Today at work we had a team meeting. It wasn’t the usual fare with topics and issues that needed addressing; this was lighthearted.
So that was nice.
In our department have the option of writing small paper notes of positivity and appreciation. These are then collected and shared at these meetings for everyone to enjoy.
Is ‘enjoy’ the right word?
It’s all very touchy feely.
Here are some examples with the names changed to protect the innocent (although not THAT innocent as one of them is very, very pregnant):
I always appreciate the way you come in and say ‘good morning’ to everyone. Your positivity is contagious.
Thank you for letting me feel your baby’s hiccup.
(“Becky’ is the pregnant one. Linda isn’t just a weirdo.)
You’re always putting others first and never have a bad thing to say about anyone.
You get the idea. It’s enough to make you want to vomit into your mouth a little bit.
This went around the entire room and there wasn’t a single one for me, until right at the end.
Thank you for not sticking your middle finger up at me today.
Yep, that seems about right.
