After giving my six-weeks notice, I finally packed my stuff and left the office today. I was flooded with words of appreciation and encouragement as I leave behind this fantastic place I’ve worked the past four years. It’s easy to leave something behind when you hate it anyways, but to pick up and leave something really good in hopes of something even more extraordinary is no easy task.
I’m going to miss the friendships and the actual work itself. It’s still a bit of a surreal that I won’t be seeing many of these faces again. I’m even missing the tedious parts of my job already. I’m very happy with the work that I’ve accomplished and the people I’ve connected with along the way. I’ve taken just about every chance to grow professionally and to point people towards a life beyond the visible. It’s one of the few things that I’ve felt good about from start to finish.
I hope to finish this next leg of the race strong as well as I head back to school.
More immediately, I’m about to fly out to Vancouver, celebrate our anniversary in Whistler, explore Seattle, and really just get some time to rest and reflect. Life’s been incredible, but I have no doubt the best is yet to come.
