The Influence You Leave Behind

I woke up today to a warm and positive Linkedin message from someone I never met and never had the pleasureย to know. However, this person “knows” me and here’s how:

January 1, 2015 9:47 AM
Hello Jansait,

I’m Doaa working with the NOC team at Aspire Services, I joined the team a short time after you have left it. I heard nice things about you and I wish I could’ve worked and met you ๐Ÿ™‚

Well, just wanted to say ‘Hi’ and wishing you a happy and good new year ๐Ÿ™‚

Regards,

Doaa Al-Daqqa

After reading this message and thanking her, it hit me how important it is to leave a positive footprint behind, thinking of all the people I met and those who met me.

Who youย are matters.

It matters because it affects people and it affects the impact those peopleย leave behind as well. Beingย dedicated,ย honest and kind at your workplace and in life in general allows positivity to growย in this world andย this matters a lot.

Kindness costs nothing but rewards greatly where hatred costs you a lot of negativityย that affect your health and everyone around you butย rewards nothing.

Thank you, Doaa, for sending some loveย this morningย ๐Ÿ™‚ Receiving this message after 4+ years of leaving my position means a lot to me and encourages me to be better at what I do and to those around me.

One Sweet Goodbye

My official last day at work was kind of weird.. in the early morning I was excited and happy, later in the day i was denying that I’m leaving.. then I felt like I am leaving but will also leave a part of me somewhere around my desk, in the office kitchen, with the people I was (will still be) friends with.

for over a thousand day I was going to the same place, meeting the same people.. joke, laugh, share, cry, play, go out, and many more together.. will still meet with some of them but not the daily dose of our talks, laughs and concerns.. will miss them for sure..

On my official last day, they prepared a surprise for me with some gifts.. (I asked, no cake since it’s Ramadan :p ) was a lovely gesture from them.. especially that one of the gifts have their names and on the other side my picture at the office and below “Jano, Always a true inspiration. We will miss you” I almost cried. usually I do in these occasions.. I’m a little too sensitive girl..

They wished me well and i did too.. exchanged some last laughs and jokes and went back to my desk.. collecting my stuff for a final leave.. I felt like staying a little bit more but then left before I think twice ๐Ÿ™‚

Lovely friends, amazing journey and one exciting roller-coaster it was.. looking for the same and more in the new Journey I’m about to start ๐Ÿ™‚

Fishes at work – Lovely

Our team lead got us these cute fishes ๐Ÿ™‚ so cute and lovable .. at first they were 11 in the tiny bowel but 4 died and yesterday one decided to swim in the sink down to somewhere unknown lol ya 7aram ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

They are really cute and when I put my finger in the bowel they tickle it hehe no not because they are hungry! because they love me *Angel smile* lol

I pray no more fishes would die! now they have more space with five out and also with the CLEAN bowel .. it was so dirty ๐Ÿ˜ฆ

Anyway, hope you enjoyed ๐Ÿ˜‰

Finally, a weekend!

weekend

yaaaay ๐Ÿ˜€ i have a day off ๐Ÿ˜€ it’s been weeks i haven’t had any weekend or off! finally i’m having one, but not really ๐Ÿ˜ฆ i forgot to tell mom that i have off today so she woke me up early, i heard her singing waking me and my sister up ( yallah ya banat ya 7elween ya amameer ya karameesh.. etc) and then heard dad saying to her “hush hush she’s sleeping she told me she has the day off!” but it was too late ๐Ÿ˜ฆ anyway, she wasn’t sure of my dad’s information and she came over to my room to ask me ๐Ÿ˜€ so the sleep has gone and i’m awake. thanks mom :p
