-Talking to one of my Egyptian coworkers and he asked me how old I was. I told him 58 and his mouth literally dropped open. He said he didn't think I was any older than 48. Ok, maybe he was BSing me but it made me feel pretty good.
-My old fire chief, Khalid, from my previous contract in Egypt called me. They have a new employee that used to work where I am now. He was telling Khalid about this crazy manager who stood while he worked and was always moving around all over the place. Khalid laughed and new it was me as soon as he said it. That kind of crazy I'll gladly admit to.

"You don’t need anyone’s affection or approval in order to be good enough. When someone rejects or abandons or judges you, it isn’t actually about you. It’s about them and their own insecurities, limitations, and needs, and you don’t have to internalize that. Your worth isn’t contingent upon other people’s acceptance of you — it’s something inherent. You exist, and therefore, you matter. You’re allowed to voice your thoughts and feelings. You’re allowed to assert your needs and take up space. You’re allowed to hold onto the truth that who you are is exactly enough. And you’re allowed to remove anyone from your life who makes you feel otherwise."
