Time Flies When You’re Having Fun! – Day 175

They say time flies when you’re having fun!

Well, it also flies by when you’re undertaking a perilous journey with no good contingency plans in place.  And when you’re imposing new ways of living outside the realm of you’re normal life.

It flies by when your living life to the fullest and making the most of each and every day.

When I first got here, to Singapore, I never knew where I would be in 175 days.  Would I still be here?  Would I have a job?


My goal then was just to make it past my deadline of 90 days.  Can I make it to day 91?

I honestly didn’t know I would make it that far until I woke up on day 91 and felt the Singapore sun beating through the window.  Still no job and no idea how much longer I would last here, but I made it past my initial goal.  One that many, including myself at times, thought I would never see.

Finally I got a job and everything seemed to fall in place.  I finally felt a bit of security for the first time in four months.  That was short lived though as I am now feeling the time tick closer to the end of my job contract on January 31st.

Last year at this time my most adventurous lifetime goal was to live 6 months abroad.  I believed (the more and more I told myself) I would try it at some point in my life.  I didn’t realize I was only 6 months away from departure.

Now, I am just a little over a week (November 18th) from accomplishing that goal!  God willing, I think I will make it.  But, will I be here in 6 months from now?  I don’t know if I will even be here in three months from now.

The one thing I do know though…

Whether it’s a lifetime goal to live abroad or something more personal such as making amends with an old friend.  Whatever it is that you say in your mind that you want do someday… Take the leap!  Make the jump!  DO IT!

If I can do it so can you!

And if you take the risk I can almost guarantee you that you will be rewarded with a feeling that is far greater then any feeling you have felt before.  Some of you have already taken a leap and know this feeling.

Don’t stop!  Keep going!  Keep Jumping!

Along with the feeling of joy and accomplishment you will also gain knowledge far greater then knowledge anyone or anything can teach!

I don’t know what I’ll be doing in 175 days from now or where I’ll be. Either way, I am going to enjoy the ride!  As they say… Time flies when your having fun.  Make sure you don’t miss out and leave any regrets behind when your time is up!
