Wonderful Wednesdays

Hey, it’s Wednesday, so you know what that means. Let’s get to it, m’kay?

So this week’s wonderful is actually about my job…GASP! I know, I know, who’d have thunk I could find some wonderful in my day job right?

Yesterday, I had my annual performance review. Because of the way that 1)my company does performance reviews and 2) the way that my boss works, I pretty much knew what was in the review. In a lot of ways, this step of the process is just a formality (and where we find out what, if any, our teensy tiny pay raises will be).

For me, my review is actually a pretty wonderful thing though, ignoring the annoying corporate-ness of it. Why? Well, because I’m pretty damn good at my job and sometimes it’s really really wonderful to hear that.

Basically, my review was an hour of my boss telling me how awesome I am, how she relies on me, and how I’m a rock star. Oh, and talking about where my career could go, and ways I can be more fulfilled. Which, frankly, I don’t hear all the time. I mean, my boss is great about showing me her appreciation and giving me credit and all that, but a full hour of building me up is pretty much a once a year gig.

I’ll take it though–it’s a pretty damn wonderful ego boost.

So folks, what’s wonderful in your world? Let me know in the comments, or blog it and I’ll link you up below.

I have a job, at this point that’s pretty good for me.

That IS wonderful. Maybe I should schedule an annual review for myself as a SAHM… except I’m also the boss.
So, I guess I’ll just tell myself I’m a rockstar.

I officially deem you a rockstar, to be noted for next year’s performance review also 🙂

Ego boosts are awesome–I’m glad your boss was so supportive and recognizing about all your hard work!

Sounds like a wonderful performance review. 🙂

Today, my cuddly babies are making my day wonderful!

Ah, cuddly babies are WAY better than good performance reviews 🙂

Yay! for you! It never gets old to hear that you are awesome – especially when the compliments are genuine. Hmmm…what’s wonderful in my world? The loose ends getting tied up finally and feeling like things are settling down. Not so wonderful? My b&%^$ MIL arriving on a plane today to stay with us…
Bask in your glory and pat yourself on the back! You DO deserve it!
