People ask me; Aren’t you scared? How can you leave your family? Yes, If you really think about it, the world can be a big scary place, and it’s hard to say good bye to loved ones and battle the world alone! THANK YOU VERY MUCH FOR REMINDING ME! :)
The clue is to stay focused. I'm not going out into "the world", I'm going to a specific street, where specific people live, a specific university, a specific gorgeous apartment, a specific routine I’ve set for myself. To a life I know, love and want. I’m asking for this. I know what I’m getting into.
Besides, there always seems to be just the right song to give me the energy and courage I need... I can dance away any worry! :)
Also, looking back to each one of the cities that I have gone, I've always found a few great friends that I now consider sisters! Ladies who were doing similar things, and we met in a specific time and place that life set out for us!
I find courage in airports, something about them excites me! People in transition…
When I moved to
To my surprise, she finished the entire cup of coffee without even the smallest facial expression of disgust! We burst out laughing and asked if she tasted the salt?!!!
She seemed relieved, and looking around for pastry to take away the disgusting coffee-salt taste, she admitted that it tasted very weird but since it was my fist time making Italian coffee, she assumed I didn’t know how to make Italian coffee yet, and didn't want to offend me...
I didn’t know how to respond to that! She drank salted coffee in order to not hurt my feelings? Woooooow… That’s
I may be taking this huge step alone, and it's a scary one, but if history has taught me anything, is that there are amazing people there already, and a good life, and good friendships await me :) I just need to stay focused on the good, have my bases covered, and take those steps forward.
Let's hope for the best, and you’re welcome to my home for coffee anytime!... I’ll hide the salt :)
