    Some of the greatest triumphs I have had lately have been failures…but they felt like wins.

    Customer Service and being “The Help”

    Normally when you you hear someone call a worker “the help” it is taken as demeaning. In fact I am quite sure that the majority of people who use the term are actually talking down to the individual they are speaking to. However with most derogatory terms there is often a way to turn it around.
    When a person can’t do something for themselves, they need help getting it done. When you are helping someone who is in need you are not lower than them. You are actually better than they are because you can do something that they can not do for themselves.
    As an educated woman who has spent 15+ years in my industry I have had my fair share of uppity customers. People who curse at me, call me names, demand things they don’t deserve, and treat me abusively. It’s just the lot I have to deal with as a front desk representative for Hotels. I realize that from time to time this abuse is dehumanizing and the pay is certainly not enough to make it feel better on pay day.
    Tonight however things turned around for me and gave me a rare glimpse at what a tremendous skill I have. In the first part of my evening the owner of the hotel called to speak to me. Normally this would be about issues or problems however this was about business. He was calling to ask my opinion about a property in town he was considering purchasing and wanted my knowledge. Luckily I was very familiar with this property and the developments coming up around it.
    He praised me for my work and promised me a raise after my probationary period. It felt good to be appreciated although I seriously doubt I’ll ever see any kind of substantial raise. Unless business picks up.
    Then I had a lady call me in tears. Our entire town was booked solid for the weekend due to numerous events going on this weekend. She was sick and couldn’t drive, her children were crying, and she desperately needed a place to lay her head down. I called every hotel in our group within 100 miles until I found her a spot and had them hold the room for her. She called me about 45 minutes later to thank me.
    Her problem wasn’t my issue. But I have a compassionate heart and I felt sorry for her. I sincerely wanted to HELP her. That meant I was “the help” in that scenario. Knowing that she was safe and sleeping brought me peace also. In that situation being the help wasn’t negative at all.
    We can’t expect people to have the ability to treat us humanely if we can not find it in ourselves to look past the abuse and treat them like human beings.

Hey guys, pictured above is the captain of my team, Pirate-I-Tude.She was just recently diagnosed with breast cancer and we are trying our hardest to help raise money for her treatment. This is a link to the GoFundMe page our co-captain created. Pirate is a 7th grade history teacher and has such a genuine love for what she does, she is always helpful, caring, and has been a wonderful leader, and I want us to be able to repay her for what she’s done and is continuing to do. If you’re able to donate to the cause we would be forever grateful, and I’m sure she would be, too. If not, a signal boost would be very appreciated! Derby love <3

Pirate is the most amazing person, I’m better for having known her.

My mother just died if this, it’s very near to my heart. I love this woman. Please help her.

Please help this amazing lady.

I don’t know her but this could have been me!  Luckily my lumps were nothing abnormal.  Please help this Derby Sister!  Good luck Pirate!

    So do this first without weights then work your way up. Great for booty. If you feel it in hamstrings it means you glutes are weak. 3 sets of 20. #gym #workout #fitness #fitspo #squats #inspiration #love #healthy #glutes

    Done

    So they have a scale like this at my gym.  It&#8217;s the only scale I trust really.  Sometimes it betrays me (because I betray myself).  However last night before I started what would turn out to be a pretty intense workout, I decided to hop on and see what it said.  The truth?  I&#8217;ve lost 14 lbs since I started my diet back.  I wish I hadn&#8217;t gained 20 over the holidays lol but I&#8217;m over half way back to where I was.  And I am 50 lbs away from my goal weight&#8230;my end goal weight.  I&#8217;m gonna make it!  This new plan is working!
