As YMCA professionals, we are all juggling a large number of tasks and managing a lengthy “to do” list. Sure, we keep smiles on our faces for the members, but sometimes inside we are screaming “how am I going to get this all done!”. That stress can easily lead us to forgetting the fun part of our jobs…and the fact that we work with amazing people!
At yesterday’s weekly management team meeting at Indian Valley Family YMCA, we found ourselves making “small talk” while we waited for a delayed staff member. Before we knew it, that convesation turned into one of the funnest, and funniest conversations I have had in a long time! We all ended up laughing so hard our stomachs hurt!
This experience reminded me (once again!) how important it is just to have fun with one another….the “to do” list will still be there when we are done!
