Point is, we are all bosses and would't it be great if we could all be good bosses of everything including ourselves? Many times I have not treated myself with kindness and understanding and love. These key elements were what was really missing in my professional life which I realized I needed to develop. I had the technical side down, because yeah you can't show up to work late over and over and over and not finish projects and talk nasty to people and still think that you will have a job, right? So why would that not pertain to how you manage yourself? This was my aha moment. I had the technical side down, you know the routine stuff day to day, but i severely lacked in what kind of Boss I was being to myself. Where is all this going? I will explain...
Cancer struck like lightening. Now there were 44 years that were all soaked in my body that needed to be rerouted, relearned, and some things just plain rid of. A broken me from life and steering myself in the wrong directions, acting out of fear, and loads of negative perceptions. I do believe everything happens for a reason. So I can also look at life and say holy crap I sure have experienced a lot and I am thankful for all my experiences and the people that have been in my life. That being said, I still drive this boat Tami style which means "go all in and do it big and make it worth it!" That saying has gotten me into trouble in the past, but the future of that statement is leading me to even greater things than I could have ever imagined. Being a Good Boss of Me has been a true declaration of living life to the fullest, believing in myself, and taking the time to really "do the work" to understand me and how to make me better both physically and mentally and not backing down or giving into the norm or the perception of what others think or say i should do no matter what the situation, in other words, stick to your guns! Holy run on sentence! Don't tell anyone I work at a University!
