The other night, I sent my male boss an email…



Coming out was a virtuous experience. I am very happy that my superior took my news kindly and with overwhelming sense of understanding. My belief that people are naturally good and that everything always turns out all right in the end was reinforced.


Coming out was just one of the things I’ve planned.


The other night, I sent my male boss an email expressing my desire to resign from my post as Gallery Manager. Being a man of immense wisdom, he expressed his sincerest understanding of my need to leave. My female boss followed his suite. I would love to make my exit sooner but as a professional requirement, I should wait until they find my replacement and that responsibilities should be smoothly turned over.


Consciously deciding to make a change in our lives and moving on is part of our nature as humans. We should not battle against the natural flow. Things happen for a reason and the reason, most of the time, if not always, is for the greater good. Experiences teaches us a lot of things, mostly how to improve ourselves and how to live a better life.


My resignation is just the second bullet on my list. I have a few more coming up. I will share it in due time. For now, I am slowly shedding the outer covering that I’ve made to become my comfort blanket. I will be bare soon and this gives me another opportunity to wrap my self tighter and more comfortably with new experiences.


All of these changes are somewhat overwhelming but I am definite that it’s for my own good. I am sure I will be more mature and wiser with my dealings this time. And that’s the cherry on top of the ice cream.


I am back to my usual, jovial self. I bid goodbye to the drama for now.


It’s time to keep moving forward.

Imagine holding an ice-cold bottle of SML (or whatever your poison of choice is... :P) and raising it...

"To moving on. To things that happen for a greater good. To saying adios to drama. Cheers, TGM! Cheers!"

The Green Man said...

@ Angelo: I would raise a glass and cheers to that :-D

Let's celebrate one of these days.

Angelo said...

TGM: Cool, cool. You got my message (an unpublished comment in another blog post) then?

Take care. :)

The Green Man said...

@ Angelo: I received your previous messages Bud. But I can't publish it since you got your personal email there :-D

Feel free to send me an email at thegreenmandiary@yahoo.com.

H,

Your choices are half chances - so take the chance. We will never know where the road leads, won't we?

Hi K. I know they are. I still want to open a few holes for other possibilities... so that if plan A doesn't work, I can quickly stir up a plan A.1 before jumping to plan B. hehehe

But I hope things work out for me the way I am planning them to.

And you know I'm always lurking in the background if you need a Plan A.2 Even though I don't get to see much of you anymore!

Hi Ben sweety. I missed you a lot. I hope we get the chance to get together soon... just for chat and catching up.

I've got several guys get tested (voluntarily) and all of them came out negative! Ain't that AWESOME? Then I, of course, gave them the usual advise to take care of themselves and practice safe sex from the "day" going forward.

I miss you buddy :-)

P.S.
When I reach the point that I have to make a plan A.2... I will tap you :-)
