The end of a journey, the beginning of a new

Wednesday, May 11, 2011

As some of you know, today is my last
day working at Jobstreet. com. Importantly, the decision to
leave has been entirely of my own making.
I can't tell you how difficult it is to describe
how sad I am to be leaving. When I got here months
ago (16/08/2010), I would never have realized how connected
I would be to such a warm community of people.
To all of the wonderful people whom I have had
the opportunity to work with over the past 9 months - Thank You.

During my tenure here, many times I have been
humbled by the kindness of each and every one of you.
You’ve helped me through some difficult times,
and shared the joyous times in yours. Some people
judge their lives on what they do, others on who they are.
I want my life judged on the friends I keep, and how
enriched I am from just knowing you. The times shared,
friendships forged and the incredible successes which
we have enjoyed have been an extraordinary part of my life.
I am very proud of what we have achieved and they
have been times I will never forget.

To quote Shakespeare:
"And whether we shall meet again I know not.
Therefore our everlasting farewell take:
Forever, and forever, farewell, friends!
If we do meet again, why, we shall smile;
If not, why, then this parting was well made. "

So... until the next time we gather, my very dear friends, farewell for now.
