Changes – A New Beginning
Having just returned home to Ottawa after spending Christmas in Jamaica, I am now ready to face my next challenge which will involve moving out of the home I’ve shared with my friends Eileen and Dave for the past 18 months. As I mentioned in my previous post, our friendship has started to suffer which I know is due to us living together. Regardless of how well you think you know people, there’s a big difference in being friends and living together.
I had told them I was planning the move when I returned home from Jamaica. At the time, this was not taken too well and when I return home today, I will no doubt have to face a certain amount of animosity. How this affects our continuing to be friends will be entirely up to them. I hate conflict and usually try to avoid it, but this time I’m prepared to face it head on and to hell with the consequences.
I learned something on this latest trip – a philosophy that the Jamaicans have – that in life there are no problems, only situations!
Happy New Year! “Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.”
that’s the way I see it.
