What's the best compliment? Being appreciated for being yourself. My boyfriend gave me the best compliment, and that guy compliments me a lot. (blush!) He told me that its been good to have been with me thru the stuff he's going thru in his personal life. When I told him that was the sweetest thing anyone's ever said to me, he told me he's learned a lot about himself, life, and love from his time with me.
I mean honestly? I am constantly amazed at the way I feel when I am with him. I am a caring, giving person, and until now, I have only been taken advantage of for being that way. You give a little, and someone wants it all. But with him? You give a little, and you get a little back. It's amazing to have that kind of relationship. And it isn't like an effort to me at all, I love doing things for him, it's the way that I am. I love that he appreciates it even more.
Even better is to have these feelings on top of the fact that I can't seem to keep my hands off that boy, and I can't get enough of him. I've definatly found something special with him, and I am never going to take that for granted. He's everything I've ever hoped to have with a man. And then some. I think this happens when you finally realize who you are, and start living for yourself. Stop denying yourself the things you really want. Stop settling.
My realignment plan at work was approved. I made a flowchart and everything, and tomorrow we present it to the girls. I am sorta nervous. I know I have no idea where this will lead, but what to keep in mind is, I am not going anywhere. I've been looking for a better paying, more challenging job for months, and come up with nothing. I'm still looking, and I told them that as well. Until I have the salary I deserve, and the work I enjoy, I'll keep looking. In the meantime, I'm going to take on more responsibility and stop being bored at work. If it pays off, great, if it doesn't, nothing lost, I'm still exploring other options.
What I do know is this. I can't wait to quit my second job!
