My plans for the future, are stirring in me, like they never had. I sometimes lay in bed at night not sleeping, just trying to put all these plans together and again, maybe it is jetlag, but sleep in not coming as easy right now. Funny that at age 60, I have a plan. Doesn’t mean it is going to happen, but what these past couple of years have brought is clarity. My old 11th grade American Studies teacher, once said, or maybe more than that, “There ain’t no easy answers to nothing!!!” Horrible English grammar, but you get the point and so did I then and now. Having the certification to teach English, or tutor is wonderful and getting that process rolling in 2023 is the goal. Business, as well is looking good. I am optimistic for the future, and I am also realistic, but having simplified my life so much, in terms of material goods, and focusing on me and my life which includes, of course, Rosa and my business, I am very happy.
What I have learned more than anything is that the most important things are the simple things. I know I have said that before in previous blogs, but as we are coming towards the end of this year and unlike other years past, I have had the time to reflect on what has happened so far. It has been a slower existence and I am happy for that. I don’t want the year to end yet, as it will come soon enough. I still have clients traveling and others about to travel. I get to see Rosa again in a little over a month and our story continues, from here and there. We will see what happens over the next 2 ½ months in this crazy world in which we live, and continue to focus on what is important, discarding those things that I realize are less important and totally unimportant and sometime next year, before I once again head across the pond, for what I expect to be a longer term, I will clear out the things that have been stored now, and by almost 2 years and there is so much that is not important.
Lastly, I hope you have had a chance to listen to part one of the interview with Rosa di Roma, which is on my website or you can find it on my YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/wanderingpuffin, which will be in 3 parts and possibly a 4th and if you are interested in the tour I am putting together for September 2023 in Croatia, send me a message, so we can get a head count by the end of the month. Four dates were given. As always, thank you for your support of my crazy little world and of my small business. It is truly appreciated, and as always, I am interested in your thoughts, comments, questions and adding to the discourse is always appreciated be in on the site itself or on Facebook, Twitter or wherever you read this.
