Today, is my last day at FedEx. It is bittersweet. I am sort of glad to see it end. I think it was time to move on. I am not really going to miss it here at all. I will miss the people, and think about them often, but the job itself was boring, probably because I was a temp.
However, I am sure if they were to bring me on full-time they would have me doing more. My feelings would be different, but whatever. The lady that I am replacing is coming back Monday. I really got to be a part of so much here. I had a little bit more responsibility more than, I ever was able to have before. Jim utilized me more than Harry. Harry didn’t want me to do too much for him, because when Dorothy came back, things would go back to the way they were. Jim had me organizing his One Note, attending staff meetings, making flight arrangements, building itineraries for his team members, etc. Venkat allowed me to proof read a document for him that was a legal document. He wanted me to make sure it was clear in civilian terms. I felt like I had a little more responsibility with this position. I knew I could handle this and more. I just needed the right position for it to work for me.
Before I left, I stopped by Venkat’s office, and he gave me a hug and wished me well. He handed me a little box. Inside the box was a little “FedEx” pin. I was so touched. I almost cried. I never felt before like I meant so much to organization before. If the opportunity was ideal, then I would definitely work with FedEx full-time.
Today, I am listen to songs from my youth, and the one that I am listening to at the moment, is Hilary Duff’s song, “Fly.” This song comes on right before a big break through happens in my life. It is a good song and very inspirational. I will see where this next adventure takes me, but now it’s time to “Fly!” More later.
