This post has updates on me falling in love and my job search.
I’m in Love!
A miracle that sometimes seemed remote if not impossible has happened. I have fallen in love!
I will not give any details to clue anyone to her identity, because she is not ready to appear on my blog. But I can say she feels it too; in fact, she was the first of us to say she was in love. I, as usual, got caught making plans. She, on the other hand, just said how she was feeling. Saturday, July third will forever be a special day. That was the day she and I admitted to each other how much we love each other.
As in all relationships there are things that need to be worked out before we can be together. But I’m so optimistic that things will wind up right. They couldn’t feel so amazingly good and not wind up working. I say that not because I believe in fate, but because I believe if you want something bad enough and you can control whether it happens, you will make it happen. I believe both of us are committed to making it happen. So, we will one day, hopefully soon, be together.
Readers of my blog will know I have been hoping for that one special person who was interested in forming the kind of magical relationship most of us dream of for a long time. Sitting here, I know I have found my partner. We aren’t perfect. We aren’t perfect together. We are perfect for each other. What else could anyone want?
I will, of course, have more to say about her and our relationship as the days and months pass. For now, I will leave the thrilling news here.
My Job Search
I have been wanting a new job for a long time. Now that things have settled at work, and because I may not be able to keep this job and be with her, I have really intensified my job search. The best case would be a remote job. That way, I could either live here or where she lives. Absent that, I will need to find a good job here or there. While it’s often very difficult for people with disabilities to find work, I have a good feeling about this. I’m not saying it will be easy. I’m not saying discrimination against me because I’m blind won’t make my job search take longer. I’m saying I have learned a lot in my current job. I have accomplished some things. I have closed the employment gap in my resume and held a job for more than three years. I have gained one additional certification so far. So, I feel like I will find a new job. I sure hope it happens soon. Not only do I want more professional challenge, but I need to figure this out as it’s a big piece as to how and when we can be together.
So, wish me luck with my job search. I’m a bit nervous about it and hopeful at the same time.
