August Happiness Challenge -- Day 4

Today's happiness -- I was wrong. Tuesday we got word of a big new project. Insanely tight turnaround. No one was assigned to it because everyone was assigned to it. Literally 14 of us were asked to come up with ideas during a big 3-hour brainstorm Thursday afternoon.

When I first heard of it, I was all, "Oh, kill me now." Last time I was in one of these meetings, it was silly. Pretentious. A waste of time. 

By 5:00 Thursday, I was happy! The meeting was fun! The new head of our creative department, Meg, knows how to manage people, how to make us feel safe and not competitive. 

Sometimes it's delicious to be wrong.

Each day in August you are to post about something that makes *you* happy. Pretty simple. And, it doesn't even have to be every day if you don't want it to be. It's a great way to remind ourselves that there are positive things going on in our lives, our communities, and the world.
