Things have been really exhausting, more exhausting than my normal exhausting, at work lately. I've had to make some really tough decisions and take a lot of grief from our membership and some staff for those decisions. Needless to say, it's difficult for me to motivate myself to go into work everyday and be the example and leader that I need to be. I feel a little bit like those people slumped in the chairs.
However, one of my staff members today, who many have found to be difficult and a little negative, came up to me and thanked me for everything that I had been doing lately. She said it was really nice to see and she really appreciated what I was doing and it was helping her deal with everything. It was really nice to hear and it's the little things like that, that make me able to keep getting up in the morning, and do what I do.
