Contrary to what the lack of posting on this blog might suggest, I am alive and kicking. Here is a photo of Winston to distract you of the fact that I am the WORST blogger ever:
Isn’t he just the CUTEST? The answer is yes, yes he is.
Anyway, I apologize for disappearing yet again. Moving is so stressful, and while some things have calmed down a bit, there is still so much up in the air that is out of my control. I will be totally honest here; it has NOT been easy and some days I feel like I have a enormous boulder on my chest that, try as I might, I can’t lift. Thankfully, I really love my new job, and I am beyond lucky to have my dad to rely on for so many different things. I do recognize that. Still, I feel like I have yet to get off the emotional roller coaster that is my life. I know this is partly because I am an extremely sensitive person with a tendency to overthink (who, moi?), but it’s also pretty understandable considering how many things are still not ‘resolved’.
I continue to believe, perhaps naively, that everything will eventually fall into place (because what is the alternative?), but it’s hard. I miss my partner and I feel as though I am in a continuous state of ‘limbo’, not totally settling in, but also trying to do so as much as I can.
That said, I am so happy to be in Sweden, the weather has been fantastic, and I head to Florence with my team later this week to work with our partners on a big project. I’m so excited! I just need to remember to savor the good moments and not take the bad ones too seriously, because, as I said, I have confidence that everything will work out and every bump on the way there is a chance to stop, reflect, and grow.
I also have SO MANY ideas in my head of things I want to blog about, which is exciting. Please don’t leave me! I promise to update again as soon as I can.
With love, as always.
