my life right now!
this is not to brag, this is simply stating how my life is and feels right now. I'm feeling lucky and time is definitely on my side. What I'm experiencing in my "new life in Sweden".
Living in a Foreign Country-Experiencing a new and different perspective on life.
Learning a new Language - Challenging, but now, finally exciting.
Time to Read. This week I've been simultaneously been reading "Commited" and "Marketing 2.0", along with studying my Swedish language books
Time to Read Emails- when I was working my 40 plus work weeks, I have to admit, I didn't have time, or perhaps I just didn't make the time to read my emails (fully). Now, I can relax, sip on some hot green tea and carefully peruse my incoming emails. Heck, I even have time to read thru newsletters I've signed up for in the past.
Time to Travel- So far in the last few months I've made my way to several beautiful islands in Sweden,
Opportunity to Hang out With People From Different Countries/Cultures: Through my Swedish Language Course, I have the opportunity to befriend people from countries including: Iraq (and that's a tough one being American), Philippines, Mexico, Thailand, Kosovo, Lithuania, Ethiopia, China, Vietnam, Canada and more. I seriously doubt had I not been put in this situation, had any of us really become friendly. Our conversations are comical at times (or should I say our attempts for conversation are comical). Sometimes even the simplest questions can turn into a huge ordeal due to our language differences.
The Opportunity to Miss Home- The old saying is sooo true: "distance makes the heart grow fonder"
