Has anyone seen my patience?

28 Feb

Patience is a virtue, they say. In some situations I amaze myself with the amount of patience I have. You need something untied and it’s a horrible mess? Give it to me and I’ll untangle it for you, no matter how long it takes.

So I do have patience. Well, some. Right now, I’m lacking patience though. I had a job interview last Thursday. It went great and I think I have a really good chance of getting it. But she had to interview about 4 other people, so I wouldn’t hear until during this week, to find out if I get a second interview.

It’s only Tuesday. I said to myself I shouldn’t expect to hear anything sooner than Wednesday. But I’m nervous. I want to know! I want this job, I’m the best person for it. And I think I really made that point during the interview. I couldn’t have done a better job than I did.

So I tell myself to stay calm, wait, be patient and be positive. Now if only I can get myself to listen to me.

Patience is a virtue. Who came up with that line?

Spring in the city

25 Feb

Wow, has it really been that long since I last wrote. My last post was made the day before I moved to my new home.

And here I am, in the house that now really feels like I belong here. I’ve grown to really like this city already, although I still haven’t seen half of it.

I’m happy here, I’m at peace. And that feels fantastic. Spring is in the air, radio is playing, coffee in my hand. My cat is happier than ever. The streets in my city are now filled with sunshine, people are out and about, the park is only 5 minutes from my house.

So I made the right decision coming here. It also changed other things in my life. I managed to lose 11 kilos since January, I go to the gym and I´m looking for a new job. I hate change, but once I get going I´m unstoppable!

Of course I still carry my demons with me. They´ll always be there. But I´m dealing with them now and that´s what life is all about.

You know what they say. Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it´s about learning how to dance in the rain.

And I´m learning.
