For the last three years, I have been lucky enough to live in Okinawa, Japan, but that chapter of my life is coming to an end. As I was preparing to move, I started reminiscing on all the wonderful memories I have made, and thought about the lessons I have learned.
I have met some of the most wonderful people in the world.
I have seen some of the most beautiful sights in the world.
I have adopted two wonderful Oki Mixes.
I have learned about a culture other than my own, and I have to say I loved it!
I have learned to embrace myself for who I am.
So, now it is time to say goodbye to this place I have called my home. I am just thankful that I took advantage of this opportunity and let myself enjoy the time I had here. Living in Okinawa was not something I ever expected to be able to say I’ve done, but that doesn’t matter. What really matters is just how much Okinawa has changed me.
