I came into work an hour late because I needed to sleep more. I took care of myself. I didn’t take the entire day off but I took an extra hour for me. Self care.
On my desk, there were 2 cards. One was a gift card to my favorite lunch spot. And one was a card and there were cats on the front and inside it said “thank you Michelle for all that you do I don’t know what I’d do without you!” And I felt so loved and important. I still do.
The card was clearly thought out because I love cats and it was handwritten and just such a little act of kindness that went such a long way for me. As I’ve been feeling insignificant in the world lately, it meant a lot to me.
I am important. I do make a difference. I have made people happy. I don’t go unnoticed even if I feel like I do.
And so I think that’s important to remember. Your existence is significant and people do care about you. People don’t know what they’d do without you. It’s true.
