Forgive Me?

I feel terrible. It's been what? A little over 2 months and I'm just coming back here to give some proof of life. Of course, if you're also following me on Instagram, you know that I'm still here. But for those who have been wondering - I'm definitely alive and breathing.

Would it help if I told you that I've started a new job? I love it! I often wonder why I didn't leave my former job and take this step sooner. But I also believe that everything happens for a reason. And if I took this step now, it's because I was meant to do it now and not sooner. Perhaps I wouldn't have been mentally and physically prepared then.

Not that the job is stressful. As I said, I absolutely love it. It's something so different from what I used to do, but I feel like I'm adjusting well. After 2 months in, I still make little mistakes, but the way I know that I'm doing well is that I am actually able to recognize those mistakes on the spot and I auto-correct myself.

What is a little stressful about this job though is the commute. Believe it or not, some call me crazy for doing this, but the commute is actually 4 hours long daily. Two hours to get there in the morning and two hours to come home in the evening. Needless to say, once I get home in the evening it's eat-shower-sleep. I barely have any energy to do anything else. Much less think.

My husband likes to ask me from time to time how I feel about this and if it's worth it. But it is. It really is. Again, I love the job. The reality is, I'm not the only one doing this commute. We are thousands, which is why the train home can be a bit sardines-in-a-can like, which my anxiety hates. Fingers crossed, we can move closer in a few years. Perhaps when Baby Girl is off to college. But for now, I'm happy just the way it is. Again, it's worth it.

Soooooo I don't know when I'll be back here next. I've taken advantage of the fact that this was a long weekend. I've sadly taken a major step back from content creation, but I'm pleasantly surprised to see that so many of you continue to visit the blog as well as my other socials. It means a lot to me. We were actually in Milan last weekend, so I'm truly hoping I can write about it here soon. But no pressure, right?

Thanks for always being you and take care!

xoxo Elodie
