The last article I wrote was all about my goal of moving to Japan next year as an English Teacher or ALT (Assistant Language Teacher). I wrote about how that goal has given me the impetus to set more short term goals in order to improve myself and my life. It’s given me the kick up the ass that I needed to really focus on something.
What I didn’t really talk about is how that decision has impacted my partner.
During the two weeks following the article quite a few things have happened; but the main thing that I want to talk to you about is what took place between my partner and I. It wasn’t unexpected and happened pretty organically, but it nonetheless highlighted a few key differences in the way we think and how we handle the idea of change, challenge and goal setting.
I’m an Optimist. I always have been.
