Where does this stroll on the beach take me?

Where do I go from here?

Do I move to Los Angeles to pick up that lucrative job I was offered, or do I marry David and move to New York with him? I’m so confused right now.

I wish I could enjoy the peaceful scene on this cold beach forever!

I wish there could be a sign in this ocean wave to direct my way!

I live in Miami while my man works in New York. We have been dating for 4 years and we are so in love. He came into town last week and at last, he popped the question I have been waiting for all these years. “Roselyn, will you marry me?” he said. I was so happy to say yes and we started planning our wedding.

I love my man and would love to live with him forever but, I also want a good job.

Two days ago, I got a call from a company I did an interview with a few months ago. I was offered a lucrative job appointment. The same week my man proposed to me.

I was highly elated to be appointed the Marketing Manager of a business firm until I was told I will have to move to their headquarters in Los Angeles. This was a dream come true for me cause I don’t have a job for some years.

This is a very big dilemma as I am so confused right now.

What do I do?
