An Open Letter to My Former Boss

Today, I celebrate my one-year anniversary since I started my new job. One year and three days ago, I said goodbye to the best job I've ever had. It wasn't the best job because of the actual "work" but because you were my boss.

When I started at your company, I didn't have the slightest idea about what I wanted to be when I grew up. And after spending the next four years with you, you helped me pave that vision. You inspired me to go after my dreams. I found out who I was and what I wanted to do with my life and my career. That was all you (and, well, maybe a little bit of me).

You taught me to be confident in myself and my abilities. You pushed me to improve when I didn't know I could. You opened my eyes to see things differently, which really impacted my outlook on my future. You saw my potential and made sure that I saw it, too. You've been my mentor for the past 5 years and I couldn't be more grateful for that.

You showed me how to commit to always changing and evolving into better versions of myself. You showed me how to be honest with myself and with others by owning my insecurities and accepting my weaknesses. And, you taught me to follow my instincts, take risks, and believe in the impossible. And most importantly, you let me know that it is okay to not be perfect all the time. You don't have to be perfect, you just have to be real.

Leaving you was one of the hardest decisions I've ever made; but no matter what, I'll always be on your team.

Thank you for everything.
