Do you know me? Have you ever met me? I'm smiling as I write this because I am a sarcastic person with a dry sense of humor. On top of that I speak my mind and tell it like it is to the point of sometimes getting myself in trouble.
Sometimes I even embarrass myself and think over and over, "Why did I say that? I wonder if I can hit the replay button on that day?"
Sometimes when people question what I am saying, I say, "What you mean? This is my happy attitude, it's as good as it gets."
My point is that judgment at first glance is not always right. Underneath all of my craziness is a person that cares deeply about the work that I do with great passion.
Sometimes, as mostly "women" professionals we are too hard on each other and a bit judgmental of those around us. (Inbred competition I think.) Let us make sure that we support each other and care about each other because the work we do is very important and most often we are all working towards the same goals.
Are you going to do something different than me? Yep. Are you going to have a different approach to a lesson than your co-worker? Yep. But keep an open mind and listen to each other because your weakness may be someone's strength.
In the spirit of a person that really wants a half- full glass....
