Today's confession has to do with a day like today, I felt like crap. The difference was that I decided to haul tail to work even though I was sick. On this occasion I went into the office and since I was sick, I must admit I didn't look my best. Infact if I'm totally honest I looked like crud!
I went through the usual questions when I go in sick, "hey you feel ok?", "are you sick", "You don't look welll" blah, blah, blah! No I don't feel well OK!?! But I'm never rude, that reply only happens in my head. One of my staff comes into my office to ask me a few work related questions and then it happens, she says "Londi, are you ok?" and I say "I'm sick" and then she goes on to say, "No offense, but you look ugly today". Ugly? Wow, I had never actually been told that. I didn't feel offended, but I did feel like I was slapped figuratively speaking. It just took me by shock, that word ugly.
|I think this is what I looked like!|
The next day, she came to the office apologizing because she went home and thought about what she said. I told her that there was no need to apologize and that I honestly wasn't offended. I will not mention her name in this blog, but if she reads which I know she does sometimes. I want to THANK you for that comment. Because from that day, you made me realize that I need to make sure that I go out to the world as the best me I can be (even though I may not feel like it!)
Until next time.
