My sleeve filleth over with emotion
I have decided to change my life significantly by changing jobs. When I went I to work yesterday I was fine. Today however, emotion was sitting heavy on my sleeve. All day long I felt like I would bust into tears at any moment. A couple of times I did. People coming by and wishing me well. People coming by just amazed that I would make a change after 18 years. "You have bigger ones than I do," is my favorite line so far.
I kept telling myself that there were also people thrilled I am going. That would make me chuckle and you can't cry and laugh at the same time.
Coming up with creative titles for each and every message I sent out to folks letting them know how they have made a difference for me got harder as the day went on. Memories coming back like a sudden flood.
I have been blessed to know some really great people. I have been even luckier that some said I could be their friend. Friendship is such a big deal to me.
I am thinking of the message I want to leave behind to my greater team. It will have to be creative and unique. I look forward to that final message because after that I move on to what I hope to make an exciting and impactful future.
