One week to go, I repeat one week to go

Trying to keep the excitement contained, but I can’t believe it! There’s only one week to go! It’s been a crazy month wrapping things up in America. I also learned that when going to any country for an extended period of time, one needs a visa… DUH! I completely neglected to take care of that until I realized I needed that important piece of paper. So, I made my way to the Israeli Consulate, for the first time today, and experienced a taste of Israel. Security was tighter than my Forever 21 skinny jeans. Once I spoke to the extremely attractive guys working the metal detectors, it made up for the strict security. I got myself a visa and many “good luck” wishes from those working at the consulate.

During this month of preparation, I’ve worked on mentally prepping myself. I decided to deactivate Facebook in order for me to break free from constantly having to scroll through the newsfeed. I want to be present in the moment. So far, it’s been a month and it’s been so liberating to be Facebook free. Pathetic, I know. I’ve taken every opportunity to say my “see you later” spiel to those closest to me. Distance is a difficult thing especially in relationships and friendships; however, distance can really strengthen a relationship. Distance also sometimes lets you know who is worth keeping and who is worth letting go. Unfortunately, there are certain people in our lives who are toxic for us. We may think they are our “friend” and that they mean well, but in reality we just need to let go. People come and go in our lives, but with every person we meet we always encounter some kind of lesson. I can definitely say that I’ve learned so many lessons from so many people. I can’t exactly say I’ve learned my lessons, but I’m convinced lessons in life are repeated until they are learned. I can’t wait to see how strong my friendships will grow and how much my love for my family will explode.

I am beyond stoked about this adventure I’m about to embark on and I’m looking forward to meeting a new “chevre” (group of friends) and falling in love with my beautiful Israel all over again.

This is, in its own unique way, a bit of a fresh start for me. And I’m so happy I have this opportunity in front of me.

Thanks for stopping by! Stay tuned for my exciting news 🙂
