One Last Time...
It is my humble pleasure to officially step away from my employment at the Historic Hotel Bethlehem on good terms. After 3 years of service in the hospitality industry, yesterday, Friday the 13th, was my final day of serving in the positions of both bellman and/or houseman at the hotel. Though I will still be performing from time to time as a pianist for the Sunday Musical Brunch, I will no longer serve in the capacity of an associate. I deeply appreciate the dedicated effort and work that goes into the daily operation of a top-tiered hotel, which is why I wish to share a few final thoughts and reflection.
I will never forget the people whom I've had the pleasure of interacting with in the past 3 years of experience; the lasting memories of the acquaintances, friends, moments -- both good and bad -- and invaluable lessons, laughs, and love will always be cherished and held close to my heart and soul. My warm gratitude extends to each and every one of you. Though the Hotel Bethlehem has been like a home to me in my professional career, it is time to move on and continue to my loves, the understanding of fulfillment, and the creation of a better, brighter future. Thank you to all who made me who I am today; I will be forever grateful for your presence in my life, whether it was temporary or lasting.
I wish to leave a few parting words of wisdom, and only the amount of wisdom that can stem from a 21 year-old who's tried to embrace all he can in the short span of his existence. These parting words are the following:
1) Life, some of the time, isn't about finding the answers; rather, one must experience the questions to fulfill one's pursuit.
2) Live. Learn. Laugh. Love. Live. -- five words can model the engagement of living life fully and consciously.
3) Moments are fleeting, but memories can last lifetimes. Embrace your experiences.
Thank you, everyone, at Historic Hotel Bethlehem. Peace, love, and good vibes to you and your future. Until next time.
