How I’m Moving Forward
I love making plans and dreaming and thinking of things I would love to do. And, although I have felt stuck over the last couple of years, I really feel like I’m moving forward with my life. I’m beginning to make changes and work towards the dreams that I have.
Moving home to New Zealand felt like a step in the right direction. At the time, that is.
I got a really good job, had a supportive environment and felt ready to give everything I had to my job. However, as time went on I started to feel like I was just passing time. I didn’t feel like I was getting anywhere. I loved my job, I had an amazing class, my colleagues were awesome, but I just felt like I was moving backwards.
How did I start to move forward?
I quit my job, enrolled to do my postgrad part-time, started relief teaching, and started to apply for jobs in Europe. So far, I have had a couple of interviews, and I hope to hear back from one soon! Since I’m not working full I’m having a lot more time to focus on my blog, starting with scheduling posts, drafting ideas and thinking about where I want my blog to take me. I currently have some really exciting ideas, however, if they ever eventuate you’ll never know. Maybe I’ll talk about these ideas in a later post!
I’m ready to go…like right now.
I feel like since I’m single, ready to mingle and in my late twenties (I was going to say early-twenties, but then realised I’m actually 28 now), I’m ready to step out once more into the world. I did that once before when I moved to England and I loved it. It is hard moving overseas by yourself, but it is such an experience. You make life-long friends, you experience things in such a different way. Luckily I had one or two people I knew before I moved, and one of my teaching friends actually ended up moving at the same time and we somehow moved in across the road from each other without realising! And we ended up in the same little town too. So, I guess I wasn’t completely alone.
What did I learn from moving overseas?
Moving overseas taught me so many things about myself. It taught me to be brave really. And now I’m ready to do that again. This time it will not be to England. In a way, I was kind of hoping to end up in London again, but that isn’t going to happen because of visas.
So, in the future, I am hoping to do quite a few things! (Of course).
Moving forward, I hope to become an ‘expert’ in Education. My friend and I call those people who go around to different schools, or help to develop curriculums and programmes, ‘experts’. I’d love to stay living overseas (although I may move home to NZ someday) for an extended period of time. I’d love to move my blog forward, which is something I am starting to do now!
What are some things you are hoping to do this year, or in the near/distant future? Where do you see your life going?
