I was having the second of two really crappy bad days in a row. Then Lisa Byrne (who does awesome things, including Social Zest & DC Event Junkie) sent these flowers over to brighten my day. The card was also signed by pal Shashi Bellamkonda, and on behalf of the rest of the team I usually work with over at Network Solutions.
Now, this was a lovely gesture, no matter how you look at it. But it was exceptionally so because – yesterday was one of those days where I really needed someone to just acknowledge that what I do isn’t just a job to me, or how I get food on the table for myself and my family. I have other talents and abilities – there’s a lot of ways I could just make this whole thing about money and just be done with it.
