Bittersweet

by Jenny on March 2, 2012

Today was a bittersweet ending.

Today I said goodbye to my job of six years.

Today I said goodbye to a place that has consumed many more than 40 hours a week from me for the past 312 weeks of my life.

Today I said goodbye to a place that has shaped me through experiences, good and bad, into the person I am today, both professionally and personally.

This morning I unlocked this door for the last time.

And spent my last day in this office that has been home-away-from-home for countless long days.

This afternoon I walked away from this view for the last time.

Today ended my time in what many people would consider their dream job.

Today I went from being “part of the team” to being “a fan”.

Today I walked away from a career, a passion, a part of me.

But today, I walk towards my future, my newest adventure, my new beginning, all with the love of my life there to make it our future, our newest adventure, our new beginning.

Today is a bittersweet beginning.

Aw. I can’t believe it’s your last day already! I’m sure it’s a weird mix of emotions. I can’t wait to follow your journey overseas. Go Os!
