So I just won the ListServe lottery... Pretty good timing considering that I am going through a completely new chapter of my life.
I have just migrated to Toronto (Dubai being my previous home).
Love the city, love the country
Love the people: they are so welcoming and polite
Love the social welfare system here which provides opportunities for everyone that we couldn't imagine in most other countries
However, quitting a high-paying job, moving halfway across the world and looking for another suitable job in a completely unknown country is difficult, maybe even at times frustrating.
What I have learned is that one needs to stick in there, use all available resources, and keep their chin up.
So here's to having fun while looking for a job in Toronto!
I would like to end on my absolute favourite piece of advice I have ever received from the internet. I present to you ""The 5 Rules of Happiness"":
1. Free your heart from hatred
2. Free your mind from worries
3. Live simply
4. Give more
5. Expect less
PS: If you have any connections in Toronto who wouldn't mind connecting with a new immigrant on a professional front, or would just like to share some tips and tricks, I would be extremely grateful.
