The Decision to Explore the Unknown

“Take risks: If you win you will be happy, if you lose you will be wise.”


The road to my exploration started when I received an offer from a former colleague to work in Malaysia.

The offer sounded exciting and scary at the same as it was going to be my first time to venture out of the country and live in a foreign land without my parents (yeah I was a mama and papa’s girl).

The thought of working abroad without any friends and without my mom to take care of the chores for me (lazy ass haha) scared me.

Nevertheless, I took the plunge. But I won’t deny, I did have second thoughts as I can still remember my fear of feeling homesick as well (don’t we all?).

June 17, 2014 was the day I got the offer… It’s now a year since I decided to get out of my comfort zone and explore the unknown.

It’s been a year since I decided to TAKE RISK and accept an offer that will eventually change my life. If I allowed my FEAR to get the best of me then I wouldn’t be enjoying the BLESSINGS that God is offering to me now.

So I encourage you all to TAKE THE PLUNGE and JUST DO IT! Whatever it is don’t let opportunities to pass you by! When it comes knocking at your door, grab it by the horns and ride it despite the turmoils you will be facing.

Though I will never forget… that angel that God used to get me here to where I am now… Thank you Miss Ayee <3
