Dare to cry (in front of your manager)

That's what I did today. Well, actually she started it. My most wonderful manager said to us today that she has accepted a job offer in a different country. It was hard for her to say that to our small department, we are only 5 people. And our architect and me only started to work in this company less than 3 months ago. But we managed to become a wonderful team and I have been going to work with such joy every day. And I think that it was mostly because of the atmosphere we have in our department. And this atmosphere is mainly created by our manager. And now she will no longer be in this company. Which is very very upsetting. For all of us. I mean, we all cried today (we are all girls in the department, so that's ok:)) and I still keep crying. I even had a piece of the feeling-sad-chocolate cake. But you know, I have always believed that everything happens for the best. So I am sure that this will give my manager and each of us in our department a lot of new opportunities. And as Dr. Seuss says: "Don't cry because it's over, smile because it happened". So I am just very-very thankful that I got to work with such a great person. I surely learned a lot from her and I am happy for her for the new opportunities. And again greatful to the Universe for bringing such wonderful people into my life.

And the advice of the day is: Be greatful even when you feel upset. (And yes, it doesn't match the title today:)
