My Today

’Am going to follow their footsteps and become even a greater woman in the world and I believe that because it’s my dream.’

Today I was going to the airport and was late , but for once in a very long time I had a driver dropping me who cared about me . Usually I just drive and park by the airport or I get a taxi but today he even got to push two of my big suitcases to departure .

He was so calm , about the same height as me but slightly taller and very nice black hair. I don’t even remember when I last looked into someone’s eyes directly and didn’t wanna stop. To say the least, the best ride I’ve had with a person in “decades”. Closing this chapter, I never got to say goodbye to him when we reached the airport as was rushing in order not to miss my flight.

On board, I was sandwiched between two Chinese women . One of them extremely talented ohh God! She was using this photoshop app like I’ve never seen before. She made it all seem easy and reminded me of how I’ve struggled to learn using it 🙂 . I was staring at her secretly but non stop. Could today’s flight get any better? Away from her my eyes were loitering around uncontrollably to all other screens of passengers in-front of me. Then I realised how I haven’t focused for the last 7months . I have had things to deal with but with a very busy schedule and haven’t felt love that I deserve. I have Buried myself in my football and projects that I forgot myself.

I have missed home! Missed my parents and feels like I left home a decade ago . This holiday I have two events but am determined to rest my body and get mentally and emotionally fine. People talk about mental health but I thought I had got to that point where I was straining because I was missing the people I love. Now let me go home spend time with my pole dad and busy mother. Am going to follow their footsteps and become a greater woman in the world and I believe that because it’s my dream.
