Lately, I`ve been thinking.. Am I living the dream? The Canadian dream?
It`s been my long desire to travel abroad, to see beautiful places, to speak English with accent, and to eat different foods. Now, I`m here and I have satisfied all those dreams already….I think..I guess..It seems to.
But as time pass by and I live here a day longer, I realize a lot of things about life.
I read something in the internet that made me think and realize my goals. I wanted to travel and experience life abroad right, and now here I am. I wanted to get lots of pictures, I have enough already. But that`s not where it ends.
I said I wanted to live like a local, to not just be here take pictures and see stuffs that`s being a tourist… I wanted to EXPERIENCE everything like everything a local would do. I think that`s kinda hard to achieve since I`m only here for a short term but I am trying really hard..
The only thing that makes me scared and I don`t want to be so is to be attached so much to people I meet here… Like my aunties, friends, the places, the temperature, the surroundings, the church. Because I know that time will come where I have to leave this beautiful city, leave everything behind, the people, the cafe`s, downtown, the polite people here and go back to my home country. I am really scared to that, you know the feeling of missing something! That is really hard to do. It breaks my heart, I don`t want to cry..
I can say, I am getting used to everything now in here. I know places already. I know how things work already.
I am thankful for this opportunity, because I know that this will change me a lot into a better person, i will know myself better, i will recognize every culture in the world, and be bolder.
I understand life now..it`s all the same. It`s just the perspective and how the way you look at life.
Just make the most out of it.
live life to the fullest, but be sure to not forget to live life in accordance to God`s will.
