I’m moving. A little while ago I applied for a nursing job in the Yukon, 5500 km away from home. Well, I got the job and in a few weeks I start my new life. My feelings have been all over – excited, scared, sad, happy, nervous, etc. The job sounds amazing, and looks like a great opportunity to grow as a nurse. The community sounds great too; everyone up there I have spoken to says the same thing, “You’ll love it and never want to leave!” I’ve always wanted to live in a smaller community up north, and I have moments where I just can’t believe this is actually happening. I feel like this is a once in a lifetime opportunity, and I’m blessed to have the chance to do it.
But… I’m really going to miss everyone back home. Saying goodbye to everyone at work yesterday was really hard. Saying goodbye to my family will be even harder. I plan on flying home to visit when I can and I am going to become an avid Skype user. I think it’ll work out.
Wish me luck!
