Here’s one of my mottos: “Never put all of your eggs into one basket.”
But sometimes rules are meant to be broken… and I broke it over and over in high hopes of this email from Gone2Korea:
“I have some good news; the Incheon MOE released the final results and you’ve been accepted. Congratulations, you now have a teaching job lined up with the Incheon Metropolitan Office of Education!” – July 23, 2012 12:06pm
It was truly a gamble! With only three weeks left at my current job position, I stopped applying for more jobs, declined a hagwan position with ChungDahm Academy, and was in the process of declining my number one AmeriCorps health promotions volunteer position. In fear of losing out on yet another dream, I didn’t truly give my life’s path over to destiny until last night during a PC-text conversation with a friend. She was asking about the various decisions that I have to make, but I found myself declaring: “Girl, I’m going to Korea. If the tide turns, then I will turn with it. But I’m fightin’ for SK.”
I was going to fight for the international adventure. Yet, if it wasn’t my destiny, I was going to be okay. Before I laid my head on my pillow last night, I placed my emotions into God’s hands for the evening. I fell asleep thinking, “Everything is going to be alright.” And by God, I’m excited today!
