Are you ready for a new adventure?
Would you jump at the chance to work and live overseas?
Recently, my husband was asked if he would be interested in a position overseas. I would LOVE to go overseas and have my children experience life outside the US. So, I was wholeheartedly willing to pack up and move overseas if he was offered the position. He’s applied for the position and now we wait for a decision. Would you be willing to pack up your family and move to a new location or a new country?
This is a little different than what I usually write, but I’m ready to burst with anticipation. I fear that if I don’t get it out…. well, I just need to get it out. I’m excited about the possibility of going overseas. I’m all for adventure and new experiences. So this would be a great opportunity for my family and I to see other countries. I can already envision weekend trips to various cities and then longer trips as vacation time allows. It’s really hard to not count my chickens before they hatch on this. In my mind, if I embrace the idea, it will come true. Sounds like a good plan, doesn’t it?
I know I’m not alone in being excited at the thought of a new adventure. Just imagine all the experiences it could offer. For me, the pros greatly outnumber the cons, especially in this situation. I think having spent summers in the Netherlands as a child, make me more open to living overseas. But then again, moving often with my husband’s previous job had me in a new location every few years. Every few years, that travel bug has us both ready to pick up and do something different. It’s that time again and the travel bug is back.
If you were presented with the chance to experience new things and places, would you embrace the new adventure or would you let it pass you by? Let me know in the comments.
