This is the card I drew from my "If Life Is a Game, These Are the Rules" deck yesterday. Yesterday was also my 5 Year Anniversary with my company. Coincidence? I think not.
I had a big success yesterday at work, which made me happy. It energized me. It made me glad I do what I do for a living. That was the first of those days I've had in a very, very, very long time. I've accomplished so much in 5 years with this company. Have I accomplished all that I can? Is it time for a change?
Last night Daisy and TEN came over, and TEN cooked a stir fry with steak, chicken, shrimp, mushrooms, asparagus, peppers and onions. It was delish. He was sure to remind me to eat on the "You Are Special Today" plate :)
No. I'm not kidding.
This plate exists in my life.
It has since I was a little girl.
Birthdays, report cards, making teams, making captain.
This plate has always been a part of my life. And, when I moved out after college my mother gave it to me to take along on my journey. Last night was a milestone in my life, and I ate off of the red plate:
I need to start using this plate more often for the successes the people in my life have. Because even though it's just a small gesture, I really did feel extra "special" :)
