I have been frustrated and discouraged for the better part of the last year at not being allowed to demonstrate my abilities at work.
2 weeks ago with one team member out of town, one in the hospital, and one leaving for a new job my boss was forced to rely on me.
I fucking crushed it.
At the end of the week last week I had two of the four members of management come to me to tell me what a phenomenal job I have been doing, three of them took me out to lunch, and they told me I have been nominated for an award for my work on this project.
I’m not sure if they completely believe me when I say it, I but I have loved every minute of it. I love stepping up, taking charge, making decisions, and getting shit done. I love working hard. I love being busy. I love doing an excellent job.
