The workplace is not an easy place in which to exist, all things considered. We spend many hours there. I know that more often than not I go without eating lunch. And, I am quite fine with that. We have to spend many hours with people who are completely different from oneself. There’s productivity, politics, and posturing. There are a lot of shark-infested waters to navigate.
With such an environment it may be a bit hard to keep one’s chin up and one’s giggle to a melodic stream. It doesn’t mean one gives up. We just are to try and try some more. Or at least, that is my perspective. You have to bring the sunshine inside.
A few weeks back, I was quite touched to get a card noting my sunny disposition. Or rather, that I try to make the best of a work situation.
I found it funny that I was seen as making work less “worky”. I think we should all aim for that perspective and framework. It doesn’t hurt to be engaged on a human level.
