Last month, I hit my one year anniversary for working with the company. In a few short months, I'll hit my one year anniversary on becoming a GM. It's hard to believe so much has happened in a year.
It's been a whirlwind from the get go. It hasn't slowed down much. Each day brings new challenges, headaches, victories, and laughter. Even on my worst days, I still love what I do. I want to keep doing what I'm doing. I love the environment. I love almost every single customer that walks into my store. I love laughing with the kids that work for me.
I couldn't find that anywhere else.
Don't get me wrong. I have bad days. I have straight outta hell days. Nothing is going right, I've worked 50 hours in a week, customers are out for blood, and I forgot 15 different things I was supposed to do so I'm getting scolded by my bosses.
On those days, I have three glasses of wine. (And I've been drinking a lot of wine lately...)
But even though I feel overworked, and overwhelmed, I sit here and still love what I do and who I do it with. I'm still staying focused on why I fell in love with this place and my job in the first place. I still get excited to see my customers and my employees. I still enjoy talking about my trip to Jersey. I still love just chit chatting with my bosses.
So, while my feet are killing me, and I'm already exhausted from this week and it's Monday, I still can't imagine doing anything else right now.
