I have finally left the company that I have worked for in the last 5 years. 5 years! it is odd how we experience things. Perhaps Eckhart Tolle was right, that we think of time as being linear, but we never did experience it in that fashion.
Looking back, there were many beautiful moments I had and surely enough it’s not about the company, but the people within it. I’m glad that I have not left the place with regret. If anything, I’m quite proud of what I’ve done – not necessarily in terms of the work I’ve left behind – but rather by the fact that I’ve always given everything I’ve got at whatever I do, and it couldn’t have been better. Whatever the outcome is, I’m happy with it.
It feels like it was just a moment ago that I drive all the way from Southbank to Clayton and parked outside the GOC at 9.30am to start my first day working as a full-time employee of an IT company. There I was yesterday consuming obscene amount of alcohol throughout my farewell parties (all the way up to 11) with my work mates celebrating good times – And here I am now preparing for my next journey.
Eckhart was right, we never do experience time linearly. Things are never as they seem.
I am in transition at the moment from one job to the next. But what is not in transition? everything is ever-changing anyway, safe for the change itself.
