Hi Guys! So, for those of you that have already subscribed to my blog, THANK YOU! For all the new readers, I hope you enjoy reading this as much as I do writing it… Thank you, thank you, thank you!! Please subscribe! So, quick update; loving it in Dubai. If you ever have the chance to come and visit, you HAVE TO! I recently moved to Dubai, read all about it here. Dubai has a certain magic to it. Everyone that stays here will tell you to come during the winter time. Which starts around about the end of September. Average temperature highs will be 26˚C (I am yet to experience it). Summer months are May till September and is an average of 40 ˚C and seriously humid. But now start of September you can see people returning from holiday, even the birds are starting to return. I think it is safe to say that Dubai is getting its mojo back.
So today, for the first time in 3 months I visited my blog again. WOW! I was so busy going for interviews, planning what new direction my life would take that I completely forgot to track the activity on my blog. This just means that I am doing something right. I just reached 1000 page views. I know to some it is not a lot, but this is a MAJOR milestone for me. It is a bit surreal, I mean that is hundreds of people all over the world reading MY stuff. Kinda cool! So sorry for the looooong delay in posts. I think I was looking for some inspiration, and as some of my old students would tell you, you can’t rush inspiration. When it comes, it comes and you need to be ready for it when it does. Check out my new website with exciting new ventures. Trying to force something is so tedious and never fun. When I feel like I am forced to write it will take me hours on hours to write 300 words, but when the inspiration strikes it can take a full 15 minutes to write 200 words. You get the point. I have stopped thinking that I purely need to do something because I have to. I want to be a person with passion, and I can’t be that if I am not true to myself and what I want to do with my life. Surround yourself with good people, but don’t get me wrong, this doesn’t mean you can stop doing anything and everything you don’t like. I don’t like doing the laundry but that doesn’t mean I can stop doing it. I do like walking around in clean clothes so certain things must be sacrificed for the greater good. So my only option is to do the laundry now, and start working really hard and really smart at what I love and then pay someone to do the laundry for me. Does that make me lazy? Hell no, that just means my priorities differ from the next person. We all need to follow our passions for the next person to succeed. The guy on the corner opening his first laundry business would agree that one man’s chore is another man’s choice. “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.” - Steve Jobs So guys and gals, keeping it short and sweet today. Already working on a new post. “Strike while the iron is hot”. So please subscribe and be on the look-out for: “Why I didn’t get my dream job” Love,
