They say it is good to express your feelings when upset or bothered so this is me expressing my feelings.
About a month ago I created a couple of flyers to promote smoking prevention/reduction in the community. I spent a lot of time on the flyers, edited them, found pictures that I thought fit best and translated them. I sent these flyers to my supervisor a month ago and looked over the translation with another co-worker.
Today was the day to print. We were actually going to pass out the flyers I created and that was a great feeling! But then I discovered that my supervisor never read the email and there were things that needed to be changed. Things like formatting, colors, and adding information. They still look like my original idea but different. I got the credit for making them but I no longer want it.
Lesson learned: Things don’t always turn out how they seem, even if it all seemed okay for a while. We have to be open to changes even when they aren’t what we wanted and move on. So this is me moving on 🙂
This one unforeseen setback won’t get me upset. I will be doing outreach with my supervisor tomorrow, and working on my surveys.
I DECLARE THIS TO BE A PRODUCTIVE WEEK!
