Do you feel valued ?

First week back to work after the Christmas and New Year break, things haven’t been too bad, actually they’ve been pretty  good, but I still have thoughts in my head I want to write down. My definition of bad and expectations of what is good have changed over the last couple of years, life used… Continue reading Do you feel valued ?
