Since we are talking about happy tears, let me share with you my latest happy tears. Let me to extent how grateful and happy I am that I’m able to experience it again.

It’s been years since I quit my dream job. I’d love my job that I don’t find it hard to wake up early the next day even after a tiring schedule I’d had the other day. I remember feeling energized every morning. Always looking forward to the daily routine. I like the feeling of receiving my monthly paycheck. And many more to mention. But I had to quit. I had to leave the environment wherein I considered my second home. Obviously, you will ask for my reasons, right? Well, I had to leave because of my health. That’s the main reason. So I had to choose wisely. To continue working and risking my health or submit my resignation and prioritize my health. So that’s it! I submit my resignation letter and I immediately return back to my hometown. I feel like I’m useless, disappointed, not capable of doing simple things, stressed by nonstop financial problems, etc. I almost feel like giving up.

Years, months, days had passed. On one windy and freezing morning, I woke up about an hour before the sun shines. Decided to get out of my bed. Fetch drinking water outside the house. Boil it and I made a cup of double-strength coffee. While enjoying my coffee, I almost jump up when I heard the ringtone of my phone. It’s still too early and I don’t actually receive any calls or messages from anyone since I quit my job. Well, except my parents because they will give me a call from time to time but definitely not around that hour. I don’t know but after quitting my job, I decided to change my phone number. Maybe I just wanted to be alone. But at that moment, I shockingly pick up my phone to see who’s calling.

Obviously, the number was not registered. I’m debating with myself if should I accept it or deny the mysterious caller. I end up pressing the yes button. I accepted the call. I was surprised when I finally recognized the voice on the other line. I couldn’t believe that I was talking to the owner of the company I was working with years ago! According to her, they value my tenure when I was working in the company. Unexpectedly or let me say surprisingly, they are actually monitoring my health progress since I left and starts with my medication. They even made arrangements with the hospital regarding my monthly medications. And I was in awe after knowing everything. I was speechless. I don’t even remember when the call ended. I don’t exactly remember if I utter the right words or did I really utter anything. Seriously I’m not so sure. And that’s fine. That’s understandable I guess.

Now that I’m fully recovered, I’m ready to face the new chapter of my life. With my dream job. AGAIN. And with my ever caring, supportive company. My happiness is beyond words!

That’s my not so short or not so long story.
I find it extra memorable moment in my life that’s why I decided to share it with you guys. If only could I preserved those happy tears, I would do it. But that’s impossible, right?
