Getting back to life-ing and adulting is hard right after the holidays, especially one where stuffing your face is the tradition. Some of you had it rough, working extra hours in the face of end of the year shopping frenzy; congrats for surviving it. Take this time to be thankful you have work to go back to.
Some of you have gained a job, some already have jobs-on-jobs-on-jobs to get your racks-on-racks-on-racks (really - not an In Living Color sketch - I sincerely know what it’s like), and some have a job that just feels like it could take the place of a hundred. While you’re a working badass, some folks are struggling to get a job, keep a job, or keep their dream job alive - and having a dream job doesn’t make them lucky enough to live any of it out, it makes them brave enough to make that goal their reality. This time of year is rough for those who have not. Cheers to going back to earning funds for living and loving.
So, when you get back to your workplace, look everyone in the face and give them a wink of support to let them know they can get through this. Give them a you’re number one finger fling (index fingers only, please). Be the cheerleader to get everyone through this crazy time, a time where everyone is looking forward to not being there. You have 4 more days before everyone is trying to end their year right. Face the crazy head on with the eye of a tiger, and the smile of a champion. You got this!
