Happy April everyone! As I am sure you could tell by my last post, I have been a bit stressed lately trying to balance everything going on in my life, and this past month has been no different. March has been a bit of blur. I tried to focus on balancing as best as I could, focusing on schoolwork but still spending time with my friends. It is so easy for things to get off track for me though and slide off balance just as quickly as I obtained it. Sometimes, I guess we just need to take a step back and breathe.
With that said, I am glad that my busy March is behind me and there is a new month ahead! Changing seasons brings changing circumstances and new opportunities to grow, and this month is going to bring many exciting things my way, the first one being that the semester is almost over! That may not be exciting for some people, but this has been a pretty rough semester for me, so I will definitely be happy when it is finally over. This week is my final week of classes, and then I just have some papers to finish up and exams, and it will be over. Yay!!!
Plus, I have a few exciting things planned in the coming weeks once the semester has come to an end. I can’t give tons of details right now, but I can say that they may involve travel of some sort. Since travelling just so happens to be one of my favourite things to do in the world, I am really excited! Once April comes to a close, I will finally be free from schoolwork for a little while and get to enjoy the summer! More details about what the summer holds for me are coming soon…
Most importantly, I am starting to feel like myself again and content with where I am at and where I am going. Since I made the decision to alter the course of my life, so to speak, things have been a bit chaotic, from moving to Toronto and working to moving to Vancouver and going back to school, and with all of that chaos have been many feelings of uncertainty. I have constantly been questioning myself and the choices I have made, and even though in my heart I always have known that I have made the right decisions, sometimes that is still hard to accept on a daily basis when so many changes keep happening all around me.
But recently, for the first time in a very long time, I had the overwhelming feeling that I was going to be okay. That I had made the right calls, that I was in the right place, and that everything was going to work out and I was going to make it. After not having that feeling in a very long time, and having questioned myself for a long time, finally having this feeling felt pretty damn good.
And I don’t think it is going to go away anytime soon. As I mentioned, a new month brings many new opportunities. Big things are coming, and I am so grateful and thankful for all of you on this journey with me. Stay tuned for more. #chiaratakesvancouver
