My favourite month of the year is here! September 2012, you’ve been fantastic so far: new job, new city, and new digs!
I try not to write long-winded posts but September always marks the beginning of a “new year” for me. Since January, it’s been a roller-coaster in the career department. Burnouts, frustration, an abundance of opportunities, big disappointments, prioritizing, a handful of tough decisions later, and just when I was about ready to finally give up and try something else – everything fell into place when I least expected! I’m truly thankful for all the opportunities that have come my way and I firmly believe in creating my own luck. If you want it, go get it. You can’t win the lottery if you don’t buy a ticket. Put yourself out there. It might not happen for you right away, but don’t give up. But most importantly, NEVER settle.
As of next week, I return to the city of cowboys and will be blogging to you from Calgary, which also means… MORE blog content! Discovering new restaurants, events, recipes/#singlegirldinner, decor, etc. yes it’s true, I finally caved and bought furniture. I kind of hate myself for it, but it was a necessary evil.
So please stay tuned! Apologies for being MIA, just getting settled in. Side note, I had to “pare down” (in loose terms, because let’s get real) my shoe collection for the move – THE HORROR.
That’s like asking a parent which child is their favourite. Morally, it just feels wrong. The shoes I’ve left behind at my parents’ house are now lonelier without their other comrades. Yes, I think inanimate objects have feelings too. Especially shoes. Sorry I’m not sorry for being weird.
Did I mention that it’s also my birthday month? :)
