- Focus on the things you won't miss - which for me is the 5am alarm, train delays, two hour commute and the £5k travel cost
- Make an effort with those you're leaving behind - the main thing I'll miss is some of the people. However, for me it's just a case of making the effort to keep in touch.
- Take what you've learnt with you - just because you're leaving one thing it doesn't mean you can't take your lessons from the old and be grateful for them
- Remember why you're saying goodbye - there's a reason you're leaving it behind. Hold onto that, and remember you're leaving for the right reasons.
Certain things have happened since decided to say goodbye that have also may it a lot easier for me to let go and move on. Drama is something I don't like having in my life and it's something that came up a lot at the end, so I'm more than happy to let that go.
I also found this quote - I think I saw it on twitter somewhere - but it just sums it up for me.
"There are better things ahead than any we leave behind" - C.S. Lewis
I am so excited for the next journey in my career, I cannot wait to start fresh and forge new friendships and build new foundations. Bring, it, on.
