Cause I can’t.
I’ve got five days left at work, 18 days until I fly to Bali, 21 days until I turn 30 and 31 days until we move into our new apartment in Auckland.
I feel a mixture of emotion – I’m happy, excited, thrilled and also quite sad because I really don’t want to leave the friends, my colleagues and my job. I’ve been interviewing candidates to replace me in my role and during an interview with a candidate we’ve offered the role to, I remember getting this sinking feeling that it’s really happening. This chick is taking my job. I’ve actually got just over a week left before everything changes.
The world has gone a bit crazy over Coronavirus (Covid-19) and who could blame them? It’s scary. I don’t think there’s been pandemic this size in my lifetime so I can understand the panic, the fear and the constant coverage and discussion about it. I’ve been pretty relaxed about it and not letting it get to me and I think I’ve done well. But with our travel plans coming up, I can’t help but feel a small sense of anxiety. And I think that’s normal. But anyways, Coronavirus isn’t the point of this post.
The point of this post is that time has flown by VERY quickly and I’m excited. Bali is going to be great. I’ve got a job interview on Monday and I’m actually quite excited about that too and it’s kind of scaring me how positive I’m feeling. Not going to lie, I really want it and I can only do my best. I can’t wait to move into our beautiful apartment in central Auckland and have more space than we do now. I just can’t wait.
Despite the stresses that’s going to occur from now to then with packing, organising and saying goodbye, I’m feeling very positive. I think life is going on the right track for me and I don’t say that lightly. I think in tough times, the best thing we can do is to be positive, stay updated and smile. It may be scary times but let’s not forget, a little kindness and a small smile makes a whole lot of difference.
Here’s to the future. Take care, keep safe and stay positive!
