So much has been happening this year, and it just keeps going.
I had a feeling that it would be a big year for Gregor and I, and that’s what it’s been. A big year. In captial letters. BIG.
Next week, Gregor will move in.
He still hasn’t found a new job despite all his job hunting. There’s not much point for him to hang on to Auckland any longer so why not to try his luck here. And hopefully find it!
Funny really how things work out. One of our goals at the outset of the year was to move in together. With the intent that I would move up to Auckland.
Instead, it’s Gregor making the big move. Into a very different life. It’s a huge change for him in so many ways. City, climate, housing, lifestyle. But with change comes opportunity. And I will certainly do my bit for us to have the best possible life here for us.
Not so much a big change but a big achievement for me is that in a couple of months, I’ll be taking up NZ citizenship. My application’s been approved and now I’m waiting to be allocated a citizenship ceremony to do my affirmation.
This was another big goal that I’m now quite confident I will achieve.
At work, it’s really difficult at them moment. Think of 1500 people not exactly knowing what their role is in the post restructure world that we now work in.
All I know that my job will be very different in future. I just hope that it’ll play to my strengths.
My self designed health programme that I’ve started in April and have been further developing ever since continues to be a huge success. It’s quite costly and time consuming, but so worth it.
Every day is filled with new learning and experiences, some challenging, but always rewarding.
When I set myself a goal a couple of years ago for my life to change in some way to give me much better quality of life, I had envisaged a move, more money, a better home.
None of this has happened.
But what has is that I have changed. My body, my mind, my spirit. And with it my quality of life. For the better. Much better.
My life isn’t easy. Who’s life is, really.
But I’m loving it. And whatever may come will be just right for me.
