Jump & You will see…

via Daily Prompt: Jump

This is in response to The Daily Post: Jump 

“To succeed, jump as quickly at opportunities as you do at conclusions”  by Benjamin Franklin.

More than a year ago we were living in the beautiful Land of the Long White Cloud but almost live in somewhere else before the other opportunity unfolds as quickly as the snow melts in a hot sun.  Some people are shocked to understand why we have chosen to come to the Land of the Desert & Opportunities instead of The land of the Giants .  

As per the quote above and my older post LINK here… you gotta be quick when opportunity knocks on your door.  Not everybody can have this chance in life!  Let’s say it is the best chances we’ve got over the two “lands”, besides this is only temporary.  We will go back as soon as we finish here.  Try to be patient and be positive that’s the name of the game.

So why not JUMP in?  Besides….

“Just like seasons… People CHANGE.”

It started to get warm in Abu Dhabi.  The sun rises early the cool weather only at night time.  With this… emotions tend to change as well.  This is LIFE.

New Culture

Ramadan notice SDC15425

Embarking to a new culture is not something to say easy but accepting it helps.  Some people tends to ignore it and just do as they please without thinking of the consequences and I have to say I am surprise to see some Women dressed inappropriately (not the locals of course) especially in the Holy month of Ramadan where notices saying no sleeveless, short shorts or skimpy clothing was allowed and I wonder if those women didn’t take time to read and throw the letter of the hotels notifying them about it or just playing blind ignoring the notices in every door of every establishments or building.  I believe there is a time to flaunt and a time to pay respect especially to a country very different in culture than yours.

Celebrating Eid al Fitr – a celebration of breaking the fast and I have seen people giving gifts of different types of dates in colours and tastes. They tend to wear nicer or new clothes and giving donations in terms of clothing or toys that you can see anywhere in the malls or any participating establishments.  It is actually a feast of the sights and senses. Happiness is in the air especially for children same thing happens when it is Christmas time.  So yes there is a similarity. I am still like a tourist in this Country, enjoying every minute of it and trying to be positive in every way.  Same thing with the plant … SDC15364 how can they withstand the heat of summer in a desert country?  You don’t want to be outside for long I tell you… Anyway, I remember my husband always says similar to this quote… quote from gingersnapsorganic.com

It’s “Plane” enough…

Quote:  “You can’t buy HAPPINESS, but you can buy a plane ticket and that’s kind of the same thing”

Yes sure, indeed.  I have bought  so many plane tickets in my life. Travelling is my passion.  But this ticket is very special.  A one-way ticket to a new life, new adventure and one that will bind all of us again as a family.

But before the anticipation and excitement, there are a lot of jobs to do around the house, planning, packing, selling, storing and I am not sure which is going to be the first as thinking about it overwhelms me sometimes.  Plus an active 6-year-old boy for me to teach, feed, care and entertain.  Perhaps my husband believes in my abilities to juggle everything and yes I am still working full-time.  Soon it will be over, though.  I have handed my resignation.  I am quite relieved actually now that it happened than what I thought it would be.

I am looking forward to a new ME.

For sure, the life I will have will be very far different from what I used to. But hey, I am really anticipating to be pampered a little more than usual. To have more ME time and my main focus now is just one thing FAMILY.

To sum, it up…

My BIG deal month of MAY

Now I can finally tell my story why I am even here doing blogging.  First to express my feelings as what they said just write and it can come or will flow naturally… so here goes.

Yes it sure is my big deal month of May as this is the month that i think my life will change… I hope for the better and for the sake of the family.

Now, how can you describe the feeling of fear, anticipation and excitement at the same time and sometimes one after another?  It depends on my mood of the day haha!  I am in a mixed of all these emotions and perhaps the first two feelings for the past 2 years!  Now adding excitement to the mix is somehow makes it better or sound positive. Let me explain as perhaps some of you will scratch their head and say “Duh?”… or some can relate and know what I mean.

Fear – as I have a good job that I love with a good pay is not something I can discard after 8 years just to follow someone else dreams. Fear of losing this comfort is giving me a hard time giving this up plus living in one of the beautiful Country in the World which is New Zealand somehow makes me think is there a better life and opportunity elsewhere that I will feel comfortable and be happy?

Anticipation – WELL … part of me really anticipates this new transition in life.  From expecting to live in Switzerland then Australia then now Middle East! (Secret location wink! haha! follow me so you may know).  I have so many words to describe this feelings… “butterfly in the stomach”, “tossing and turning in bed” as I over think what will the future be… for me (I am not being selfish here as I know for my hubby and son they will be alright). This type of feeling also creates some “drama” as the more I anticipate something good or bad the more I want some reassurances that everything will be fine.

Excitement – This is how I can describe my feelings now a days … so I borrow this lines below… yep I need to google and see how best to describe me… well this is after some time. I have to be brave and need to overcome my fear as it is surely better to feel excited than fearing something unknown. And yes i finally realized I am getting excited!

“Don’t you long for something different to happen, something so exciting and new it carries you along with it like a great tide, something that lets your life blaze and burn so the whole world can see it?”

To sum it all up… another quote… Yes please!…
