I feel so fortunate these days. I feel fortunate that I was able to put aside some funds, and make a life transition by moving back to Vancouver for a fresh start. I feel very fortunate to be from Vancouver and have a base here.
It has been easy to ease back into life in Vancouver, though on a new footing. I feel fortunate to be able to build on my history here together with my experiences abroad and make a fresh start. It is fun to create a new beginning, fun to have some fun money to enjoy this marvelous city and wonderful to be in a healthy and strong situation from which to do it. I am familiar with the area and am readily adjusting to physical and social changes that have occurred since I lived here in 2007.
I really appreciate what Vancouver has to offer. Today it has a great atmosphere. It has progressed culturally and socially. The city has been able to enhance the living experience further and further. There is space and opportunity for nature, recreation, exchange, rest, thought and work. Community services are growing and it is a culinary paradise, with cuisines from all over the world. There are a lot of cultural events.Overall, people are socially conscientious, kind and friendly. I feel comfortable, even going out alone; yet it is easy to make friends here.
In addition, I am well positioned to take advantage of what the city has to offer and move my life forward. I am back on the grid, having renewed my driver's license and requested a provincial resident's card. Because of that, I was able to get a library card. Luckily, there is a fantastic new recreational centre with a big pool, rink, library branch, fitness center and cafe at reasonable pruces not far from my place where I bought a pass.
Futhermore, I am making more steps to develop my own business. I spent time in the library reading about women and finances. I also posted my business card there. I have continued to introduce myself and my services around the district and put in business ads in local ethnic papers in three langages and in free English language websites. Moreover, I bought a decent laptop and it is all set up. It will be better for work and it is already proving to be a rich source of entertainment. I picked up DVD's and music CD's at the library. I feel confident that something will come out of these efforts.
Socially, I am making advances, too. I joined an online dating service for my age bracket and have been getting responses. It is fun to pour over possible matches and communicate a little. One guy in Metro Vancouver already asked me out. With this in mind, I ordered a new outfit online, and got a good deal for it.
Life is good in my universe, wherever the world is headed. Hopefully, I am helping to make positive influences around me, at least.
