Oh Canada

Today, I had to turn down an opportunity to do some things that involved spending 4-month of this year in Canada. I was fine with the rest of the work but spending such a long time in Canada, while my company is growing, was not a good idea. Therefore, I had to turn down the opportunity.

If I did not have other responsibilities and projects to do, this would have been an excellent opportunity to get paid to work on my limited French and travel North America for the first time in my life.

That said, I thought to myself that, things are really changing in my life this year. Ever since I left my old job, I have been inundated with opportunities to do lots of different things. If things go well this year, I should be wearing about half-a-dozen hats by the end of the year. That’s a lot of hats.

However, I see this as training for the big game. If I can learn to handle that many hats, I think I’ll be good to handle bigger things in the future. It helps that I get to pick and choose the things that I’d like to involve myself with, as it means that I get to do fun things that I enjoy.

All is good, as long as I don’t collapse under all that pressure.

(I’m still recovering from my exhaustion last week!)
