I’ve wrote a blog post about me turning my life upside down when I decided to make a huge Change in my life. Well that change was moving back to Haiti temporarily (about 4 months). For a lot of people, they thought I was making the dumbest decision to pick up and leave like this. Many people thought the moment I go back it will be forever. I get it but they didn’t understand what I was longing for.
I took the semester off and put my New York life on hold while I come back and rest! I was so happy to be back home after being away for a while. There have been some major bumps on the road at the beginning of the year. For instance like, the passing of my grandmother and this family friend, my phones got stolen which was a bummer . Y’all know iPhones are like mini laptops, it was really frustrating when I lost all my important stuff as well as all of my pictures that I took since I’ve been home for the past 2 months. It got me really angry, lol I’m not materialistic type of person but I think it’s BS when someone steals your shit.
At one point, I really wanted to leave everything behind but I reminded myself that God is greater and bigger than my problems. Despite everything, I’m BEYOND HAPPY to be with my family, best friends etc. Haiti was the best move that I’ve made, I’ve got some closures with things that I needed too which was good. I’ve been visiting a lot of places that I’ll blog about later on.
As the new year started, I put on my mind it was going to be a year of growth, adventures, among other things and above all happiness. So I’m happy to be home the little bumps can’t be compared to the good things that have happened. As much as I was sad for grandma who was 87 years old, She lived an amazing life.
While in Haiti, I’ve worked with some amazing group people doing missionary work which was beyond great! The children were everything, I love seeing them smile and I love to see when others are dedicated to making it great too. I have a substitute teaching Job at my parents school. I’m grateful for it but I’m not fit to be a teacher lol. Children are crazy 😑. I’ve been working on something for the PAST 6 years, now I can see a sign of relief because next month I will officially launch it. I’m super excited about that and I CANT wait to share with y’all, what I’ve been cooking.
I’m almost at the end of my Haiti journey so I’m looking into going somewhere before I go back to school and maybe interning this summer. I’m planning a trip to ITALY & GREECE (HAPPY DANCE)! So I’m hopping everything goes as plan so I can go on my next adventure. I’ve been dreaming about this trip for years now! I want to spend my birthday somewhere NEW. I don’t need to have anyone really with me because I like going places alone. It doesn’t bother me much. I’ve been praying to God to help me make it happen.
For years, I would always make plans without following through but this year I change how I go about things. I’m super excited y’all ! Keep me in your prayers so everything goes as planned.
Have I stayed in New York I wouldn’t achieved all of those things. Honestly I miss my roommates because they are literally THE BEST!!! I miss my friends and family. I also miss my NEW YORK life but I know coming home was the right move. I’ve learned so many great things while being here. Things I needed too. Closed so many chapters that I’ve left open for so long.
You know that in life the right decision is NEVER the easiest because you are so scared of the unknown and what the future holds. However, in my opinion those are the BEST part of life! The unknown faces, the scary feelings and happiness. There’s always this excitement. I’m learning to accept while learning the greatest lessons . I’ve surrounded myself with THE BEST!! I made it my business to have the greatest around me whether in New York or Haiti. Taking this time off was the best idea cause I’m feeling renewed and ready to be back in school and work.
Love bugs my advice to you all is to LIVE a life of excitement, bold choices, to be okay with where life takes you. While doing this make sure you pray, meditate, do yoga or anything you do to keep you calm. It can be overwhelming especially when everyone have something to say (which I think is unnecessary sometimes 😉😉).
•The right decision is the hardest one sometimes•
I’m SUPER happy to share my journey with you guys until I go back to New York.
Go on adventures, LIVE life fully ❤️
XOXO,Lady Sergine 🌹💋
