After a lot of soul searching the last few weeks, I decided to get back with Geraldine and agree to her "Terms and Conditions" (for lack of a better word) for any future postings my company may have in store for me. I didn't want to be in a situation a few years down the road where I realise I turned away my only real chance of settling down for an expectation that did not materialise. After all, my company is not going to send me someone to grow old with so why should I give my full loyalty to them?
I used to think that my only real chance of getting anywhere and having any chance of competing with the bright young British Uni grads we employ was to not say no to anywhere my company may want to post me and to a great extent, this is true. However I also realise that I am not getting any younger. The above argument can stand if I was in my twenties. But in 5 years time I will be 40, and I don't want to look back then and feel regret.
So therefore, Geraldine and I are back together. I will be asking her to marry me and she's expecting this. However we're still a long way of getting anything settled or finalised but still, it's a start. The last few weeks have made me realise that she is the one for me. She will be coming with me to Malacca end of December so she'll get to meet the entire Sequerah clan! (a great way to start eh?). After all she is going to be a Sequerah soon.
I am whole again...
