First I will start with every year the VP of our region will send chocolates to the office as a way of showing his appreciation for all our hard work. Well last year I talked to his secretary thanking her (because I know she was the one who ordered them) but telling her I sent them home with my boss because I didn't want them in the office as a temptation. She even asked me can't you have one as a treat...I said "NO, my one's turn into half the box".
So this year I was dreading the chocolates coming and I even thought "should I call her and tell her to send them right to my bosses house...not even send them to the office." But I did nothing.
Well the chocolates came...they were so cute all in boxes piled up like a tree.
I thought "I will just peak inside to see what I am missing". Well to my surprise there was one box with Dark Chocolate with cacao...my eyes got really big and it took my breath away, I was so thrilled.
That secretary knows I am on an incredible journey and she wanted to support me along the way and yet still say thanks for all my hard work and commitment this past year. I was almost in tears...I wrote her an e-mail thanking her for being so thoughtful. That meant the world to me.
And no worries...I will only allow myself one as a special treat on occasion...my boss told me to take all the dark chocolate...they will last me a long time.
