Ah Monday, you have been so quiet and cold! It must be snowing somewhere, because there has been a chill in the air that I generally only associate with snow down here. But I digress, it is time for the daily gratitudes, and are you all just a little pleased that I’m on the downhill slide with these?
- Photos – StumbleUpon sent me to a great article where I found some fantastic free stock photo sites, check it out (and yes the swan comes from one of them).
- Heater – given it has been so chilly for the last couple of days, I was very grateful for the heater we put in beside my desk when I started working this morning.
- Clients – or an easy to work with client to be precise, and the other person who works on her website as well. It’s just nice to have easy clients.
I had a haircut today, but that was not the positive experience, although she did do a great job with my hair. I had a new hairdresser this time and I asked her the question I generally ask all of my hairdressers “what made you want to become a hairdresser?” It might seem like an odd thing to ask, but I hate small talk, so I’ve found over the last couple of years that if I ask them this question I get to avoid small talk, and usually find out something a little fascinating in the process. Today’s hairdresser was probably the most passionate one I’ve come across – she is one of those seldom found people who always knew what they wanted to be, and you can tell by the way that she talks about it that she loves her work.
So here is a question for you – what made you become a “insert-role-here”? I’m always fascinated to know whether people are like my hairdresser (always known what they want to be); like me (didn’t know for the longest time but finally worked it out; or, like a lot of other people I know (still don’t know what they want to be).
