Good afternoon, yes it is me and I am back! I have been neglecting my blog for a while now and I feel that its time to get back to it. Let me fill you all in on what has been happening in my life so far.
Well I have recently split up from my boyfriend of 4 years whom I moved to Madrid with. Now this was very hard, very hard indeed! I think it was a mixture between not having a permanent job, being away from my friends and family and trying to adjust to a new environment. But those were just on the surface and I guess it was just not meant to be.
So I was now left on my own in Madrid, not many friends, no family, cant speak the lingo very well… I decided I was going home. I checked flights, I arranged pick ups from the airport. I was set on going home. I was distraught and angry and I just wanted to be at home. But I didn’t book that flight, don’t ask me why, I just didn’t. I carried on with work and just with life in general. I began to think past the sadness which made me think about my own life and what I wanted. I did my classes with my students that are just perfect and enjoy learning, I walked past the shops, looked at the beautiful buildings and the awesome culture and watched people from afar…Why was I going home again?
What would I do at home? I would have to wait until September to start a teaching job in England. Yes my amazing friends and family are out there, but they can also come visit me here. Its cold there, and yes it is cold here too but not as cold as home. I decided I must stay!! I felt a relief that I had finally taken charge of my life and made decisions for myself. I feel empowered now that I now know where I am going in life and what I want to do, and I am happy with my decision to stay and enjoy this marvelous city. 🙂
I must end this blog post with some thank you’s. I would just like to say a huge thank you to my ex boyfriend who gave me the opportunity to be here and have these awesome experiences and I want to thank his wonderful family for doing everything they have done to help me out (and its a lot). They are truly fantastic people and I am happy that I had the chance to have them in my life.
To the future, and what great things it will bring for me and all of you. 🙂
