I’m quite aware of how far overdue this post is, I was hesitant about writing it, and to be honest I more or less tried to delay working on it. Addressing how this was going to be my closing article to my one month stay at the United Arab Emirates, my emotions were surely heightened (but that’s just me being a drama queen).
Although those 31 days seemed to flash before my very own eyes, It was clear to myself, as well as others that I was in the right place. If traveling’s supposed to teach you more about yourself, then Dubai truly taught me that and far more. I’m unsure of what to write about in this post, what to address, and who to address it to, but it all comes down to this – I’m just thankful.
I’m thankful for Dubai’s bustling streets, to its diverse faces, and places. I’m thankful for the emotions it made me feel, because when it was good it was like no other high, and when it was bad, it was really bad. I’m thankful for the opportunities which were presented to me, the energy and motivational characters I’ve come across. I’m thankful to the people that opened there doors for me, I’m thankful for those chill sessions of banter, loud laughter, and the promises which will truly be kept hereafter. I now know that I have a home, far away from home.
I’m thankful for the road trips to Abu Dhabi and Sharjah, for they taught me a lot about who I was with, and how to better mesh with them. I’m thankful that I’ve finally come to terms with the phrase “Everything In Its time” because in that particular moment, I knew what I had, and I knew that it was going to come to me within the right time, or moment in my life – I’m just happy that I learned, and made the most of it.
I was told that in Dubai you either sink or flow; and flow I did. So here’s to that, here’s to everything, and everyone, and most importantly, here’s to next time…
