Thought for the day…being an expat
Here I am, walking to the metro… I just finished with my trainer and now it’s time to go run… As I go through my days, sometimes it’s hard to believe not only that I have been an expat for nearly a year (add 8 months to that if you want to count the time I lived in China), but that it feels so normal. I don’t miss living in the states for the most part…I miss some of the convenience of the consumer culture (knowing where you need to go to buy something saves a lot of time!), but not much more than that. As I slowly let go of any concrete ties to the states…getting rid of my Verizon account that I held onto even in China, selling my Jeep..I feel free. Not everyone is meant to be an expat, but or me…it just fits.
