Growing moment by moment

1523937809058It’s been ages…well, almost a year. During that time, I’ve been working on my clearing through the clutter of my mind, redefining my path, discovering love in multiple forms, finding community, and learning to cherish each moment.

I’ve laughed a great deal, cried a heck of a lot, and worked hard to nurture my child-self.  I suppose that will always be a part of what it means for me to be living.

Speaking of living: I’m still living in Japan, finishing up my second year. I’m still teaching English, and I truly love my work. I love being around children, and I especially love sharing knowledge.

I’m learning Japanese (it’s a process), and I wish I had the chance to speak Italian and German more regularly–now, I’m just reading books and doing some personal writing in those two languages. I’m learning how challenging it is to keep language skills when you aren’t able to use them. So, I’m sorting through how I’d like to resolve this particular issue.

Well, this has been quite the ramble. Still, I wanted to write something, and so I have.

Until Next Time,

D

    The last time I read your blog, you were living in Italy and wrote a good piece on what it was like, as a Black person, to live there. What made you move to Japan? An old friend of mine loved her experience teaching English there for two years through JET..

      Sorry for the late response. 🙂 I’m still getting back into the flow of things. What made me move? Good question. 😀 I suppose it’s just where the universe decided to send me? I’m still figuring out the answer to that one. Still, this experience has been life-altering in the most positive ways. Thank you so much for your question, and for taking the time to read my post. 🙂
