On Farewells and moving on…

The Husband has his last day in office today. Now, I am someone who weeps on days ends when I have to leave a job and bade good bye to my colleagues. I let the world know how much I love them and will miss them. Farewells, Good bye mails make me all mushy eyed and make people go awww…But, The Husband, is totally and utterly hopeless when it comes to emotional displays and spilling his heart out! I have been pestering him since a week about what he feels to wave good bye to the 1st organization he has grown in and spent 3 important years of his career. He may act cool and not show it but I know he really feels it there.

                 He is one of the people who detest changes and can continue in the same organization for years and years. It is hard for him to be professional while bidding farewell to his colleagues who have been less of co-workers and more of friends. Yet, a good bye mail is something he will not write. The charmer that he is, he received quite a few farewells and a couple of teary eyed colleagues bading him good bye. And he is oh-so-cool with all this! But somewhere deep down, I know, he is trying to come out of his cocoon and spread his wings, risking his comfort level!

The 3 years, his promotions, appraisals, the network he created, the friends he made, people he dealt with, the brunches with colleagues, events and drinking binges in corporate parties (PS: He is a teetotaler  and so these are soft drinks I am talking about 😛 ) I have heard his bedtime corporate stories and have been fascinated by them! I have heard his appreciations and have taken pride in him! And so, his journey here, ends with reminiscing happy memories. I will not divulge details about some of his ungrateful colleagues and the fight for reliving and his notice period. ‘The bitter chapters are to be pushed back when a new journey is to begin’ is what I believe! Fond memories make a fresh start!

He would not have left the organization he loves so much. But we both wanted it to change. His job, that is. A joint decision taken really carefully and after choosing the best from the options available. Being stagnant in this economy is not a wise decision and I know many will agree with this. It is the age when you can fight for survival and take chances to make your career walk the path you choose. And hence, this change. The two months of notice period, his stories about his last days, his fond memories were all part of our daily discussions. And I know it will be difficult for him. But hey, this is the ‘charmer’ we are talking about. And I am sure, he will only polish himself more as the difficulty levels increase and he gets a chance to shine. God and Goodness have been grateful in our journey so far, and I know it will continue to be so since he puts in so much of hard work and so much of himself in whatever he does.  Here’s wishing him good luck for a new beginning and a small piece of advice: Wherever you go, go with all your heart and success will follow. Cheers! 🙂
