Lunch... My soon-to-be ex-supervisor asked me out to lunch. I was a little nervous because we haven't had much contact since I put in my 2 week notice last week. Plus I called her earlier yesterday and asked her to make this coming Sunday my last day. (Which is 4 days shy of 2 full weeks.) Going into this lunch, I must say my palms were sweating a bit. Can we say awkward much? However I was pleasantly surprised when it turned into a very personal lunch. Not only talking work and the future of the salon I'm leaving behind, but intimately talking about each others lives outside of work - just like good friends do. Oh I can't tell you how relieved I was. It was such a great lunch and I'm very grateful my boss is being so cool & supportive about everything. It has definitely made this transition much easier. Which for my anxiety and nerves...I couldn't as for anything more.
And while on our lunch date, to our favorite place 'Fortune Cookie,' I got the best 'omen!' At the end of our meal, as we were saying our good-byes, I opened up my fortune cookie and here is what it said...
#251 - Fate anyone? I'm thinkin' so!
I had to blush because it was just perfect for the situation AND I opened it in front of my soon-to-be ex-supervisor. She asked me to read it aloud after seeing me blush and instead of being sad I was leaving or making me feel bad for the load of work I'm giving to her, she said, "See, its fate!" Thank you Shari, for all you have done for me. I'm going to miss Smart Style and the life I created there. But I'm super excited to move on and try something new.
Yay for FATE!
