Each day since this proposal, at least one of my managers has approached me and assured me that they "are working on it" and "talking about it" and it's "not a no" yet. Yesterday I was feeling very optimistic about everything feeling like I might receive a response and it might be in my favor. That did not happen.
As much as I'm trying not to stress because it isn't in my hands right now, it's difficult, because it is causing me anxiety no matter how hard I try to pretend it's not. I am impatient to begin with...and this is a pretty big thing to be waiting on. However, I keep trying to remind myself that the longer it takes, probably the better the outcome will be because it means they are working on it and trying to come up with a solution. They aren't just saying "no."
Either way, we have a lot of work to do and heaps of decisions to make. For now, I'm just trying to remain optimistic and put my trust in my belief that whatever is best for us will be.
