My boss has a funny way of randomly singing, “wake up and be awesome!” which apparently comes from a children’s movie that his son enjoys.
Well, today, my boss made it an awesome day for me. How?
…The boss nominated me for a major award. Through rather stiff competition, I was selected. The award will be presented today at my office, and then officially presented in a luncheon by the head of my entire agency next week. This recognition is agency-wide. Wow… lil’ ol’ me. Who woulda thunk?
I was truly humbled to read letters of support submitted by colleagues across the country, from Puerto Rico to American Samoa and states in between. Aw shucks…
Man, what an awesome recognition by an awesome agency to work with. I think my boss is rather awesome, too, to have such faith and confidence in me to nominate me for such a prestigious award.
Life is short: wake up and be awesome!
