a MAJOR change

I have always looked for a change, and needed a change... I remember saying the one and only sentence over and over again.. I don't need any change, it won't be enough.. I need a MAJOR change.

Looking at myself now, I can see it all happening and more! So im blogging using my new white adorable MAC, from my place -which is in the other part of the world- and with a new perspective on life and living coming not only from a wife and a student, but from a Jordanian who's living abroad too!

I remember getting here was difficult not only because of all the jet-lag and all the stupid stopovers we had to do but because I was still in a shock trying to digest all the changes that happened to my life in a very short period of time.

Saying goodbye was not easy- it's the worst thing I can think of. There's nothing harder.. or more depressing! The worst part and the hardest one was before the goodbyes! it's when you keep thinking of the all the times you'll miss all the ones back home even before it happens. After the goodbye, it becomes easier.. not because you'll stop missing all those who have this special place in your heart, but because it's happening.. you're living it.. there's nothing you can do about it.. but to wait for and dream of the time and minute that you'll all meet again.

Life is all about learning, and being a student again gives me this great fulfilling feeling of being useful,.. making a wise use of my time and life, and working on being someone not just anyone...

It is a whole new world! It is a MAJOR change.

    I missed your writings Dima, yeah I know how you feel now, 3 years ago I went through the same thing, leaving everybody behind, the goodbyes, the mixed emotions, and the hope for meeting them again soon.
    Major changes can be hard, I mean it’s different, we need time to adjust ourselves woth the new environment, it takes a while till we get used to it.
    Wish you the best luck in the world, alf mabrook again my dear :)
