Everything comes to an end. It must. Sometimes it ends by choice – ours or others – and sometimes it ends by chance.
Sometimes the ending is sad. Sometimes it is heartbreaking. Sometimes frustrating. Sometimes joyful. Sometimes hopeful. Sometimes planned for. And sometimes it comes as a chock.
This ending comes by choice. Mine. It is planned. For a long time now. And it is a joyful ending. It brings hope to my heart for a new beginning.
I am leaving Jordan. Again.
Last time I left Jordan in 2010 it was forced. I just finished my Master’s Degree and I had no job or other means to support myself. I had to return to Denmark and plan a strategy for my future. A future which for a while was pointing at Jordan. It was a sad and heartbreaking ending.
This time I am leaving Jordan by choice. I have been here a year this time around. I have decided to leave my job and return home to Denmark. It is time to move on. Time to start the next chapter of my life. I have gotten the most out of my time in Jordan. Most of all a valuable work experience, which I will now put to good use in my new job. So this ending is one of joy and hope. Joy for all the things I am taking with me. And hope for what lies ahead.
So I am ending on a high note. The best place to end something. And I am taking all my learnings with me. And there has been a lot.
So the final countdown has begun. T minus 21 days. Starting now!
