Tweet As 2011 wraps up, I must admit that I am sad to see it end. This year I turned 30, visited 4 different countries and 8 different cities, I relocated to another country and fell in love, a few times, before I found my perfect prince.
In fact looking back on it this year, undoubtedly, it was the best year I ever had. Seeing that in print is funny, because at the beginning of the year, I must admit, I didn't know what was going on with my life. This time last year, I was unemployed, frantically searching for a job and doing damage control, trying to maintain some resemblance of the life that I had built in DC.
Now a year later, I have successfully relocated to Ghana, started a business, which I hope will be the talk of the town soon, and most importantly, I am happier than I have ever been before. It is just amazing how life's disappointments really are God's appointments as some say.
I remember my last few weeks of work, my boss called me into his office and asked how my job search was going and what my plan was. Now, let me be clear, he probably really didn't care, he just needed someone to make conversation with and this was one of the few times I had showed up for work since I found out I was going to be unemployed in the New Year. I played the game told him I hadn't really found anything and the plan was that if I hadn't found a job by March I was going to sell everything and move to Africa. Little did I know, how serious I really was.
I must admit, there are still times I miss getting crazy with Mr. Connor or playing dizzy bat with my SE crew. After all, where else can you get the low down on the escapades that took place on an Atlantic City trip or hear someone's dissertation on why turkey is the best source of protein. But overall, I am making new memories and building a new life, that seems to be slightly better than the last one. I just am thankful that my life, like me, gets better with time.
Until Next Time Smooches.
