I just read this and I hope all is well....
By the way, I was in San Marcus, TX this morning dropping my sister and niece off at the train station....
My mother and I tried to go Gil's Broiler & Manske Bakery to get their famous "Manske Roll", but they were closed, lol
And I'm from the DFW area and have been in a small town called "Beeville" for the past 3 years....
I am so ready to go back and, God willing, we will be back home by June of this year.....maybe sooner
But, I wanted to let you know that I know all to well how you feel.
Difference is I have a family and obligations.
My personal advice to you would be, "Follow your dreams, go with your heart, and never regret anything."
You have no obligations and nothing holding you back.
You have opportunities and many doors open for you right now....take advantage.
There is nothing selfish about your dreams.
Especially when you have no ties to anyone or anything.
In my past, I have given up so many dreams and goals for the comfort of others and I do regret it.
Now, Iím following my dreams and pursuing my goals but itís so much harder with a family and I wish I had done it earlier in life.
Traveling the world is a huge dream of mine, too.
And I plan on starting that dream soonÖ..
But you have to realize that there are going to be negative people around you no matter where you go.
Just smile and donít let them bring you down.
You canít control or change other people but you can control yourself and how you do and see things.
Stay positive and keep your dreams alive no matter what gets thrown in your path.
It isnít the person who never falls or never has obstacles thrown in their way that makes itÖ.that is not realisticÖbut, itís the person who gets back up, never stays down and knows how to always through those obstacles that makes it.
Be that personÖ.
Make every step you make in life be one step closer to your dreams.
See the world.
Meet new people.
Explore new places and cultures.
You will not regret itÖ..
