365 days of love + an offer arrives…

This month has been one I will never forget for two reasons.  (1) N and I celebrated 1 year together, and  (2) I have been an emotional yoyo like never before.

Since my last post, about 3 weeks ago, the extreme high following my successful interviews was gradually reduced to a major low.  I do not do very well with waiting, and silence I have discovered is the worst form of punishment I can be dealt.  I dont know how to deal with it…my over-imaginative mind begins to spin negative stories and my dreams are consumed with very strange and very vivid dreams.  I have been an emotional roller-coaster and a miserable person to be around.  N has been patient and supportive and  I am so thankful to have someone so understanding by my side.  He’s been a real trooper.  As I left the office late last night, I finally received the email I had long been waiting for.  The subject of this email read “Your Coming to France – Proposal”.  My offer letter had finally come through.  And so I ended another miserable and very busy  week with some long-awaited good news.  I feel very reassured to have something official in my hands and to know my time in this office will soon come to an end.  I am desperate for a change and I’m happy to know it is coming.  I’m also so happy that the distance between N and I will be reduced almost 90%. It will be such a luxury being in the same time zone and only a couple of hours away by train.

As I read through my offer letter last night, visions of living in Paris began to flash before my eyes…the official start date on the offer letter is July 1st however this is a little far-fetched considering the lengthy visa process ahead of me.  The countdown will begin soon!

For now, I need to work on some fundamental character flaws I have discovered within me:

  • Je dois être plus positif
  • Le travail ne devrait pas être la source principale de bonheur 
  • Le calme et la patience face à l’adversité sont une force

I dedicate myself to nurturing the above as I transition into a new chapter of my life.  It’s also time to kick up the French lessons!!

Bon weekend a tous!  x
