Moving on up

Life is about moving on. We’re not living if we’re stuck in some moment, regretting something that happened. But sometimes, you just can’t move on with your life until everything is right. And it’s by doing everything in your power to make things right, that you live again.

What on earth are you on about?

I didn’t move here for him, but it was a pretty strong driving force. I know I made the right choice. I used to think that love was something that just fell into your lap, automatically giving you your happy ending. Of course I soon learned that was all fairytale. Just like I used to think I would do great things in life. Of course, I do great things everyday. But not the great things I imagined. That doesn’t mean I made the wrong choice. Between career and love.

And as much as I fear this post will frighten a certain someone… I feel I need to get it out. The fact is, of course if I stayed in Canada my career could’ve gone farther. Even if only to the point where I wouldn’t be working somewhere completely unrelated to my field. But I never would’ve been happy. And isn’t that what it’s all about in the end? Happiness?

I do agree with my Dad on one part: I need a little more purpose. But I think I’m going to try a different approach that my usual… I’m going to try and get it out of my current job rather than find another one that fits.

Is all worth it? Absolutely.

For those that haven’t been with me from the beginning, I’m afraid we’ll have to have a private convo about it if you’re really interested. The posts that would make any sense of all this are password protected.

  1. Awh Ate Mae that’s so crazy that you made such a lifestyle change! So glad you were able to make it though and be happy in the end. Not everyone is as lucky!

  2. Omigosh… I could have a full day conversation with you on this one. Have I mentioned to you that I moved from being a Marketing Executive to a Graphic designer???!!!

    I totally know what you are talking about.

    It is about being happy and content regardless of how simple or even stupid it looks to others. Having a purpose and being content about it is like no other. 🙂

  3. Thanks Chris… there was really just something missing then you know? It’s strange because even though there are things I could complain about my life right now. Nothing as constant as that time period was…

  4. Do what your heart tells you to do. After all those depressing posts in the past, Im so glad I’ve been reading more positive ones as of late.
