Open and ClosedMarch 1, 2010
I find myself both excited and hesitant. Excited because I am about to face another chapter in my life which will surely be of great importance. I am sure that this path I am taking now is going to take me places, let me learn new things, and allow me to experience a whole lot of new circumstances. I am certain that I am going to have another bumpy and pressured ride, but it is one where I can certainly survive and live through.
However, with all the excitement, I also feel hesitant. I am going to leave behind people which I have come to care about so much. I am saying goodbye to friends and people that I have known for the past three years. I am leaving behind the very people who have motivated me to learn and to grow.
Somebody told me that I also need to do such things for myself. I cannot forever rely on the success of other people. I also have to pursue my own success. I cannot stay in their shadows forever. I have to have a shadow of my own. I am thankful because GOD gave me a chance to work with such amazing and determined people. I will always be driven to success because of the values that I have acquired from them. But I am also very much looking forward to meeting new people who can also be as inspiring and as motivating. So, as much as it pains me to say goodbye, I am also happy because a new door is openly waiting for me.
