I recently had someone at work ask me to mentor her, explicitly. I know that a lot of the people who work for me see me as a mentor (because they say so), but this was a first. It feels incredibly fucking awesome to be seen that way by smart, capable people who I respect and admire. Holy shit. It is a powerful force against the voices of insecurity and self-doubt when they drop by for tea.

External validation, right?? I'm so glad you have it, really any time, but just now especially. It's wonderful to hear that your awesome is occasionally reflected back to you. <3

That is super cool. :)

Last year, I applied for an internal transfer to another team doing some really awesome and necessary stuff at my place of business. I did not get that job. A couple weeks later, the hiring manager asked me to mentor her. That also felt great, but also more than a little awkward.
