Can I get an Amen!
It’s been 6 months since I got on a flight and landed in Accra, Ghana. These 6 months have taught me that life will always give you lemons, so guess what? Make lemonade. I have gained friendships and declined certain friendships based upon the data presented. I have people that are potential baes and some not even on my level. I am still learning in the profession I am but I have grown tremendously since I started. I enjoy my independence such as living on my own and my making my own rules. These are things I am grateful for because I am really am learning at the being the best person I want to be. Living in Canada, I am not going to lie to you, I was absolutely spoiled by my parents regarding assistance in the home, work and finances. Although, I am still spoiled on the low by family members in Ghana and my parents send a care package every now and then. Nonetheless, I am adulting in many situations I am proud of.
Sure, I had some serious downs especially when it comes to my emotional and spiritual well-being that affected me. However, the lemons God has given have been determination and a healthy support system here in Ghana and abroad. For the first time in my life, I feel the support I need in my life in all areas in my life and it is a good feeling.
Toast to 6 months of living in Ghana and dealing with traffic, culture shock, customer service, workplace culture, relationships and overall lifestyle I currently live. I have adapted. However, I am disappointed at lack my travel I have done in the last 6 months and I will honor myself and figure out my next travel destination. In the meantime, here are a few memories of time in Ghana thus far. I think I live a cool lifestyle here in Accra. Check it out!
