First I have to apologize. I have been completely neglecting my blogging. Life has thrown us some interesting curve balls recently and I am just trying to keep my head on straight and get done the stuff that needs to be gettin a done.
10 years ago I thought I knew what my future held. (I was going to be a teacher)
5 years ago I thought something completely different. (I was going to be a rich sales woman)
3 years ago I had an epiphany and well changed my ideas for the future. (We was going to be expats and spend years all over the world in different countries)
6 months ago I had a plan for life in Korea. (we were going to have a baby and raise it here to be bilingual)
1 month ago my mind started to get really confused about the future.
1 week ago all the plans for our future changed.
What I am getting at, is planning too far into the future really hinders you from living in the present and doing what you want and needs to be done.
Last week, Adam and I decided to give notice here in Korea, pack up…cancel our expat status and head back to America. My Mom is fighting this nasty battle with Cancer and I want to be closer so I can hug her and give her more personal encouragement, Adam is still finding it extremely difficult to find work here and our options are really minimal here.
So, in a week, we are packing, selling, tossing, and moving.
Adam and I were talking last night that we almost feel like immigrants. That at this point in our lives, America feels like the land of opportunity for us. We can find work in whatever field we want, we can bring up our child in a diverse nation with tons of opportunities. This is a very new outlook for us that we are excited to have. It has been a long time since we have thought this positive about life in the USA.
We are really excited for our new beginning. We have no idea where we want to settle, what state we want to raise our baby in, or even what we want to do with our future careers. All we know is that we have a billion options and are really excited to see where that takes us.
