Living in the moment


Why do I have such a hard time living in the moment enjoying today and what it brings? I am being real honest here, it is one of my biggest struggles. Living away I was always looking forward to the next trip, the next place to explore, the next fun event, the next time to do something with foreign friends…ehh!!! It’s the same here, I find it hard to just enjoy today. And then, if we were doing that I was the opposite because I didn’t want it to end…I wanted TIME to stand still to savour EVERY moment and every experience that opportunity brought.

This week so far, Yesterday and today has been cool and overcast…and I admit, I’m a little mopey! I could busy myself with “inside” projects. I have a few BUT I don’t want to. I want to be outside. I want to do something, GO somewhere, I want an ADVENTURE!!!

I am looking forward to the end of the week. David starts vacation for 2 weeks and every morning I wake up counting the days!!! I want some fun, quality time with my husband doing some fun things.

I really need to try harder…I am thankful, oh YES I’m thankful for the moments, that’s not it…

Hope you’re enjoying TODAY!

Adventure For Two

I am from Bridgewater, Nova Scotia, Canada and I'm back from traveling with my husband on an expat assignment to foreign lands. 2011-2012 we were in Shenyang, China. Spring 2012- Spring 2013 we were in Resende,RJ Brazil then back to Shenyang, China in July 2013 until the end of July 2014. Expat life WAS amazing! Adventure abounds no matter where we travel to. We really enjoyed the amazing opportunity to live and experience culture and tradition in these places. BUT now we are finished and adjusting to life in our small town in Canada. Our days of travel and adventure are not over.
