I screwed up at work today, but I’m really happy with how I handled it. After I discovered my mistake, I took immediate action to amend, then let my boss know so she wouldn’t be taken by surprise when she got to the office.
I feel such relief that I can make a mistake and then take a deep breath and deal with it honestly and without fear of shame or reproach. It’s a blessing to work with someone who is calm and patient and understanding.
Makes up for a lot of little irritants about my job. I work with awesome people, and we make a positive difference in the lives of dying people and their families.
Not too bad.
