Today at work something weird happened. This lady came in for the first time to the salon, and after trying to help her out, she made an excuse and left.
My heart felt heavy – like I failed, or scared her. I didn’t like it. It made me feel like a failure. And of course I can’t seem to let it go. I don’t like it. But it’s ok. You can’t win them all, right?
I can still try. And try I will – and do, everyday. Everyday I try my best to be welcoming, but there are things beyond my control. I hope she finds someone that she can feel comfortable with.
I don’t know if it’s only me, but I let these things really get to me. I let it consume me and I go back and try to see what I could’ve done. It’s ok. I’m sure she will find someone to help her, and I’m sure I’ll be of service to many, many more customers.
There is no need to ask it all from myself. In life, there will be people that like you, and people that don’t. And it’s true for all aspects – work and personal. And it’s up to me how much I let it affect me. So tomorrow, I’ll wear my bright smile, and I’ll be of service to all our clients. Because just because you’ve stumble doesn’t mean you have to let yourself fall. You right yourself back up and keep going. You don’t even look behind.
In other news, we are having some internet issues at our house. So we will be switching our cable/internet provider. We are also pretty excited about some changes we are about to make to the house. Too bad the HOA here is very sensitive about changes, so we have to wait for approval before the fun begins outside! oh. well
And also, Thanksgiving is next week. As happy as I am to get together with family, eat wonderful food and be grateful for all the wonderful things in my life, my excitement is mostly because, in exactly 6 days I get to transform this house into a Christmas wonderland! Yay!
Anyone else counting the days to decorate?
