After reflecting a lot of things and debating with myself for almost a year and a half I finally decided to call it quits. I submitted my resignation letter (rl) yesterday with great courage, happiness and excitement. Courage as I am able to face one of the toughest moments in my life. Happiness, because I am allowing myself to move forward from all these negative emotions I got for over a year and Excited for new opportunities that will come my way soon. True enough, after I submitted my rl, I felt very alive. Para talaga kong nabutunan ng malaking tinik sa katawan. Some people says “Sayang! kasi malaki ang naitutulong ko sa company.” but I can say, “yes! sayang nga! pero hanggang dito na lang ba ko?” People close to me have known me for being so COMPETITIVE and OPEN MINDED. I don’t want to be stagnant to a certain role. I want to achieve and learn more. And for me to attain that, I have to let go of things that’s weighing me down.
But that doesn’t mean that I didn’t learn anything in my job. If there are things that I needed to be thankful for about this job, it is all the lessons it imparted me throughout my three-year stay: to be tough; learn to appreciate what I have; reality bites and I am worthy more than I know.
Maybe, this is not the path that I should take, and what happens there is just a training to what God has planned for me. So, for now, I should finish this chapter in my life and soon start a new one.
