The Show Must Go On

As I sit here today, trying to re-settle myself back into day-to-day life, I can't help to feel that things are a little mundane around here. I know this isn't true and I know that my life for sure isn't, but I literally just stepped out of the scene above into end of school year Northern Michigan, while the temperatures and tourism is beginning to rise, it is nothing like where I have just returned from. It's weird to not hear car and motorbike horns constantly being blown (I'm talking hundreds or thousands at the same time every second!), because in India the horn is a hello, a F-off, a turn signal, a brake signal, a I'm going signal, a Hey! move cow! signal, its pretty much the universal language of everything there. Also, it's hard not to just walk in front of traffic and hold my arm out to cross and expect cars to stop here (okay I don't do that, but I thought about it), because this is the only way to cross the streets shown above when you are on foot like we were for a large portion of our excursions.


Anyway, as mundane as it may seem, it's not. I hit the ground running right back to my constantly evolving movie I call my life. I wouldn't have it any other way though. Through the second chance on life I've been given, big things are starting to happen, or the opportunities are being presented to me I should say. This time though I'm aware enough, able to embrace change, and always able to adapt to whatever the situation may arise. In every aspect of my life, from children and family and personal aspects to education opportunities, you name it, big things are happening. I have my year coming up in just a couple days, my first real speaking gig in front of people, my driver's license hearing, graduation, my son starts drivers training and starting high school, and so much more. I'm truly blessed to be present at this exact time in my life. I feel like I'm actually doing the stuff I was supposed to be doing all along.


I guess what I'm really trying to get at is that yes, it was nice to disconnect from the world and just go BE, in another country, but the show really must go on again at some point. As a matter of fact, it goes on even when your half-way across the world. I'm grateful today for every moment that I get to share with all you people that live here in this world with me. Without you all, I wouldn't be here doing what I'm doing today, living a movie! And to everyone, don't let yourself or anyone else tell you that you can't do something, because I'm living proof that you can. Just believe in yourself and the rest will follow.
