Make Like A Tree And Leave

Life is a series of beginnings and endings. We leave one job to start another; we quit cities, countries, or continents for a fresh start; we leave lovers and begin new relationships. What was the last thing you contemplated leaving? What were the pros and cons? Have you made up your mind? What will you choose?

I have contemplated a fresh start and leaving behind things many a time. Things have been bad at one time or the other and at those times I have managed to stick it out and stay put. But that doesn’t mean that I should stay here where I am for the rest of my life. I could use a fresh start, go away and start anew in another place. Meet new people, change my old ways and develop new and better ones. Make new friendships and meet interesting new people and go to interesting new places and do things that I would never usually do.

A job is usually the one that most people change and will continue to change. At one point in time I just had to get out and after 4 years and 3 months it was time for a change for me if I wanted to keep my sanity. And also my temper; though I must say that the choice was kinds made for me and it was more of do I stay and keep fighting a lost cause or start afresh. I had to choose the latter but the problem was that it was the wrong decision at that time. I wish I had more time to decide and perhaps even 3-4 months more would have made a world of difference.

Leaving city, state and country and even the continent – what can I say? I would love to move out somewhere else and Canada would be my choice. I really would love to go and live there in one of the towns or cities that I have done some research on and seen a bit off on the internet. That would be lovely. Even if I can’t leave the country, just moving somewhere else would probably do me a world of good. I dunno if that is possible but if I do get a good job opportunity then it would be great.

And I would have to be in a relationship to even consider making a change. Or a change in my case would be is to have a relationship finally with someone and have a life finally.
