I just listed this piece of original art on my etsy store! Part of the proceeds go to help the cats in my community.
I never could have imagined I would ever be lucky enough to have a job with an incredibly supportive environment. Yet, here I am.
I’m not stressed out when I have to go to work. I’m not feeling like i’m going to be repeatedly in trouble, have my self worth continually diminished and feel like I am at the bottom of the food chain.
I’m FINALLY EMPOWERED. I am constantly surrounded by incredibly passionate individuals who are happy and are patient with me.
The lighting isn’t overpowering, the only smell is of vibrant and rich coffee, which I love. I’m learning so much. I’m allowed to be on the point of sale system, connecting with customers, preparing their orders & giving them an authentic smile.
I don’t feel like I constantly have to remind people that there are things I find difficult. Sure, my short term memory sucks, I’m having to figure out things in a pace that works for me but the best thing of all is really feeling appreciated, accepted and valued.
There’s something to be said for a place of work where customers and employees are valued. I think this is the key to success and the key to being profitable.
I am so fortunate to have a great work/life balance and have the opportunity to have my blog and go somewhere to learn and grow as a decent human being. Thank you for joining me on this CRAZY journey!
