Note #1:

 I’m so much tightened through my heart that I have heard you are leaving for another place, and I’ll be missing all your mentoring sessions that we had till recent times. But will still seek presence even during the lost physical presence through calls and emails and get the best suggestions for the upcoming mentoring if you are available. My hearty thanks and best wishes for you to be having a peaceful new place where you’re going to.

Nothing has changed between us because it’s just the distance you are putting yourself away and not the communication and relationship between us. I hereby thank you for your kind attitude in guiding me in all my personal and professional career.

Note #3: 

You had taught me to take meaningful risks even though the depth of the risk is high, and results that I faced based on the risk taken have most often been ended into success. These all had happened only through the mentoring sessions that we had, the moments we spent understanding the problem state, whatever hard situations you dealt with.

Even the place that you are vacating is just an unfamiliar situation without having your guidance in presence, but I’ll still contact you if things are settled there for you.

Note #5:

It is slightly disheartening that you are moving away to another place, and all I want to say is good luck on the journey.
