I got off from work at 11:30 AM this morning, and it was the completion of another wonderful week.
The leadership of my building (including me) worked on a major time-consuming project all this week – a grande PowerPoint Presentation that was pretty much all about us and the work that we do. We did it in preparation of a ‘welcome briefing’ for one of our new Commanders on base. That briefing took place this morning in our building’s Conference Room. It began at precisely 9 AM, and it lasted for nearly 2½ hours. I think that we totally blew away our new Commander with the show, and he was most appreciative of the effort. At one point during the briefing the top guy of our building unexpectedly told me to stand up, and then he proceeded to shower me with praise upon praise for a couple of minutes regarding many of my various accomplishments since arriving in that building just a little over 4 months ago. That made me feel so great !
After 20 years I’ve finally found a place on base for me where I actually look forward to going to work each and every morning. At the end of each work day I always look back at it feeling sincerely happy and totally satisfied that I gave it my all, and that my fellow co-workers truly appreciated what I did for them during the course of the day. I finally have co-workers who consistently respect me for my technical expertise and experience.
I am so truly greatful to God to be living in this current life of mine – the Renaissance of my personal life – as well as the Renaissance of my professional career. There’s no looking back now to what my life and career used to be. It’s all about what it is in the now, and this now shall continue infinitely as long as I continue to progress forward on God’s fantastic journey for me !
