Is This Really Home?

The older man asked, "Would you leave if he leaves?"
With no hesitation, the younger man answered, "Yes"

"Isn't that unprofessional?"

"Well, it isn't often you find a leader you share professional values with."

He reflected on the conversation as he made his way back to his gleaming office late in the evening.

"I found something I really enjoy doing, and I'll keep doing it until things change."

"Some people can't stand the hours."

"But I went in with my eyes wide open."

He remembers the wonderful warm people he works with. He remembers the trust and support given by him and them.

Yes, things can't really be rosy all the time. But the people makes all the difference. He has grown affection for them. The hurdles and challenges faced together. The dedicated and committed juniors. If he can keep it together and make it better, he would.

Perhaps he has found home. In the most unlikely place. Until of course, when things change.

"Home is where the heart is." If the heart likes it there, then that can/will be home... until things change as you said... :)
