W is for...Where Has The Time Gone?

 Saturday, April 28, 2012

I can't believe I've been here almost nine months already! Time sure does fly. The question that has been going around is: "If you knew then what you know now, would you have signed the contract?" My answer? Probably not. My first thought was I wish I'd known the whole truth about the struggles we'd face here. But then, I think, nah. I'm glad I wasn't told. Where I was mentally and spiritually a year ago, I wouldn't have signed up for more struggles. I was already struggling. God knew what He was doing. He knew I'd chicken out and not go.

I do not regret my move. I'm taking it all in, the good with the bad. I'm at a wonderful place in my life. Everything that has happened while here in Abu Dhabi is contributing to God's molding and transforming me. I'm not the same person I was a year ago. I'm better. Stronger. I've stepped out of my comfort zone and survived! Being outside of my zone isn't as bad as I thought. It's actually exhilarating. 

Nine months. Wow. I'm so looking forward to whatever these next 15 months will hold for me.

And now for some Arabic vocabulary...

Lol, I love your honesty. I've been reading the FB pages of the present and future EMTs and they can strike fear in your heart about the things that await in AD.
I just have to pop over and read your comments and I feel better bc I know that God is in charge.

Yes He is in charge. And you would be able to handle whatever comes your way cos of that attitude. :D

Thank you for your candid responses. It should be said that it's NOT going to be a cake walk but there are great adventures in the midst of it all.

Agreed, Reginia! And if you have a great support system & healthy ways to relieve stress, you'll survive & may even enjoy yourself in spite of. I'm doing things I thought I'd never get a chance to do. :D
