2 weeks from now I will leave Edinburgh on a train for London to start a whole new chapter of my life. Edinburgh has given me 7 of the best years I could ever have hoped for.
When I moved here aged 23, I knew what love was, I knew who I was going to be, I knew what I wanted my career to be and I knew who I would spend the rest of my life with.
I’m 30 now, I’m not sure what love is, I don’t know what I will do with the rest of my life, I don’t know who I will spend my life with….
But…..I now know who I am, I know I deserve someone who makes me happy and that I in turn can make happy, I know that a job is only a pay cheque and that happiness comes from the people around you.
I guess in summary I came to Edinburgh as a boy and I leave as a man. I’ve made mistakes, you all know that, most I’ve learned from, some I’m still trying to understand. I’ve been lucky that true friends have forgiven me when I have taken a wrong turn or listened to the wrong advice.
In the words of A.A.Milne, “how lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard
