This morning, the sunrise made me cry.
It made me cry, not because I’m overly emotional these days (I’m actually not), but because I had a ‘life is beautiful’ moment. The type of moment where you are #blessed to live in a beautiful and safe country.
I’ve been having these ‘aha’ moments lately.
Maybe I’m evolving as a person? Perhaps I’m becoming self-aware? Who knows. But for once in my life, I’m approaching the unknown with a very minimal amount of fear.
I have 4.5 working days left at my current job, after that? Anything can happen.
I don’t do goodbyes very well, I get attached to people and places, I’d like to think not to a creepy extent, but if someone has impacted my life, I find it very hard to say goodbye. In this case, hopefully, I shouldn’t have to say ‘goodbye’ to all the new people I have in my life, as I hope (and know for some) that I will see them again.
It doesn’t change the fact that in 4.5 days I will be sad. Will I be miserable? I’d like to think not. Nothing in life is permanent, and I’ve had the best experience. I’ve learned a lot about myself, my skills and what opportunities are actually out there for me. So really, is losing this particular job the be all and end all of my life? Hell no. It’s the start.
I always like to think about the key takeaways from any moment in life, or time in life that means anything. Focus on the positives, not the negatives.
What do I have now, that I didn’t have 6 months ago?
- The knowledge that risks pay off
- Advertising knowledge (probably like 20% tapped into that – need more!)
- An impressive CV
- New friends
- Silver linings – one, in particular, I’m hopeful for *possibly another blog post **possibly a private one 😉
- Renewed motivation
- A career path
I could easily countdown to the end, to the inevitable ‘goodbye’s’ that I’m going to have to have with team members, the awkward ones with people I haven’t quite gelled with, the happy ones with new friends who I know I’ll see again, soon,
and the bittersweet one with the person I’m going to miss seeing/hearing every working day…
Instead, I’m going to countdown to the next adventure, my South Island Adventure, on the 31st March – 15 days away!
Countdown to possibilities and opportunities is on!
