I can’t believe it’s time to say goodbye. While I always knew the time would come at some point…it’s arrival has caught me off guard.
It’s been 6 years (can you believe it’s been that long??) of ups and downs. Filled with growing pains and loads of hard work for all of us. But looking back on it all I can truly say that it’s been mostly ups…there have been very few downs in the last 6 years, and the ones we did have, have been written off to experience and personal growth.
Friday was my official last day at the office, but we were filled with smiles and laughing throughout my farewell because we all knew we’d see each other again on monday morning when I would be popping in to drop off my laptop and office keys….my final goodbye. I managed to stick to my motto of ‘no tears’ on friday until numerous clients started responding to my final e-mail saying farewell. My last hour at the office was filled with phone calls and e-mails…many of which drove me to teary eyes. Not only will I be missed by my colleagues, but also by clients. I’ve spent 6 years building up relationships with these people, and just like that it’s over.
Monday morning was the worst. You became all emotional and even gave me a hug when I finally left the office, without a key, a remote or a computer. My final connection to the office has been severed. You informed me that your morning had been filled with clients phoning, asking you to send their regards and well wishes when you did speak to me. It was hard saying goodbye to the staff…people who I have come to call my friends. It was a moment of absolute sadness….followed by a moment of excitement. The future is shining bright and I can’t wait to go and do my thing.
Thank you so much for the support you have given me in the last 6 years. Thank you for your support and well wishes in my choice to make a life change. Thank you for believing in me and giving me the chance to do the best that I could in the last 6 years.
With fond memories
