Happy Wednesday! Which is really Thursday since Friday is a stat!
I am naturally an
irrationally emotional highly sensitive person. Well, add in the stress of an unknown move around the corner, leaving a job I love, and some bad news….and you get a super emotional Carly.
This is pouty Carly. She makes appearances frequently.
Yesterday I sent my farewell email to my volunteers at work, and was blown away by the response. I received some of the most beautiful emails back which were so touching they led me to
tears sob fests. As emotional as it made me, they truly made me feel like all the hard work I have done these last two years was so incredibly worth it.
The bad news? I will save that for another day as it isn’t 100% confirmed quite yet.
Yesterdays roller coaster of emotions made me really reflect on how amazing my 3 years in Kelowna have been. Although I am so ready to leave, I can’t complain. These have been some of the best years of my life.
I met my amazing boyfriend
I started a job that taught me life is too short to stay in a position you hate. It was the most rewarding experience and a major, necessary, stepping stone.
I met some of the most important people in my life now. Chris had 5 roommates when we first met and they have become our family.
One is missing! He refused to be part of our Flinstone family.
I have learned many amazing things in this city such as how to snowboard, become highly independent, and how to drink wine like a champ.
This is how not to drink wine like a champ.
Most importantly, when I reflect on my time in this city, I am proud of myself. I am proud of the fact that I learned to fully trust someone in a relationship. I am proud of myself for not letting my distance from my friends and family allow me to slip back into my disordered eating habits. Mostly, I am proud of myself for never giving up in a new city, that at times, was excruciatingly lonely.
These next two weeks will now be a celebration of all that I have accomplished as well as all that is to come.
What have you accomplished in the last 5 years? What are you proud of? Are you an emotional disaster like me?
