Today, 24 December 2017, I have been on the road exactly 14 months. That is a bit more than 420 days that I have spent in
The United Arab Emirates (UAE)
I had a brand new passport issued before I left Sweden and I have to get a new one soon since I’m running out of empty pages.
I’m not sure how many kilometres I have traveled on land but many for sure. Traveling as the locals do on busses and trains are the best way to travel. Flying is sometimes required because of visa regulations. Stupid rules, but existing rules so sometimes one has to go there.
A lot of people, both old and new friends have asked me a lot of questions and made many remarks about my traveling.
Have I been brave? I don’t know.
Have I been courageous? I couldn’t tell.
Have I been bold? Perhaps a bit.
Have I found myself? Didn’t have to. I brought myself along before I left Sweden.
Did I learn something about myself while being on the road for 14 months? Yes, I certainly did. I learned that
I don’t have time for bulshit
I am mentally strong
I can handle difficult situations
I am adaptable
I am genuine
I am capable
I know my boundaries
I don’t appreciate being told what I can or can’t do, should or shouldn’t do, because of my gender.
I don’t have time for bulshit.
So what does all this mean. Who am I? What sort of person have I become?
I am still me. The only difference is that some things have become more important to me and some less, and now I know why.
Money and wealth wasn’t important to me 14 months ago and that hasn’t changed. Now I know why.
Being at peace with myself. That has become more important to me, embodying the definition of happiness. Now I know why.
Today, on Christmas Eve, I want to gift you with my hopes and wishes for you all to
Be in Peace within Yourselves
Merry Christmas, With Love
