"Come tomorrow, I'll wake up new..." ~Chad Shugg
"Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow, creeps in this petty face from day to day." ~William Shakespeare
"Tomorrow is Pregnant and no one knows what she will give birth to..." ~African Proverb
As you can see from the quotes above, my current focus lies on tomorrow due to the fact that I depart tomorrow and I will officially arrive in Shanghai on Thursday. I'm full of stress (I'm still packing ;/ ) and my emotions are running incredibly high. I cannot believe that I'm going to China...
As I mentioned previously, I'm still in shock over my decision to go to China. If someone had told me a year ago that I would be going to China, I would given them a wicked side-eye followed up with enormous gales of incredulous laughter. As I mentioned previously on this blog, China, or Asia in general was never on my radar, but, life happens and I never question my gut.
The reality has not really hit me that I'm going to be boarding a plane in a few short hours (with a hella long flight) and waking up on the other side of the world ( a day later). The reality that I'm willingly leaving my comfort zone of the west to voluntarily go to the east. The reality that I'm living abroad again...
I posted the above quotes because they convey my current thoughts. I don't know what tomorrow or this adventure may hold but a few things are certain: tomorrow is a new day, living a new dream, with new experiences, and in the future, new stories and anecdotes to share with a brand new outlook.
So, I will leave you now so I can finish packing and hopefully, I can catch some zzzz's. All I ask is that you keep me in your positive thoughts (or prayers) because I would truly appreciate it.
Have a wonderful night and see you on the other side of the world!
