Hi Everyone

  I had a rough week.  I worked as hard as I could, yet still made too many mistakes.  Well, too many in my estimation.  I've been down on myself, beating myself up for those mistakes even while doing what I can to be sure that I don't make them again.  In the end, we are all human, and our mistakes teach us a lot.
  Today I was taught, again, that I'm being stalked by the WhatIf monster.  Being too hard on myself and allowing worst case scenarios that are unlikely to occur to stress me.  I learned that no matter what happens, it happens - ya know?  - and the best we can do is care, and do the best we can do.
  So, to that wonderful friend who, in the midst of his own struggles, lifted me up, I offer in gratitude this link.   Thank You, My Friend.  (click on that)

 I hope you others, where-ever this day takes you, will be a shining star for someone who needs just a bit of guidance, a kind word of encouragement or a simple smile or pat on the back.

Hallo Randy,
this Link doesn't work in Germany. Are there other links?

Hi Randy-bee,
as Nikki said: "this Link doesn't work in Germany." it can be seen in Germany only via some VPN.

Concerning the mistakes you may have made at work: Nobody is perfect. your statment could also mean, that you haven't been given enough advivice for the transition period. That saves your companies money, they must know what THEY are doing.

So, dear Randy, just remember, that nobody is perfect.

Hi Nikki;
The vid is for Josh Groban, "you raise me up". Maybe you can see the vid directly? I went to his "official" site, so should be no problem, but I know that Germany has issues with Youtube.

Hi Scottie;
It seemed quite appropriate.

Hi Miles;
I've heard a bit about the differences in Germany regarding videos and such, but don't really know much about it all. I'll let you and Nikki figure that out, if you don't mind.
As Scottie has told me before, I am a bit hard on myself. My boss was far less concerned, quite understanding. It's a bit embarassing to me, but he expects some mistakes - as long as I learn from them.
I think given time, I'll do well. This new job requires a different way of thinking about the products we make. But, the challenge is fun.
Thanks for the encouragement, Miles.
