I got a bonus today. I don’t know who to tell, so I’ll just write it here. I got a bonus– my first ever bonus– today.
My boss sat me down for a routine meeting, and she started talking about things I needed to improve upon. It stung the perfectionist within, but it was good. Course correction… Little things…
Then she slid a check across her desk and told me what a great job I was doing.
My heart softened. I needed that.
I really, really needed that.
I got a bonus today.
