I wasn’t really sure if there would be tears or not. I’ve been fine all day…through our office lunch, while I read their card, through the goodbye hugs. But there is something about sitting here, in a quiet office, wrapping up outstanding projects at my half-packed desk that is leaving me on the brink of losing it.
It’s very surreal to think that next week I won’t be sitting in this office. At this spot I’ve made my own. With these people I consider my extended family. After 7 years with the majority of them, it’s hard not to think of them like that. They’ve been through my two pregnancies and child births, loss of family members, the purchase of my property and so many other milestones in my adult life.
They were my first bosses in the corporate world. I’ve been through 4 different companies with them. Worked late nights and weekends just to get the job done. Traveled the country with them. We’ve done amazing things together. Accomplished so many things.
They’ve pushed me to my limits. They’ve helped me grow. They’ve taught me more than they will ever know.
I’m proud of myself for making this move, but that doesn’t mean it’s been easy.
Where one door closes, another opens. Where one chapter ends, another one starts.
Here’s to the end of one of the best chapters of my life.
