I am one of those people that uses the “if it’s meant to be” thing when I can’t explain things. I’ve also been known to use it when things don’t go my way or when I don’t get what I’m looking for. I know that scientist can’t explain everything in the world and I can’t explain everything that goes on in my life. I don’t think even a rocket scientist could explain everything that goes on in my life.
Yesterday I got the call from that company I told you about a couple of days ago. This is the company that I had four interviews in a span of about six weeks. At the end of the last interview they informed me that the position would now require me to relocate out of state. I told them I would move if the position was offered to me. They told me that I would be hearing from them in the next few days.
Well I got the call yesterday. I had the feeling that I would be offered the job but I didn’t have a clue about the relocation package that they would be offering. Let’s face it, it’s not cheap to move and when you add breaking a lease on top of that it can get really expensive. I guess I’m also scared of starting over in a brand new city and state. I know that I’m a grown man and I should be excited about this, but it is still scary.
After discussing a few things over a couple of call we came to an agreement. I’m moving to a new state and starting a new job. I guess it hasn’t taken too long but it certainly has been long enough for this new chapter in my life to begin. I will be meeting new people and going to new places that will enrich my life in a whole new way. I am very nervous about this new endeavor that I’m beginning. I guess it’s the fear of the unknown that is giving me all these butterflies in my stomach.
So now it is time to pack it all up again. Once more I move to begin a new life. It seems that I have done this more than most people I know. I thought that when I moved here I was doing the right thing but the circumstances changed and now I move with some trepidation but I know that this is a good thing. There are so many things I need to take care of in the next few weeks and that has my mind racing a million miles an hour. I know that this will give me plenty of things to write about and that is a good thing. I just hope that they are posts of success and happiness.
We will face unexpected changes in our live and we must conquer the fear that comes from those changes. Sometimes life throws us a curve ball and we just have to take a swing at it. We must take on the opportunities that appear in front of us because living life thinking of what might have been is no way to live.
