She need a principal, not a substitute…

This week was a crazy one. But when life hands me lemons, I guess I’ll make lemonade vodka pie. With grey goose vodka at that. Tart, but sweet I must say. 

I received an email stating at the final stage my application was rejected to go to final contract. At 5:30 am I was a bit shaken up, but actually immediately thought that something was very wrong and there’s a definite reason for my application not going through. Maybe it was God’s wake up call to alert me that He is in control and has something better up His sleeve for me than I could even imagine…what it is I will have to wait and see! 🙂 My recruiter, Phil, says that EPIK lost a great candidate and I have a great attitude in figuring out my next plan to apply; he mentioned private schools in SK. Yes, I am still going! (Maybe to China, Georgia, or Thailand if SK doesn’t pan out right now…)

A positive attitude enables you to make the best of every situation, and that gives you power over your circumstances instead of allowing your circumstances to have power over you. -Joyce Meyer”

This weekend I had to say good-bye to Zahraa and her mother…it was really sad because I had spent almost every Saturday with them since April…
Then I had to say good-bye to the lady that does my nails…she kept saying next time you come back you ask for me so we can talk- I have not seen you in forever! I had to tell her I was moving, and she was like where so I told her. She is from Vietnam and kept saying you will come back, yes you will, America is the best. I just smiled. Then she said that she was going to miss me and as I was waiting for my nails to dry I started to tear up.

“travel often. getting lost will help you find yourself.”

My friend Shelby gave me this quote at work the other day, and I really liked it…each experience away from home gives a person a different perspective on life and provokes questions and inquires about circumstances unthought of before…a new outlook on life…a growing change inside and out…a new self-discovery or perhaps a change in heart or meaning for living…being in a new place (at least for me) opens my eyes to a new corner of the world, new light, and a new vision for what my life is going to be…

so when i close my eyes in a seafood market to inhale the salty air i’m not trying to get my bearings, i’m awakening senses to explore and see;or if i stop dead in my tracks on a switchback mountain trail, i won’t fall, but stand firm to feel the ground beneath;on a balcony at sunset i’m not looking for the horizon to know which direction i face, i’m mesmerized by the colors fading on the ocean water; i’m spinning on city street to unbalance my certainty, and i’m sinking into a sandy beach to unearth treasures buried deep…to find the something i’m searching for…
