Okay…so of course you haven’t missed me. What am I thinking? I’ve been waiting to write my next blog post because I have so much going on in my life and mind and heart. Since the last post I’ve accomplished a goal that I set out for myself a few years ago and I have a very close crew that helped me celebrate. I just can’t express how fulfilling it is to set a goal and accomplish it. I’m truly elated. I know you’re wondering exactly what that goal is…you also know (if you’ve read my blogs) that I like to leave people guessing.
On that note, what’s next for me? More travel of course. I’m heading to the hot and humid state of Florida next weekend. I can’t wait to reconnect with my office mate from Doha and dear friend Sharmane as I join in celebrating her marriage. It’s always an honor to be included in such events. I’m so happy for the two of them and can’t wait to see her and meet her husband! I’ll be staying at a nice resort so I’ll have a long weekend of reminiscing about my days abroad. I’m looking forward to relaxation, good food, and good company!
The end of September I will finally get to visit Vancouver BC. I’ve heard nothing but great things about that gorgeous city and I can’t wait! I feel so alive when I get to travel and experience new cities. Truly travel heals my soul. I’m currently considering Christmas in NY. It’ll be my first visit to the Big Apple and I’ll take the kid with me. I have this dreamy idea of spending the holiday season in the New York…maybe I’m crazy. If I go, I’ll get to see my all time favorite Jazz artist, Chris Botti. It would be my 4th time seeing him live. Man does he put on a great show!
The other thing is the kid is starting high school tomorrow…yeah. I’m not real sure how I’m feeling about that. Where has the time gone? It’s crazy seeing him grow up. I’m so proud of him. He’s a good kid with a good heart. I guess he’ll be just fine.
Lastly, I’ve been in a continuous state of self reflection. Have you ever been in such a space? It can be so rewarding and scary at the same time. Happiness…I know it. Content, I know it. Fulfillment…I know it.
I’m still living life and it’s so so so good!
