I’m not sure what it is – the transition of winter to spring, having recently taken a real vacation for the first time in two years, or having made sustainable changes in other parts of my life – but I’m really craving a change in my life. Something big.
Part of me thinks I want a life change in terms of purchasing my first house or having a child, but I’ve done some serious thoughts this week and I don’t think either of those two things are what I desire right now (not that I don’t want these things in my life, but that my life will not end without them). What I’ve been thinking about is the Eastern coast of Canada. Somewhere I’ve never been but seems to be calling my name. Not for a road-trip or short vacation, but as a place to live.
I’ve start researching what sort of careers are available to me, what the cost of living would be, and if I could continue to pursue my other passions in these locations (baking, running, life with my dog).
The more I think about it, the more I want it and feel like it’s the right thing for me.
So even though the realistic (OK, maybe pessimistic?) part of me isn’t sure anything will come of this, I’m writing out a plan. And, who knows, maybe I’ll stumble into the next phase of my life, a change different from what I envisioned, but I have this strong feeling that I am about to evolve.
