Coworkers, management still raving about my Madame Manners presentation. I will be asked to do it again.
Being told that you are "if not the most, then among the top two smartest women I've ever known." (Carl) It was contextual, and has me still feeling quite amazing.
Being a trusted confidante. Wow, do I love earning/filling this role.
Subtle changes, not broadcast, that have pleasing personal results.
Constantly finding reminders of kindred souls.
Loved ones who make you look bad to make themselves look good.
Folks who complain loudly and repeatedly that they don't get what they want while exhibiting behavior that is precisely the reason they aren't getting what they are bellyaching about.
Jealousy and envy instead of making your own way. I have earned all that I have. Hard fought and won. Just because I make it seem easy doesn't mean it has less value.
Play, don't play, it really doesn't matter to me. I have my own stuff and no lack of motivation.
