It’s ok to resign

“You’re allowed to quit the job you hate even if the world tells you not to

and you’re allowed to search for something
that makes you look forward to tomorrow

and to the rest of your life.” – Rania Nam


Every job is a blessing from God.
I am thankful for the work experiences I had.
Each one of them had added value to my bank of knowledge, skills and character formation.

I didn’t hate my job.
But it didn’t eagerly wake me up in the morning.
I endured in the hopes that each year would be better.
But every step up the corporate ladder felt like more metal chains on my feet.

It was a rat race I got caught up in, a competition I could win,
Should I have chosen to stay.
But it was a chase I didn’t want to be part of anymore.

The battle between paycheck vs passion, profit vs purpose.
The question of security vs integrity.
Is this the life I really wanted to sustain?
The legacy I wanted to leave?

Not everyone will choose money over morals.
With money, I can buy a clock, but I can’t buy time.

July 27, 2016

Please accept this letter as notice of my resignation from my position as Website Content Manager. It has been a pleasure working with you and your team over the last two years and an honor working for Etihad for the past four years.

As I am required under my contract to give you two months of notice, I understand that my last day of employment will be on 27 September 2016. I will do all I can to ensure the transition period is smooth. I will train my replacement and make certain all responsibilities are handed over properly before my last day of work.

I wish you and the whole team all the best and I look forward to staying in touch with you.

Violet Lucasi-Elrays


This one is a happy one –
To know that tomorrow is worth waking up to again.
