Parting is Such a Sweet Sorrow

Getting out of comfort zone is always the prelude to significant personal development, in the same way that disruption always comes before disruptive innovation. I am glad that I’ve made another “first step” today:

I submitted the letter of resignation to my current employer, U.S. Consulate General in Wuhan, China, about one month ago and today is my last day working here.

It’s been a really wonderful experience working for the Consulate in the past two years, and I’ve learned really a lot from my colleagues and my position at the public affairs section as a sort of cultural & educational programs manager & coordinator.

There are so many things that wouldn’t be possible for me to experience otherwise. Some are quite rewarding; some are very challenging; some are rather tricky. I cherish all of them. Only by piecing them all together can one see a whole picture.

I am actually the kind of person quite enthusiastic about constantly upgrading the version of myself, from v1.0 to v2.0 and v3.0 and on and on and on. Sometimes it is easy to improve oneself, for example, from v2.1 to v2.2 and the v.2.3, but to have a “dimensional” uplifting usually needs to pay tons of extra efforts.

Many thanks to those who organized and joined the goodbye party for me. Thank you, sincerely.
