an exemplary job and drawing upon interpersonal genetics that I never before knew that I had. I’m also drawing upon organizational genetics that I also never before knew that I had. My word, who would have thunk it, that a person schlepping garbage around would experience self-growth?
I am working with volunteers and treating them like royalty. I’m making sure that they know what their jobs are and what their jobs entail. I tell them to take breaks, I’m commending them for a job well done. I am either overlooking or ignoring it when they don’t do the job well. The truth be known, I have adopted the persona of Super Woman. Prior to work, I’m Alys, the woman leading the semi-monastic lifestyle, a meek introverted soul who at home only interacts with the man in her life. But during work, I’m Super Woman; I am an extroverted, chipper, gregarious, and utterly charming individual who all others look up to. It is quite the contrast.
This afternoon, I worked with a wonderful crew of very hard working volunteers. And I got this feel that I sometimes get, which is that for a short while we were all a community – one that will never come together after this day.
I’ve also become adept at flinging flattened cardboard into dumpsters. This seems trifling but it is significant. I no longer have a torn rotator cuff in my shoulder. Will wonders ever cease.
