Things are coming along. Phew! I’m glad to say I’m in much better spirits today than I was when I last wrote. In fact, I’m quite excited about the turn that things have been taking in my life. The Acadian and I are waiting on final confirmation that we’ve been accepted as tenants into a building smack dab in downtown Toronto. Our fingers are crossed, and we’re both looking forward to being in a new place at the center of it all. It’s quite different from where we live now, pretty much in the suburbs where getting around without a car can be a bit of a frustration. But this is also where I have been for most of the 12 years I have lived in Toronto, and I figure that after so long, it’s about time that I give downtown living a try. If the sampling I got while visiting the Acadian in the downtown digs he lived in when we first started dating are any indicator, I think I’m really going to enjoy this! Now if only we could get that call telling us we’re in…
Another first for me today (well, the first in a few years anyhow): a job interview. Instead of dragging myself to an office to convince someone to give me a job that I desperately don’t want, I strolled through one of the city’s historic districts into a lovely jewelery and accessory boutique to chat about a job as a sales associate that I would very much love to have. How refreshing to have a nice chat with the manager and have a peek at all the great pieces in the showcases instead of answering the typical “give me a situation where…” interview questions I’d grown so accustomed to.
The sun was shinning today, both literally and figuratively. After my interview, I wandered into a nearby cafe and sat outside for a while to enjoy not just the beautiful day, but that moment. Things are finally moving forward. For months, it seems as though I have just been floating around, trying desperately to move along in my life but not budging an inch. Now, it seems as things are evolving; nothing is forced, just simply moving along in a way that feels right. Perhaps part of my problem was that I wanted the newness without being willing to give up the old. The old neighborhood. The old routine. The old thought patterns and perceptions about the world and how it perceives me. Some things are easier to leave behind than others, but this I am sure of: things are a-changin’.This post may contain affiliate links.
