Since I share the good with you all, I’ll share the not so good:
A few days ago, 4 weeks to the day of receiving the job offer with Emirates, I got a call from them terminating the offer. I spent the next days doing everything in my power to find out why and trying to change the situation. Unfortunately, they would not release any information (including why this happened) other than “I am encouraged to reapply again in 6 months.” I have been planning my new life moving to Dubai for a full month now, so obviously this was devastating news. However, I will continue to preach the same beliefs whether things go “right” or “wrong” for me.
I truly believe everything happens for a reason. Whether that reason seems apparent in this moment or doesn’t make a drop of sense right now, it is part of a greater destiny. Potentially this job is still part of my destiny and I just needed to put the brakes on for a little while to prepare myself for the move. Life could be telling me “you got this, you know you already successfully received the offer, now just slow down a bit and try again when you’re ready”
Who knows what the reason could possibly be, but I will wait to find out. This is why I don’t like to specifically call anything “bad news” or “going wrong” because I’m sure it’s just altering my path to something greater ahead that I cannot foresee just yet. I will continue to stay positive and have my eyes open for what that next best thing could be 👀
