career

Graffiti reflects my mood

I went to work today, still feeling very low and horrible. And I struggled through the day, mostly because I had a few meetings and commitments I couldn't move. Otherwise I would have stayed at home. And a few things struck me.

As a team we look after each other - 2 of my colleagues particularly knew I was having a rough day and just gently looked after me - a cup of coffee here, a kind word there.

Engagement at work can take our mind off other things. Work is not a cure-all, but sometimes a good way to distract ourselves

Two other people on the team were also having very bad weeks, for other reasons and again, we all look after each other. I don't think we can ask for more than that....
