I’ve been feeling a little like Agnes from Despicable Me recently. At first glance, Agnes and I might not seem to have much in common, but bear with me and I’ll explain. First of all, she’s the little sister. She has older sisters who lead the way and look out for her. I have an older brother who looked out for me when we were kids, and sometimes still does. This was especially true when our parents weren’t around. Next, Agnes was adopted. Hey, me too! Of course my story and hers differ in lots of ways too, but right now the reason I feel most like Agnes is her exuberance. She is one excitable little girl. Agnes knows what she likes and shows great joy when things go her way. Right now it really feels like things are going my way, and I can’t help thinking of little Agnes, and smiling. I can almost hear her voice in my head proclaiming, “Im so excited!” This is a really good time for me both personally and professionally, and I want to celebrate. Maybe I’ll get myself a fluffy unicorn in honor of little Miss Agnes.
