18 Months Later

18 months ago from today I landed in Singapore.  The unknown was all I had in front of me.  Would it be a mistake or a great decision?  Would I be better off in 18 months or would this journey be something that would send my life spiraling out of control once and for all? Would this journey define me or would I define it?

As most of you know, the last 18 months featured many ups and downs.  Many smiles and tears.  But here I am, still in Singapore.

I learned a lot.  Determined as never before, I battled to keep myself here. Accepting only a successful result!

It’s been 6 months since my last post.  A post, which suggested victory was near!  6 months later, an overall victory has been accomplished.  However, a lot of new challenges lie ahead. Challenges that I look forward to tackling!  To continue to learn and grow!

Over the last 6 months I was able to add a few tacks in the map by visiting the Philippines, Vietnam and Penang, Malaysia.  Oh, and a two week trip back to New York!  A trip that was not at all disastrous like the first one, almost a year ago.

What is to come?  What will the next 18 months have in store for me?  I would be a fool to answer that question.  After all, I’ve always lived every day like it could be my last.  Anything can happen!  Maybe I’ll still be here?  Maybe I’ll be living in another country?  Maybe I’ll finally visit Cambodia?

While the Unknown may not hold any quick answers, it does hold unlimited possibilities!  So as I always say.  Live the adventure!  Grab life by the tusks!

Unfortunately the only picture I have of this trip is the plane ticket!  Either my memory card got erased accidentally or the Philippines was not a place to take pictures that would later be posted on a blog?
