I have an file in my work email called "The good stuff". Even though it maybe a little egotistical, I keep emails that compliment me on my job performance. I know some people do this to show potential future employers, but I keep these emails just for me. When I am having a bad week I open this folder and just start reading. I think about how I worked so hard when I started an account from scratch, how I bent over backwards to earn the respect of employees that were wronged in the past, and all those times I put my personal life aside temporarily to go an extra mile for my company.
To say that I have been on an emotional low this past week is a pretty big understatement. Not just with work, but with my personal life too. All the small stuff is just really adding up and I have to constantly remind myself that no one has died, I have no life threatening illness, and I have a roof over my head with food to eat, so really these problems aren't so bad and I need to get the f over it.
So today is a new day, and I have to work on all that. Today "The good stuff" folder will be opened once again.
BTW, I passed my test.
