I'm excited by new beginnings. It can be the beginning of a new career, relationship, a new living situation, etc. I become excited about being able to start something new.

Totally leaving your fiancee for a new career is not the best. I believe internal arrangement can be made without necessarily breaking from a relationship.
Having a new career is great because of the new experience to acquire as well as the remuneration.

I agree with you that it is not necessary to leave your fiancee in exchange of career. Both parties can work hand in hand. :D

I love new experiences and working with new people. It can be refreshing. But I wouldn't leave loved ones to do it.
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.


Grateful to get the opportunity to explore new books with those in the OBC.

Being given a blank slate to rewrite your wrongs and do things better is one of the greatest gifts in life.

So starting life somewhere new, be it work, family, school is thrilling to say the least.

There is always the excitement of starting something new, no matter what the activity. That being said, an activity or a new career that you are passionate about, is challenging, and can take you to the next level can last beyond that initial honeymoon of excitement.

It would be exciting because it broadens my horizon. It helps me acquire new things and skills that are specific to that trade. I love learning. A new environment could boost my mood as well.

Having a new career might present the possibility for satisfaction, but why do you have to leave the person you love for that. You didn't really love that person in the first place. If you wanted to walk it out a compromise could have been reached. You are driven by whatever has the potential to make you feel best and most secure, you also probably don't understand love, because if you did, abandoning it would never be an option. You also are a one sided fellow, why can't the two of you work it out?

Any change especially good change sparks excitement in me. However, I don't think I would leave my fiancee for a new career.

If I have the necessary skills and will be helping people, then I'd be excited. If it promises new beginnings and gives me more opportunities to travel or be with the ones I love, or even write, then I would take that career in a heartbeat. Of course, there's also the salary and benefits to consider, not to mention the location. After all, I'd much prefer the cold rather than the heat. I live in Texas during the summer, so I'm not a big fan.

New people, new places, new feelings and emotions. I dare to say I would be crazy to leave everyone for that drive, like Max did.
