This is odd and funny, doing new and out of my element is not something new and out of my element. Well, let me explain: I believe that in life, you have huge challenges to overcome and decisions to make and risks to take or mitigate. And I hate hesitation, dwelling, doubts, all these things that hinder you and prevent you to live what you have to live.
Of course I hesitate and dwell and doubt too, once in a while. But I try to do as much as possible before I stop. And I die.
So when the real deal challenges, decisions and risks happen, as I’m trained not to fear new and out of my element, I do not think too long. And do.
Maybe the last time I did something new and out of my element was last week when I finally boarded this plane to Singapore. But not really, because a few years ago I boarded a train to Germany. And Taiwan before… Oh, but now I came with my toddler. Yes, I boarded the plane alone with a now 3 year-old child, not knowing what would come next.
Maybe the last time was yesterday when I accepted to start working 20 days prior to what was told. I still have neither kindergarten nor flat, but hey, I am convinced that with a little luck, good time management and awesome Internets, I’ll make it fall into place.
Maybe the last time was this morning when Babylove and I brought Love with the taxi to the airport for his business trip. The taxi driver asked me if he should wait and bring us back to the hotel. And I said: “Hm… no, we’ll walk, thanks.”
That was stupid by the way, it was long and tiring because after half a hour I had to carry BL (the stroller is in the container somewhere near Africa – or maybe some Somalian pirates have already taken a hold on it… No please no!).
Also, instead of going west, I went east because I have no clue about directions. But that was awesome because the temperature was not too high, we discovered another part of the city, and we had breakfast in a very nice park with a family we just met.
But that’ll be a lie, cause I do that often. Getting lost and breakfast with strangers. This is odd and funny.
