Lunch envy- we all have it. You sit down to eat in your office lunch room and instantly your leftover homemade lasagna with a side of green beans, looks like pig feed compared to Linda from accounting's spinach salad with heirloom tomatoes and strawberry balsamic dressing. It doesn't matter how good your food is, or how pretty it looks in your bamboo bento box (with the hidden compartment for real silverware), your food is no longer appetizing. Larry, from new accounts, could be eating low-fat cottage cheese with canned pineapple and your mouth would water.
After reading this, you can thank Stephanie at Listful Thinking for your new knowledge of Professional Detachment. Brilliant post—just what I needed.
Sometimes I feel like an impostor. I hear myself talking to someone on the phone at work and I sound authoritative and knowledgable and then I hang up and I think, 'They actually bought that?'Not that I don't think I know a little about a lot of things, but it seems strange to me that someone would seek me out as a person who has good information to hand out. These people have obviously not seen me in my natural habitat, where I start a sentence and lose my words so my kids have to interpret what I want from my hand signals. Sometimes they even get it right. I suppose what I really mean is I want people seek me out for information, just not the kind I give at my day job. I don't dislike my day job—I am grateful I have a job to go to every day and that they treat me well and pay me regularly—it's just not what I want to spend the rest of my days doing.
Someone I know just decided to follow her heart. It was a brave decision. It looks crazy to some, but it's brave. She is more than 20 years older than me and it took her this long to get up the nerve. I hope it doesn't take me two more decades to make my decision.
