It always feels nice to be affirmed. Whether it’s about something personal, work-related, or whatever, being affirmed feels nice. Yesterday and today I was able to go to a seminar type thing at work called Spirit of Caregiving that was geared toward helping participants explore possibilities within themselves. I went with a few other nurses from my unit and we had a great time getting to know each other better, as well as others within our organization. Spending time with my coworkers made me love my unit even more; our manager even took time out of her day to come and spend a few minutes affirming us and thanking us for the job we do. At one point, they had us turn to someone next to us and have a short conversation. I was able to talk to one of the girls I work with, and though our conversation was short, it was so special and very affirming. I just can’t say enough good things about the people with whom I work. They are a group of really amazing people.
