The cupboard has been moved

“Being a part of the furniture”

Can be seen as a term of endearment.

People know where to find you.

You show up regularly enough

For others to know they can lean on you,

Depend on you

Make plans around you

And sadly, also take you for granted.

For any organisation,

It’s important to recognize

That unlike furniture,

People can get up and leave

Given the right circumstance.

So no matter how long someone has been

A part of your team

Never forget that the best parts of people are the

Voluntary parts,

So be sure to handle them with care

Lest one day you wake up and realize

That the cupboard has been moved.
