ago and it’s a struggle learning a new culture and new job, and to top it all off, I screwed up and wasn’t paying enough attention. I showed up for a meeting this morning at the wrong place and as a result, I was 15 minutes late for the real meeting at a different location. My new colleagues were very understanding and my attendance wasn’t even required, but I elected to go to learn more about the business and, as a result, made a not-so-good impression (in my mind at least… as I said, my colleagues appeared not to be phased but no one is harder on me than myself.

I worked late tonight and emailed my husband to say he was on his own for dinner but on my way home, I decided something. I love to cook. I love to cook with loud music and a beer. So I stopped at the grocery store to pick up a few supplies, came home and got into some comfy clothes, popped myself a beer, turned up the music, and started cooking. And do you know what, I FEEL GREAT! No matter what happens during the day, I need to do what I love to do. So today’s post isn’t a recipe. It’s really me… cooking, dancing, and singing!

So go do it yourself! xo

    Maybe beer & music at work are in order! Chin up, you just need some time to begin to feel at home in the new role. You’ll get there.
