This week, I won my first trophy. Sure, I’ve won awards or certificates before, but never a trophy.
It wasn’t for anything that I’ve studied, or trained toward either: it was for the costume I wore to the work christmas party. If you know my track record of apathy when it comes to fancy dress, you’ll be as surprised as I was that I made the effort. I’m not sure what led to the changes, but I’m feeling that they’re positive ones.
Even so, I found myself feeling disproportionately happy about the while thing. I think I understand a little more of why people play so hard to win trophies. It’s made me realise afresh the importance of recognizing hard work when I see it, and giving the appropriate encouragement to people.
But you’re not going to tell us what the costume was?
Or even show what your costume was??? Why show us the trophy and not the thing that helped you win it?
