It is commonplace to see multitudes of people praising the arrival of a weekend. Even more so when it’s an extended holiday weekend like for Memorial Day. This year, I’m no different.

It’s been a long week with a handful of trying moments and frustrations with my day job. Some days didn’t feel too bad, others felt like I couldn’t do much right.

This is largely in part to internal changes and processes that we’re trying to move towards, and rightfully so, to help streamline as much as we can for our clients. However, it seems like I inherently, though not necessarily intentionally, fight against that proverbial current at least a little bit. This has caused undue frustrations for some people.

Even with the long weekend, I know they end quicker than ever desired, and I will once again be back at work, in the same potential situations, fighting my same struggles.

There’s only so many times one can apologize and say “I’ll do better!” before it’ll invoke reactions of “Uh huh, sure, heard that one before.” and start to mean nothing. I know it’s legitimately on me to actually do better. Actions speak louder than words, and whether I like it or not, sometimes I seem to have action laryngitis.
