Sometimes, God blesses you with one of those days that reminds you why you get up in the morning. A day that makes not hitting the snooze button a fourth time and crawling out of your bed a worthwhile decision. A day that falls into your lap, gift-wrapped and pristine, after weeks of hard work, stress, and frustration.
Today was one of those days.
It started normal enough. I got in early, got a head start on emails, and even managed to joke around with a colleague while we put together scripting, email templates, and a timeline for a new initiative. I could sense that today was going to be productive, and that alone made me very happy.
Around lunch time, though, Mr. Monday decided to step it up a notch and deliver some good news:
I received the CDA for my last class.
I heard the little telltale bell of my Outlook, telling me that an email had been received to my school account. I didn’t rush, assuming it was an update to an assignment in my new course or a classmate emailing me back. A few minutes passed and I finally read the email. I’d been selected by my instructor for the CDA.
I’ve talked about CDA’s in the past, but for those newer to my blog, a CDA is a Course Director’s Award.
Per the Full Sail University Student Manual:
And, today, it is because of that class – and that CDA – that I’m having a really good day.
Happiness is infectious.
So not only am I happy and bouncing because of my good day, I’m also riding a pretty killer sugar high.
Optimistic I’ve got some calories to burn at the gym tonight, but I’ll be doing it with a big smile on my face! And who knows – maybe I’ll have the opportunity to make it a good day for someone else by sharing a little of the love.
Lots of love, my friends,
