Hi friend! Thanks for meeting me on short notice. I’ve been so confused and problematic that I need to vent out. Let’s go sit by the window and chat for a while. 🙂
If we were having coffee right now… I’d tell you that I have my eyes set out on the new iPhone. It doesn’t matter what color I get. I just need to upgrade my 4s. It’s slowly dying on me. But financially speaking, I don’t think I need a new phone…
If we were having coffee right now… I’d share with you my plan to write a proper essay type piece (?) every end of the month. I’m thinking something political? Or maybe something related with my country. Just a little something every month that I’ve worked hard for. I just want to add a little something new to the blog.
If we were having coffee right now… I’d tell you that here comes the best part of my coffee date with you today. Here comes the great news! I got chosen as one of the few people in our company who has a chance to go work abroad. This is such good news. The chance of getting picked in the raffle is very small and by some miracle I got chosen.
As you may know however, my dad is sick. This complicates things for me. I am a very family oriented person and I can’t imagine leaving to go work abroad while my dad is sick. I can’t fathom being in another country when my dad needs me and when everything about his life is uncertain. I just can’t imagine myself leaving when I see him fighting for his life. He gave me my life and his life for us. I can’t repay him by leaving.
On the flip side, I think that this opportunity is once in a lifetime. I know that I had doubts and didn’t think that I’d get chosen but I did. I don’t want to let this chance go. I also want to try things for myself.
But to make matters worst, I’d also tell you that I want to quit my job. I have too many reasons to leave and the only reason holding me back is the chance to work abroad.
Now I’m confused and I don’t know what to do. Should I wait for this uncertain assignment or just leave the company?
If we were having coffee right now… I’d tell you I really need your opinion and I’d want to know what you think I should do. I’m confused and right now I’m just settling. It’s not something I normally do and I’m not comfortable with it. I’d love to know what you have to say in the comments and I hope you have a better week than mine. 🙂
Until next week,
