My GREATEST accomplishment while living overseas

image
It’s still blows my mind anytime I say, “I’ve been living overseas for two years!” I can’t believe I’m actually living a small thought that danced around in my head back in February 2012. It’s now June 2014 and here I am. As you think, so shall you be.

I have accomplished so much upon my arrival here in Abu Dhabi. However, when ever I’m asked about my greatest accomplishment the first thing that comes to mind is completing the two year commitment. With just two week remaining, I stand tall with my head held high…..embracing my newfound confidence. I can do whatever I put my mind to and this I now know to be my TRUTH and my CLARITY.

Folks, I’m going to be honest with you. Living overseas ain’t all peaches and creme, the HIGHS can be really HIGH and the LOWS can be really LOW. Once the honey moon period passes and it hits you that this foreign space is now your home…..boy oh boy……the stages of culture shock are REAL my followers!

I’m so thankful for my job. The time spent with my students was one of the few moments I felt at home. As an educator, I am fortunate enough to have a platform (classroom) to do what I love which is inspiring youth to achieve their BIG dreams. Furthermore, providing them with the resources needed to experience SUCCESS so that they now know what it LOOKS like, FEELS like, and SOUNDS like. Once a child experiences success…I mean truly lives it in my classroom……..the world of infinite possibilities is in their hands….thereby motivating them to shoot for the stars!

My biggest challenge always began the moment I’d leave my job because I was stepping back into a strict Muslim culture. Initially, I was curious and immersed myself into the Arabic ways but after a year….I just got tired. Lol. Year two was much more challenging than year one. By year two things became clearer (as far as the cultural/religious ways) and they challenged my western ways beyond measure. I thought about going home at least once a day. Not because of any type of negative experience, I just missed my home…I missed my normalcy. I missed the luxury of blending in. My company gives us teachers many opportunities to resign but I had to finish what I started. I was AWARE of the idea that every obstacle posed an opportunity for emotional, physical and spiritual growth. Furthermore, this experience was exactly what I asked for. So often times, I simply invited my EGO to take it’s weak ass out of my head……..I (SPIRIT) was prepared to surrender to the experience and see this journey all the way to the end.

I still don’t know how I’ve managed to get through these past to years which is why I must attribute my greatest accomplishment to my SOURCE. I have discovered a new level of strength, patience, flexibility, tolerance, humility, gratitude, love and peace. I am a new man! More importantly, I have left my footprint within the sand dunes of the Middle East. Although I may never see the results of my hard work while serving here in Abu Dhabi, it is the JOURNEY that has been filled with life changing experiences and opportunities to SERVE…..and for that I am thankful. This is myTRUTHmyCLARITY….. Encouraging all of you to step outside of your comfort zone into the direction of the unknown…… Live on purpose!

What is your LEGACY?

image
What will be your legacy? And I challenge you to think beyond the material possessions you will leave behind. I’m more interested in knowing what message your life will bring to light once you transition out of your physical body. What will your eulogy speak of? How will people reflect upon your life?

You see, I believe we all are an extension of our SOURCE and our spirits have been placed upon this earth in physical form to carry out our divine purpose. I know this to be true and recognize that my days on this earth will soon come to an end once my purpose has been fulfilled.

I am a spiritual being having a human experience and am thankful to have seen 31 years and hopefully 30 ……..plus more! As I (my awareness) observe my physical body moving through life, I am beginning to feel less attached to the body that houses my spirit (me). Lol. I know…I know…I’m getting deep. But for real….I am NOT the physical body many have come to know and observe. I am the energy that lives within this human vessel. As I embrace this knowing, I feel more motivated to take care of it (this body). I’m not hoping to fit into a certain pair of pants, or attract attention. I just want to maximize my time on this earth so that I may fully and effectively carry out my purpose.

Which leads me back to my original question: What is your legacy? The world is filled with so many distractions. And as a result, some folks stray away from their destined paths and begin living a life investing in stuff and things that satisfy their EGOs. Heck….it’s happened to me! But I’ve since learned that a great way to reflect on where you are and where you’re supposed to be……is to revisit your desired legacy.

My Legacy:

I am a man who walks confidently into the direction of my dreams. I surrender and allow life to guide me. My constant evolution affords me the capacity to serve with an abundance of love. I walk my talk and live on purpose!

My legacy serves as the energy that powers the internal GPS system of my heart. My internal GPS system has been programmed by my source which is why I am able to walk confidently into the direction of the unknown. It guides me along this unconventional journey I’ve been experiencing since childhood. My source has always had my best interest at heart while also serving the needs of others. This is my TRUTH my CLARITY!
