1) I am grateful for the incredible joy I felt when you entered into my life. They are times that I know I will always be able to look back fondly on and feel happy that I was able to experience all of it.
2) I am grateful that despite telling my boss that I’m not passionate about the line of work and being a little too honest than I should have been, he told me during our 1:1 yesterday that he sees a lot of potential in me and sees me going very far in the company whether I decide to stay in his dept. or transfer to a different one. He emphasized that he wasn’t “bullshitting” and told me it was why he hired me.
I teared up in front of him, but I think it definitely strengthened our bond. I was pretty certain of my next steps in my career, but now here’s an extra layer of complexity.
I’m very grateful though. He’s a man of few words and doesn’t ever praise people just because, so I will hold these words close as I continue to reevaluate my career options.
