Couldn’t be happier with my new life
In less than a week my life completely changed. After 2 months trying to negotiate at my former company about new working schedule or any better working conditions, I needed to take the tough decision to quit.
I could never have imagined that it would have been so tough. But I knew it was the right thing to do at the moment I got a good news from the University I was already studying my Masters degree. They got me a scholarship and so I needed to review my whole calendar and again, leave some things behind. My friends ask me, did your colleagues cried when you left? I say, nooooo, I did! hahaha
It was sad for me, because I have been working with amazing people in China for the past 3 years. And I learned so much from them. Even on those days I wanna kill someone at a meeting table, even those days are precious.
Anyhow, that was one day I simply said to myself: “enough”. I wasn’t feeling like they were caring enough, and I didn’t want that for my life anymore. No space for growth, and was an act of respect. I staid one day again with absolutely nothing to do in my apartment. And it didn’t make me comfortable. The next day everything changed. Suddenly I was at my new job, which is this incredible part time job at the University’s video lab and communication office. People are even more amazing, and that is making everything in my life go on smoother. I am so lucky to have this opportunity. And in some point of view it can be really scaring because I am again leaving a city where I already knew everything. The pros and cons. Now everything is new again.
I like this feeling of freedom, which can be scary for some people or even seam some kind of craziness. But that’s how I learned to live my life. Letting go.
