Loyalty Goes Both Ways

“Silently she was sobbing at her desk, early at about 7:45 AM. I asked her if everything was OK? She told me that her child was sick and that she had been up all night. Bags under her eyes. I asked her “So, what are you doing here at the office?” She said that she had run out of “sick days” and could not afford to miss another day. I sent her home and promised that she would get paid. In addition, I wrote her a check on the spot for extra money to alleviate her immediate financial worry. She was incredibly grateful. To this day, she is my best employee not just because of her talent but her loyalty. Employers, please understand that most people are carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders. Burning the candle at both ends. Trying to make ends meet. Kids, homework, spouses, significant others, elder parents, mortgage payments, auto repairs, etc. The relentlessness of life. People are worried about their jobs. PLEASE reassure your hard working employees that their jobs are secure, whenever possible. Loyalty goes both ways.”

There’s a lot to learn from Natalie Arias. Good gesture to her employees. I wish the same happened in our current working sector. Be it private or public. It would be good if an employee would feel content at their place of work and giving the best they can for they know that whatever burden they may be carrying with them, somehow there is some sort of relief if they had understanding employers and knowing their jobs are secure anytime they have to take time off their jobs to attend to pressing matters. Great lesson to learn as employees and employers.

For One, For All

Everyone will go through some hard times at some point. Life isn’t easy, but it can be unbearable if you want it to be. Just something to think about.

Did you know the people that are the strongest are usually the most sensitive? Did you know that the people who exhibit the most kindness are the first to get mistreated? Did you know the ones who take care of others all the time are usually the ones who need it the most? Did you know the three hardest things to say are, “I Love You, I am Sorry and Help Me?”

Sometimes just because a person looks happy, you have to look past their smile to see how much pain they may be in. To all my friends going through some issues right now, there is relief in sharing out our problems with our closely related persons and friends. We can always be sanguine about a better tomorrow, a better life in future because nothing we go through in this life is permanent. It is all seasonal, just like tides.

It would be awesome to start some sort of avalanche where we all can be there for our loved ones when they feel like they have hit rock bottom. Come to think of it, we all need positive intentions right now in life. We need to support each other. Support those with family problems, health struggles, job issues and worries of any kind because all one may need is just to know that someone cares. Let’s do it for all of us because no one is immune to any bad happenings in life.

Let’s be pragmatic in our dealings, reach out to our people and help where you possibly can and let no one be vainglorious in whatever act of help since it is all done with an intention to help and not destroy. No one needs to feel pain from the crown of their heads to the sole of their feet. We all want to feel loved and cared for and be enthusiastic about living life regardless of what it brings forth.This should just display and express moral support. Do it for a friend, to a friend and with a friend. It will surely go a long way to touching hearts. All good deeds shall surely be rewarded!

One in a Million

Sitting and listening to Gramps Morgan’s ” One in a Million”, inspired this very writing today. I really love it when I get to relate and be in sync with music, especially if it speaks to me, for me and through me. The feeling is just out of this world. It’s fulfilling enough to the soul and overwhelming at the same time. Lyrics get spoken for us when we can’t really express ourselves in utter words.

Its real good when you find that “one in a million”. You may have messed up some time in your life,it’s okay. Every one makes mistakes and has had faults here and there but one thing is for sure, I am no mistake in your life. I bet you will agree with me. You walk on the streets in town, see a girl around the corner, and all it does is make you think of me and you’re definitely missing me. Don’t get me twisted though, it is a good feeling to be missed by your partner and all it does is make me feel good about myself and as a woman of calibre.

I know you need my arms around you every night; the same applies to me you know! To you I know I am worth a trillion, I am one in a million. You will probably never find a woman like me. If I was to give my heart to you, I know by our love, you’d spend a lifetime making it up to me and reminding me of the blessing I am and have been in your life because you make me feel valued.

It’s just interesting how people can come into your life and make such an impact that you can barely remember what life was like without them. That is what I want to be to you, your knight in shining armor, be with you through thick and thin and against all odds because when united and as a team, we can beat anything that comes our way. We are all a work in progress and we definitely are going to soar to greater heights together.

Image result for its me and you

Someone to share your pain, someone who’s going to stand in the rain with you. Someone who listens and responds to your beck and call. Someone who is not afraid of expressing and saying how they feel about you. Someone who is going to be your friend and lover. Not just A One in a Million kind of girl, but A Once in a Lifetime kind of woman. Keeping it real all day, everyday!

From Me to You

Sunday, 1st September 2019. I will live to remember this date as vividly as I ever can. I had a sleepless night prior to this day. On the morning of this day, I picked my phone to text you as you had been lingering on my mind all night and that very morning as well. I was not in the right state of mind, I could hardly feel my heart beat because it was heavily loaded with pain. My abdomen felt even worse. Writhing in silent pain is all I did all morning.

This day just made me realize how scared I am to lose you. We may have our issues but truth is, it is one of the times in my life I dread the most. This is because I can’t stand the fact that we are not at par and on different pages. It’s said, “No one is perfect ” ,but my union with you is my everything. It is my life. You are my perfect match.

I want to let you know that you mean the world to me and cliché as it may sound, I mean every word. For all the times I have had to step on your self esteem, your ego and on you as a person, I am sorry. I have always been proud of you and I forever will be. You may be facing a difficult time of things and I want you to know that you have my ultimate support.

You may not know this but truth be told, you make me want to be a better person ( I hope your heart soars at the sound of this 😋). While not everyone wants to be a muse, people do like to know that they inspire others especially if the other is their partner. And this is evidence that to me, you’re an inspiration.

I want you to know that I genuinely appreciate you in my life. I’ll always have your back and if push comes to shove, you can count on me being in your corner. We’re a team. It is me and you against the world.

My love for you means I want to stick it out for the long run. I want to grow old with you. This is because my feelings for you are strong, legit and will last a life time.

I don’t know about you but I for once never doubted even for a second when having you as my partner. If only I could dive in and take that which is mine by a firm grip. Does not sound logical right? I know! But hey, may be love isn’t supposed to be logical after all. 😁

I fell in love with you as the most unexpected person and at the most unexpected time and ever since its been nothing but bliss.

To me you are:-

  • A smile on a tiring day
  • A favorite song on repeat
  • My auto-correct
  • Human and Alive
  • My Best Friend
  • My Home
  • Mine

I must say you deserve the world but since I can’t give that to you, I’ll give you the next best thing, My World.

Yours truly,

Swits ♥
