One Day At A Time

Many people asked me this month when I would leave Finland, when I would finish my degree, and what my plans for the future are?..... For the most of this, I don't have the answers, but one thing I am sure of is I will achieve a nursing degree :)

I never would have guessed this time last year, when I moved to Finland on exchange, that I would stay this long. Something kept me here! I decided to take a chance!

I don't regret any decision I have made, they have molded me, and made me who I am today.

Of course there are days I wonder what I'm doing, or why I stayed, but I have faith in myself that I've made the right decision, with regards my life, so far. I'm not one for believing too much in God, but I do believe my fate hasn't steered me wrong so far!

The important thing to remember is; even when you give up on your faith ("having confidence/trust, or belief in something better than what you're experiencing), trust that you're fate ("a predetermined path, a destiny, something that unavoidably defalls you") is taking you somewhere good.

Often, being so far away can be a struggle, but I like to think that whoever is up there must think I'm an awful strong person, or else why would they test me with these everyday tasks ;)

So for now, I power on, tick-tocking for today. I don't always have the answers as to why I'm still in Finland, or where I'll be in a year, but who does. I'm here for today, I don't need to think about tomorrow just yet!
