Getting to the Centre



As the seasons change I always find myself looking for my next opportunity...
                             
                                the next job....
                                              the next country...
                                                            the next adventure...

For the past 12 years I've been moving at least once a year. And it was all by choice. Back in highschool I made the decision that I wanted to see the world. I wanted to discover myself. And I'm happy to report that I've made all that a reality.  I don't have all the answers but I've spent a lot of time looking for them and hope to never stop searching.

I recently stumbled across We Are Sole Sisters: Freedom Stories. I love reading stories of how other strong independent women have found their freedom to live a life on the road.

But here's the thing: I never started out on the typical path. I stayed away from relationships when I was younger because I wanted to know myself before I lost who I wanted to be in a relationship. I turned down secure work opportunities because I wanted to continue to pursue my own education or knew in my heart that it wasn't what I wanted to be doing. And now I feel like I'm at one of those important crossroads again. I've always felt a bit like a homebody with restless feet. I find myself more and more wanting to have a place to call my own. A job that I want to go to work everyday. A schedule where I can actually make plans more than a few months in advance.

The other side to my dilemma is when it comes to my relationship. I hope that one day my boyfriend will be able to join me here in Canada. But the reality is that even a short visit requires ALOT of paperwork and documentation.  Having some stability in my life will greatly help this whole process.

I'm no closer to finding an answer but I hope I'm getting closer to the centre of the diagram above. And I'm willing to make whatever sacrifices it takes and put in the hard work it takes to get there.
