And contrary to my expectations, it actually felt good to be back! I did miss the mountains terribly but the emails and calls and documents and numbers that I had to slog through were not too bad. The fact that no work progressed in my absence actually kinda made me feel like I do add significant value to my company!
I can honestly say that I was happy at work today. Happy even after a holiday. That's a rarity but a welcome one.
