Trials & Tribulations

What a tumultuous month for me! I have had quite a month, and I blame that on the lack of blog posts! Thank goodness for my mother who emailed me requesting “some reading material.”

Where to start? Well, you may remember a few of my earlier posts outlining my thirst for some big changes. I have been participating in what I will label my “Mid-20s Life Crisis” which I’ve also lamented about in this blog. I’ve been desperately trying to establish balance in my life, discover who I am, and most recently what I want to do when I grow up.

While traversing through this terrain, it became very apparent to me that I needed some space to grow, some new horizons to set my gaze on and to confront some new challenges. Sleepless nights, endless conversations with loved ones and internal battles ensued…and the result was me deciding it was time for a career change: a bittersweet conclusion to say the least.

I have been blessed in my current job to work with some of Calgary’s best! My boss was a high energy, super successful businessman who provided the most unique and amazing environment to work in. He had an uncanny ability to attract good people: which was lucky for me, because I got to work with some pretty amazing women! Since moving to Calgary almost 4.5 years ago, these people had become my confidants, my support and most of all my friends (I often fondly refer to them as my Calgary family!). For those of you who have moved away from family, you know how difficult saying goodbye can be – last week was an emotional time for me.

Needless to say, I am enthusiastic and excited for the challenges that lie ahead of me. I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up…but I’m hoping this move gets me closer!

Until next time,
