I will have to adjust the dates for this blog just a little bit. The truth is this journey started in January, but I have been extremely quiet about the journey.
- I don’t want to deal with disappointment
- I am in some major fixing it moments in my life
- I don’t want to be embarrassed
- and Finally, I like people to see the finished product…not the recipe.
So, i won’t go into a long blog…a couple of short ones. I want to be magical and say that my New Years visit to Dubai was LIFE-CHANGING…because everyone has that moment and its QUOTES…”LIFE-CHANGING”. For me, Dubai was wonderful. And I will do it again. And I won’t do it with the damn travel group I went with because they….sigh…ugh.
But there I realized that the middle east was an oasis of opportunities. Opportunities which were there, if you just took them. And I used to take opportunities. And I let a few bad experiences and my personal feelings about being a failure take me off that part of my journey and into the world of “just be okay. be grateful for where you are at.”
So in Dubai, I looked out the window at the desert rolling and I said, “I will do this. I will apply again to teach in this world. For me. Because I have so much more I want to do…and this is the road I will take to do it.”
So this journey started in January. The first of January to be exact. Happy New Year’s right? I knew that this would be the year that I lose an address and gain my world.
