Burn it all down and start again. Everything that I have worked towards in the past few years is now gone. Clean sheet ahead. It’s bloody scary. And exciting! Mixed overwhelming emotions are taking over.
I am not new to this. I have done it before (kind of). I will be fine, I keep telling myself.
Yesterday at 5pm I walked out of my office for the very last time after almost 6 years, the longest I have ever been into anything. I struggled to hold back the tears when I said goodbye.
Today I am packing the rest of my belongings to go into storage tomorrow.
“You are very brave” I have been told. “I am completely insane” is my comment back.
Only time will tell.
You are brave, but also not mad. Doing things is what makes us different and though we’ll miss you in the office it’s great to think that you’ll be out there living the dream. I was sad I did not get to wave you off (but in the end that meant I didn’t get involved in a drive by!) but I know you will do well and experience much. I envy your courage and wish you the best for the future.
Sorry to miss the leaving drinks. It was a pleasure working with you. Looking forward to hearing about your adventures.
