Tuesday, I am grateful...
...for trying my best to never settle for less than what I think I deserve.
When I was younger, I worked at a major department store called Eatons. It was one of the first nation-wide department stores in Canada (founded in 1869), full of history and stories. My mother worked there in the 1960s when the store was booming. I worked there at the bitter end, when they declared bankruptcy in 1999. In the middle of all the chaos of liquidation sales, I bought myself a ring at half price plus my discount. A plain silver band that says "NEVER COMPROMISE". I've worn it ever since.
Certainly, life does require some compromises. I won't deny that. I just wear it as a reminder to never settle for less.
