The first Weekly Photo Challenge of the year is to illustrate “New”…
We have been in the Philippines for almost a year now, time to already think about our next posting. The hubbie’s contract finishes next year, but finding a family mission in the humanitarian sector takes times… As we are getting
older wiser, there are more factors to take into consideration than the job itself: the education system, the health structure, and last but not least, the number of hours between our new home and the old European one (or at least a direct flight!). The Attilas are not babies anymore, I want to give them the chance to build memories with their grand parents and their cousins.
Soon enough, I’ll have to work on my resume again, reconnect on Linkedin, study the UN and EU job offers.. Keep my eyes and ears open to any new interesting opportunity. Always leaving room for all what makes my soul happy is essential to me, as all the jobs I have loved have always come to me “by chance”. I had never thought about becoming a TV producer nor an aid worker when I was a student. It all came to me when I decided to follow my instincts, to do things that fills my heart. Maybe time for a new career path? There are still lots of places on the planet where being in your early 40s does not ring like a mid life crisis, but sings like second half of opportunities,where you can do something good with what you know, be open to what you don’t and follow your bliss!
Inhale the future, exhale the past…
To a New Year, New breath, New chances.. When nothing is sure, everything is possible 🙂
