Saying goodbye is the hardest bit…

My last day at work was quite emotional.

The past few months in the run up to this day were quite intense I must admit. Often I struggled to explain what I was going to do because I felt I spoke another language all of the sudden, a language that not everyone understood in my team. After all I was pursuing a passion without moving on to some other full-time job. What was I? An entrepreneur? not really. A freelancer? Yes, perhaps, for now anyway. A Foodie? Well no wonder they challenged me. But after all they meant well in challenging me. They care a lot and I am grateful for that. I am going to miss that crazy bunch.


So my last day had arrived and it was officially time to say goodbye. The morning was fine, I had a big smile on my face, which was quite irritating to some of my team members. The afternoon was ok too, still smiling…but then around 4pm I got a bit wobbly. It started to dawn on me. I was going to leave a place that encouraged me to think big, that gave me security and payed my bills, nice dinners and holidays. I was about to leave behind my corporate career – because I had other plans for myself.

I could not wait to finally work on all my ideas full time. I had a lot of ideas, I have some start up money and the energy to make this all happen.
Once I sent my farewell email to everyone, I was overwhelmed by the responses. Tears started running down my face and I started to snivel when people stopped by to say goodbye. I left work with a mixed feeling of sadness and pure excitement. I thought to myself this is going to be good. This is going to be the start of a new chapter and I am taking my life into my own hand.
At home I cried. And I cried even more. So many emotions have built up over the past few weeks. Again I am leaving behind what I was so attached to for so long. Another break up. Saying good bye and letting go is the hardest bit..
I am so thankful that my three housemates were home when I got in. A few drinks and chats later my world looked much brighter again…Thank you girls ! x
