a bit more motivated

Work can really be a pleasant distraction sometimes. I was whinging just a few days ago like it was the end of the world. And today, I cheered up considerably because I had a greatly productive day at work. Many critical issues on my current big-ass project that had been bothering me for a while were ironed out and this helped set a very positive note for the rest of the week and for progressing the project to the next level.

Come tomorrow morning, I am going to spend at least half a day mentoring a new colleague on some analysis work and internal process audits. Being the naturally nurturing motherly me (I am so full of self-praise BS, I know. LOL!), of course I am looking forward to this session. It also means I get to offload a bit of work (that's if I can successfully train my protege) in preparation for the ginormous efforts needed for that big-ass project which I expect will go full steam ahead in about a month's time. Honestly, I feel a bit jittery about it due to the extremely steep learning curve (I have got zero experience in this area and had to fumble my way around for a while) and almost impossible timeline. But I believe I'll be able to work something out. See how much I changed in just two days - from the totally unmotivated me on Saturday to the oh-so-driven me now? Unbelievable.

I must thank everyone who left encouraging comments in my previous depressing entry and those who emailed/called/smsed me to find out how I was doing because these peeps definitely played a huge role in cheering me up.
