Count Your Blessings
I have been pretty frustrated with some of my colleagues lately - well, for quite awhile (especially with one of them). However, it recently occurred to me how blessed I have been at my job. I mean, I've been grateful for the job, but I have only just realized that I have been really blessed with what I need to handle it over these past several years. When I was having a really rough time mental health-wise I worked with an AMAZING T.A. who was really understanding and very on top of things. I mean we totally could have reversed the titles at any point. It was really helpful to work with her during that time; I didn't have to worry about whether or not someone would take care of things if I couldn't. Last year I was doing quite a bit better, and I had a T.A. who did a great job with grading. This year, I feel like there is only one other staff member that I can really trust - but at least I have felt a lot healthier. So, even though my situation isn't as ideal as I would like it to be, I feel like it's still not too much for me to handle. Which is just evidence to me of God's love for us.
