This morning I saw a Facebook status of my friend. As far as I know, she’s been living a life that she wants to. I have to admit that I’m jealous with her life – in which she can live wherever she wants, works on her own hours and explore this world, literally.
I’ve been wanting to live abroad and do traveling as a nature. Well, I tasted a life abroad for a while, fell in love and had to stay back to my home country. The main reason was love – for my family. I used to think that my reason was weak. But one good friend of mine always reminds me that I would have live a different life if I chose to stay abroad. I wouldn’t be able to witness the growth of my niece and nephew or being with my Mom and Dad through their old days. Or I wouldn’t met my husband.
So, I have to tell myself that I shall not be jealous with my friend’s life. She has her own life and I have mine. Of course, that urge to stay abroad and travel are still yearning inside of me. But I choose to be grateful with my life here – so far.
Future, welcome me!
Have a good day!
