Attitude of Gratitude
April 2, 2016 Edition
I'm filled with happy thoughts. I'll be flying like Peter Pan if I have a sprinkle of fairy dust even if I'm not in Neverland.
It feels right that I remember The Boy Who Would Not Grow Up because I'm still the little boy I was, still with a sense of wonder not completely defiled by the world of adults.
I see the buildings across the street through the glass walls when the operations manager asked me to come to his office yesterday. It was easy to feel on top of the world, with my mind playing Alicia Keys' New York anthem "Empire State of Mind."
I felt overwhelmed with humility because of their trust in me. I told him I was speechless, and the only thing I can say is that I give my word I'll show they made the right decision in giving me that promotion.
All the more ironic since I never even asked for it, but I know it's a way for me to once again prove to myself I can rise to any challenge.
