“…One’s destination is never a place but rather a new way of looking at things.”
– Henry Miller
Only six days till I begin my new adventure. Though in all reality everyday could be seen and should be seen as an adventure. I am both very excited and nervous for the “new.” I am getting ready for everything possible. Even though it has been a short two months I cant believe that I am already less than a week away.
The best part of an adventure is not expecting it. One thing is for sure I did not expect many things in the past year. I do not plan too much in a long term mindset because there are so many possibilities. After graduation I had a degree and a certification. I knew one thing. I needed a job. So I applied to every possible teaching job. As the summer months moved along I began to miss learning (weird I know). So I decided to apply for grad school. I always have loved history but the programs for a masters in History are all very demanding…and I needed a job. So I choose a completely out of the blue degree. A degree I still enjoyed. As the summer was coming to an end and no job was in sight I began to make a decision to be happy in Texas. Then within a day or two I receive a job offer to teach at a private international (two things I love!) school. Within fourteen days I was in Florida. After a wonderful year (with LOTS of ups and downs) I found myself without a job but a wonderful opportunity presented by a friend. Now I find myself about to board a plane for Korea. This year I have found myself in places I never thought or desired I would be. God had a wonderful plan for me this year I cant wait for the next!
I look forward to getting to my destination to find new ways of looking at things. New ways at growing, loving, smiling, and simply living. Though it is all exciting new can also be scary. Though I have always been one to do things that scare me (as long as it is not bungee jumping or roller coasters) this is a big one.
I look forward to sharing with you the new I find at my destination.
Thanks for reading and following!
