Where will you be in January?


Do you know where you will be in January?  Where you will be living?  What your job will be?  I don’t.  I don’t know if I’ll be in Paris or somewhere else.  I don’t know if I will be employed or not.  Or if I will be taking classes or not.  I don’t know.  I’d like to say that this is liberating but in truth it’s terrifying.  I want to find a job I love in a city I love.  I want so much.  What if I can’t find it?  What if I find nothing or have to compromise too much?  Some days it’s enough to make me want to hide under the covers all day.  But I can’t.  So I go to classes.  I apply to jobs.  I hope and dream and pray.  I try to embrace this uncertainty and to let go of control.  I try to have faith.  But damn is it hard sometimes!  Any advice?  How do you deal with uncertainty?

  1. I am feeling the same way as your are right now. I usually TRY and take it one step at a time. I try to think about what I can do in the next week that will help reduce my anxiety in the long run.

  2. Even in times of “certainty” things are not certain. Follow your dreams, do what you are passionate about & take this limbo time to take a little leap of faith.

    We’re doing just that. We’re scared & excited all at the same time, but know it’s the right thing regardless of where it takes us.

    Go for it girl!

  3. I’m actually in the same situation, but I like to think my dreams are what allow me to keep going. I know I can do anything, once you’ve lived abroad there pretty much isn’t anything to stop you from doing greater things. I was in France and remember being the poorest college student but even in those times I was living it up. Just keep doing what you love, keep exploring and loving all things french :)
