So sad

Have you ever just been so sad you couldn't even think of sleeping? Today is my last day at work, and though I'm excited about my next step, I'm going to miss the people I've worked with over the last 6 years. They accepted me into their group and allowed me to be their friend and colleague, and even their boss, all without a bit of trouble.

I'm stepping down and moving on, and I can't believe how much it hurts my heart to have to do this. I've been at the university for 13 years, and in that time, I held 6 positions, and until this one, I 'd never been in a place longer than 2 years. I've never felt bad about leaving before, never hesitated to go on a new adventure, but in the last two and a half weeks, I've wanted to change my mind at least a dozen times. I know I have to do this, and I know it will end up being better for me in many ways, but today is going to be so hard.

Big hugs! That is going to be hard! Working somewhere for so long makes it very difficult to leave no matter how much you are looking forward to new opportunities. ((hugs))
