I cannot believe how quickly things fall together and roll along after you’ve received the news you’ve waited months to hear.
We’re approved, well I’m approved to move to England! It’s a superbly wonderful and terribly frightening thing! Ha. But really though, it’s both. I’m excited and absolutely ready to be with Si, but also quite sad to be leaving people I love so very much, behind here in the states. It is, however the next step in this adventure, one that I need to take not only for myself but also for me and Si as a couple. It’s not the easiest thing I’ve ever done but in that same breath, it isn’t the hardest thing I’ve ever gone through.
When I take a step back and look at all of this, the full scale of our decision and this adventure we’re embarking on, I’m happy. I’m really happy. I’m also scared, anxious, ecstatic, bouncy, and incredibly annoying (lol). S’true. The closer my departure date gets, the more emotions I seem to feel and the more I seem to survey the severity, the finality of the decisions we’ve made. After all of the review, after all of the typically female over analysis, I stand firm in my heart and more importantly in my gut, that we’ve made the right decision. And man does that feel gooood. (additional o’s added for emphasis)
No, it wasn’t an easy decision and no, it isn’t going to be the world’s easiest transition, but I feel positive and hopeful for this journey we’re embarking on together. I feel happy and contented, calm (for the most part) and assured. To break it down, this is right and I not only say this to share it with all of you, but to also remind myself that it’s okay to be happy, to feel excitement, and to look forward to a life filled with the love of a good man by my side.
It’s also okay to feel scared, nervous, and sad about the happy decisions you’ve made because, well, I suppose that’s a part of life, too.
*My officially official (for real this time) last day of work is May 30 and plans are set for me to fly out the first week of June. Um, I believe the appropriate response here would be: Eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeek! 😉
