A Fairwell Letter

This was the farewell letter that i have written on my last day at my previous employer's company, i would like to point out that i have removed the name of my previous workplace due to confidentiality reasons. Have a good reading.

Dear All,

First and foremost, i would like to apologize for not sending you this letter earlier but allow me to apply the saying "Better late than never" this time.

As most of you know that i have been working with the company for the period of two and a half years. For some people, this period of time is amount to nothing and its just a reflection of a simple numeric amount. But if we take a further look and delve deeper below the shell of this figure towards the core of it, one will be aware of the fact that this limited period of time has lots value that is greater than the longest imaginable period and this can be simply resorted to the great experiences gained, relationships established and the friendships that have been forged. I can tell you that the value of those three combined is equal to the most valuable treasures in the world.

The period i have spent working here was a roller coaster ride, with all the meaning that this expression carries, it was a fairly enjoyable one. I would like to say that i was lucky enough to have gained the three most valuable elements any body can have through this ride that lasted for two and a half years. I have had the opportunity to meet an extremely wonderful, colorful, profound group of people whom i have shared a of cup of merriment, a handful of joy, and a pinch of sadness and to that i am grateful. Furthermore, I would like to say that all of you guys had a role in my personal growth and development, there are a millions of things that we can learn within such a seemingly limited period of time, no matter how limited or deep our contact was. To that I am filled with appreciation. I was very fortunate in finding in some of you a resort in times of great stress and pressure as well as in times of desperate need, I am really thankful for knowing each and everyone of you; thank you for being of great support for me and for being there whenever I needed you, you were the hand that broke my fall every time. I must have been very fortunate to have you there for me.

Finally, I would like to say that every single one of you is greatly talented and special in numerous ways, all of you are super stars and the company is lucky to have you in it. Trust your potential and talent, always remember they are a gift from God and He does not give anything that is flawed. Keep your chin up and don't let anything defeat and break you nor let anyone undermine you and cause you to doubt yourself and abilities. Do let go of everything that puts you down and don't think about it even if it was a very important component of what you do; it will only act as 1000000 tons of weight that will drag you down to the deepest end of an ocean called depression. Always remember, that you are doing your best and you are capable of doing wonders with that - your own Taj Mahal or pyramids of Egypt. Don't beat yourself up too hard by any chance if anyone on earth was not satisfied with what you have done and spent a lot of effort and time doing it. Always aim to reach the highest peak of the mountain and don't let any hardship crash and burn you, rise up like a phoenix and beat it. Don't let the fact that God has something that is extremely great in store for you escape your mind or sight, be patient and don't rush; all in good time my friends. The most important thing is to keep that spark or spirit ignited, do whatever you do but not let it fade away, shelter and nurture it. Take some time for yourself, stop and take deep refreshing breath and do what ever you like for even the smallest period of time it will sure rejuvenate you.

I am really sorry if i have harmed or hurt anyone of you in any way since i am aware of the fact that i did not put you all through milk and honey, please accept my apologies

Thank you all, you are the best bunch of friends and colleagues that anyone can have and for all of the wannabe fathers, mothers, husbands and wives congratulations and wish you and your loved ones the utmost best in your lives.
