Sometimes, you just want to feel appreciated for a job well done. But most of the time, you just feel that they tell it to you too late already. Like when someone dies & you never had a chance of thanking her for raising you well. Or like when a relationship ends & you failed to be grateful that you endured years together. Or when … (fill in the blanks)
I got to talk with my friends from work last week, they were my subordinates when I was still with them. I just resigned after 5 years of working with them. They are under new management now. Before I left I keep on telling them, that as much as they can, do not compare the new management's take on things as I did Because we are a hell a lot different from each other. I guess they really cant help it. Kung si serendipity lang yung nandito, ndi aabot sa ganito. (if serendipity was still here, it wont reach up to this point. Referring to decisions made in work conflicts). Somehow, it was music to my ears – not that I silently wished for that to happen. Hehe. It was flattering how people appreciated you for what you did. But I guess it was too late for them to say that to me now or for me to hear that now. I needed that while I was at a low point of my career, at a time I was discerning if I will go on or give up my career. I MIGHT not have resigned that early if I had some reason to stay (like a little appreciation?!) I'm not blaming anyone on how things end up ok. My decision was based on several factors… and with maybe with fate too. Im just thankful, somehow, I knew now that I did well. And it is a good take off point to where I really wanted to be or where fate will take me.
So from now on, I'll start appreciating things as they happen & not wait til things are over. I just hope you do too...
