Of Goodbyes and Hellos -- Prelude

Let me state a cliche - "People come and go".

In this journey called life, just like change, goodbyes and hellos are inevitable whether we like it or not, whether it's favorable or otherwise. 

It took time for me to establish courage to come up with this post. Or let's just say, the feelings have sinked in. And this time, I'm ready to move on from this kind of loss. 

Let me put it this way, I have lost not just one but three of my dearest buddies at work. 

They have left. 
They have left me.

Somehow, it etched on me a sense of envy for they went off so brave and they readied themselves with the risk on things outside the comfort zone.

If they've acquired peace of mind after doing that, it's only them who can answer.

If they've embrace the freedom to spread their wings and soar higher, it's for them to claim it.

Yes. Their leaving made me pause for a while.

Then, I told myself, "Go on dear fellows! Be happy on your new quests. Time will come that I can also find myself saying goodbye then hello to a new endeavor."   

To Jess, Gwyn & Alper, with the best memories that we had, goodbye is not referring to our fellowship for the last time, it means it's time for more hellos.
