It took me a few months to realize this. But this is my second chance at living life differently! I never wanted to stay in Singapore. I never wanted to be a military wife, I never wanted to settle for less than enough. But I gave up alot of what I wanted for family.
Its interesting how life has turned out. The event that brought me the most pain thus far in life is now also the one that has freed me.
At 28, I now have this liberty to dream of doing anything I want. Its almost too good to be true but then it is!!
Thinking back on the past, I’ve definitely made certain decisions out of spontaneity and I don’t regret any of them. Just because certain decisions have led to less than likely outcomes doesn’t mean they shouldn’t have happened. Every event teaches us a lesson we had to.
Some people ask if I regret marrying my ex. And I can’t lie and say I don’t have those days. But just because things ended in this way doesn’t mean they were all a lie. When we were together, all the moments we shared were real. They were genuine. They were heartfelt. They’re also, over. I don’t see our marriage as a failure, and he will still be an important person in my life. So really, us separating is a chance for me to live my life in a completely different way.
One that I could only dream of. Friends who know me will probably vouch for how free spirited I am. And traveling for these few months has renewed a child-like passion in me, for the world out there. I have come across so many people who have shared their stories with me. There is so much I want to do… To feel… To touch…. To create.
I am beyond excited for this second chance in life!!!! And I can’t wait to see what’s in store for me. 🙂
My journey has been taking me through a little of Berlin, Paris, and I’m going to be in the UK and Spain next. For everyone of you who have reached out to say kind words and offer hugs, thank you. I am so grateful for your love and I carry your well wishes with me everyday.
I hope to see as many of you as I can when I’m back. But it will be awhile before then, so 😚😚😚😚😚😚 I miss all of you back home. See you soon.
