First, I want apologize for the delay in between the posts. We’re finally settling down in our new place. There has been a lot to do and find and buy to really get settled here and this is just the beginning. Which leads me to this amazing quote I found today.
For those of you who know me well enough, you know that I like to have a plan. I like to know what’s going to happen and when and sometimes it drives insane when I’m not in the know. Qatar is where I am learning that I don’t have to always have a plan.
I have prided myself on having a set schedule of going to work, coming home, spending time with Ryan, and doing it all over again the next day. Unfortunately for me, the job search hasn’t come as easily as I expected. There is a demand for higher education and experience than a person of my young age could have possibly achieved for a good paying job. It can be frustrating at times, but I’m learning from other people that it’s not impossible to obtain a good job here and it all lies within your network, patience and faith.
So during my search for a job, I am learning to just breathe and know that I will find something, just trust and know that Ryan is my support and my rock, let go of my anxiety of not knowing, and see what happens while I search and wait.
I am learning to enjoy my downtime and learning to fill that time with things that I never made time for before. Ryan has decided to come home to share his lunch breaks with me during the week and we both cherish that short time of each other’s midday company. Yesterday, I decided to make a Strawberry Pie. Ryan’s exact words to me today before we enjoyed the pie, “You never used to make pies back home!” Haha True statement… but to see the enjoyment of indulging in such a treat is enough to remind me that this is my opportunity to enjoy the sweeter things in life: moments shared, love and laughter, and sweet sweet strawberry pie!
