Tomorrow I start a brand new full time job in another city, which means that I have to commute about 120 kilometers every day. Of course this makes it difficult for me to have my beloved doggy Lisen at home with me during the week days, so from today she will be staying with my sister while I am working. In turn, my sister's dog Diva will move to our mum. The reason for this arrangement is that Diva loves to spend time in my mum's garden on her own while Lisen prefers to have company when she is outside, this way both dogs get what they want. Either way, it is a big change for all of us.
But although I do have some mixed emotions about this particular part of the new era I am about to embark up on in my life, I do feel like I have made the right decision. I have been very fortunate to be able to work from home a lot the last couple of years and because of that I have been able to have Lisen with me 24/7. I have also been able to devote a lot of time to the creation and development of my blogs during this period, which I am very grateful for as well.
And speaking of my blogs, one thing that will not change is how I manage them. My ultimate goal with my blogs is still the same as it was when I first started to blog about two and a half years ago, to be able to live off of the money I make through them. And though I continue to see good results in that area, what I earn through them is not yet enough for me not to have another job.
So, though I am very excited to start this new journey tomorrow I am also very ambivalent because I will not have Lisen with me during the week days. Having said that, I have no doubt that Lisen will be well taken care of by my sister - whom I know loves her (almost) as much as I do. And because I have decided to ride the flow of the universe completely in my life, when this amazing opportunity came my way - there really only was one answer I could give. So despite these major changes in our lives right now, I am sure we all will be just fine. :-)
(If not, I will just have to quit my new job and bring Lisen back home with me. I really would you know. Hehe.)
