I felt it was time for a little confession.
Life has been quite a nice surprise lately. I will admit I have kept a secret from most of you. Last November (2012) I had applied and been accepted to a Master’s program in Edinburgh, Scotland. It started September 2013. I was on my way out of here.
I was so excited. It was a dream come true. I am going to live in my dream city and hopefully get a job to follow.
But clearly fate had other plans in mind for me.
As I was “coasting” along waiting and preparing for my farewell…things started to change. My job wasn’t the right fit anymore and it needed to change sooner rather than wait until I left. My living situation changed and I needed to move. And of course there is this guy.
So I had the choice to make. New job. New house. New boyfriend but my dream was just out of my reach. What’s a girl to do?
I haven’t ever looked back. I have never been happier here. It’s amazing how things fell into place. I am lucky and grateful and blessed and all those things. I was scared to tell my friends and family who had supported this decision that I wasn’t going to follow through. To my surprise they were all supportive yet again of my detour. In hindsight I shouldn’t have been surprised. They want what’s best for me and trust in my choices.
I will always love Scotland and a part of me will always want to live there. Scotland isn’t going anywhere. I am still young and have a long road ahead. If that’s where it leads so-be-it. If not. I’m sure the journey will be amazing.
love, feeling loved xo
