Hello … goodbye

I thrive on change …

Change breeds emotions … excitement, freshness, anxiety, fear. However, the worse emotion that comes along with change is having to say goodbye … sadness.

It never fails … every time my life is about to turn around completely, I make new friends. And, not just any friends … I create deep solid connections with people and learn to open my eyes in a whole new light only minutes before I have to say goodbye. It is unfair. It feels like a cruel joke. Why did these people not come into my life sooner so that I could enjoy these connections for longer? I already know the outcome … out of sight, out of mind. Once I leave, the friendships fade away.

Another goodbye …

I am in the countdown to my last days as a tech in the OR. I have only days to finish the friendships I developed over the last few years. I know that I will see all these people again and always love and value their friendships, but I know everything will change.

Switching locations …

My first job as an RN will be in the PACU at our main facility. I currently work in another facility owned by the same hospital … my last day is next Friday … only a week to go. Soon I will be surrounded by new faces, developing new friendships and discovering new things about myself that I didn’t know existed. I will be embarking on a new career and finally use the nursing skills I learned over the last 3 years.

So many emotions … it is hard to say goodbye. I don’t want to leave my friends, but I know that some changes are good. This will be good for me. You never know … I could always end up back in this other facility once I get experience on the other side of the block.

Goodbye for now! I will miss all my wonderful friends!
