The day-to-day of an Office Ninja can be tough, one minute you are riding high KILLING IT, and the next minute you may find yourself hiding in the supply closet to collect your sanity.
We all know the feeling. Sometimes all you need is a little pick-me-up to get your swagger back and remember that you are awesome (because you are!).
