It’s hard to believe that I have been an expat for 60 days. Time sure flies when you’re having fun. School started last week, and I have struggled to get back in the groove of things. I’ve literally been off since May, so my body has been on vacation mode for quite some time. But, I shall be fine in due time.
Over the last 60 days, I’ve accomplished quite a bit including:
1. Officially becoming a resident of the UAE,
2. Moving into my apartment,
3. Venturing out and exploring my new home,
4. Creating some amazing bonds with other expats and locals,
5. Developing a new normal.
I’m so glad that I took this leap. Although everyday hasn’t always been full of glitter and roses, every hurdle that I’ve had to overcome has strengthened me in more ways than one. And for that, I am grateful.
To say that God has been faithful would be an understatement. There have been situations to arise where I not only felt His hand, but also literally saw His hand work things out in my favor. And for that, I am grateful.
