I’m feeling pretty good about the end of the year. We’ve had a lot of planning to do, more than I could’ve ever expected. But our visa is about to expire and as such, we have to leave the country to get a new one. That, as well as sell our big furniture items, pack up stuff, try to SHIP our stuff (that’s been an interesting adventure), as well as have our paperwork in order. Who would’ve thought living overseas could be so weird.
Okay, yeah, I knew living overseas would present some unique challenges. But honestly, coming into an adventure like this, you truly have no idea what you’re in store for. If I would’ve known half of what I know now back then. . . well, let’s just say I would’ve had some reservations.
But I’m NOT complaining, really! I’m LEARNING, and there’s a difference. It’s all about your attitude- and I believe my attitude is still good. A quote I like and cling to often is:
The one thing in life you CAN control is your attitude.
It’s really true! You do have control over how you respond to things- even ugly, overwhelming things. So I choose to look at all the things around me with a good attitude.
