Someone recently asked me if my life is as great as it sounds on Facebook, Twitter and through my blog. The short answer is yes.
But the truth is that I have bad days on occasion. I just choose not to bore my Facebook friends and Twitter followers with constant negative updates. Because everyone has bad days. Wherever they may live.
I have days where I feel defeated. Wonder why I stay. Why I don’t just give up and go back to the cushy and well-paid career I left behind. Days where I could scream (and do). Flee the kingdom and never return. Evenings where I’m extremely grateful for friends.
But then I remember that bad days happen wherever you may live.
That stressful days at the office happen anywhere.
That bad people are everywhere. That not everyone shares the same value of friendship.
That regardless of where you may live, these types of challenges present themselves. And so you just have to decide where in the world you are most willing to accept those challenges. Because most likely the joys and advantages outweigh the challenges and frustrations.
And so even on a bad day in Marrakech, I’m grateful for the decisions I’ve made.
So for now, I’ll stay put.
After all, the sun is shining and it’s +25’C and they call this winter!
