"It's okay to be a glow-stick. Sometimes we need to break before we shine."
~ Author unknown
This weekend was a rollercoaster of emotions. On top of hearing no news about Grey's interview, we said goodbye to close friends who are moving to the East Coast and I made the decision to accept a teaching position here in the fall. Both Grey and I have done lots of reading to know that the silence isn't necessarily a bad thing, as he would have likely gotten a "no" if they weren't interested in him. But after years of having it be the opposite and on top of the other two events, we've both been down.
Sunday afternoon marked a transition. Grey spent most of the weekend resuming his job hunt and making connections with those who have contacts. He now knows how to play this game of networking, which I'm learning more about peripherally. But something has also broken. Maybe it's the fact that we are the last ones' standing from our originally group of friends or that the condo building drama is heating up again, but we're both more determined than ever to push for this transition. Finding the above quote while out for a walk was an added sign for this.
This weekend we cracked. Now it's time to shine.
