After reading my sad depressing blog from yesterday, I feel the need to make up for it. Yes, I was sad yesterday; all day in fact. Not only was it devastating to think that my past actions could potentially have the power to end my trip, but the emotions of the actual DUI came back up to the surface. It was a dark time in my life and up until recently have finally cleared it away. Circumstances like this feel the same as the monthly surcharge I paid for three long years – to remember how serious the situation was and how easy it is to completely disrupt a life.
Today is a new day with a new outlook. My initial response was grim, but after I got through all the emotional stuff, realized that what I need to do is get all the paper work in correctly, making it clear that I am a great addition to their country. The past is out of my hands. There is nothing anyone can do anything to change it.
They say you live and learn. OH I’ve learned alright. Hopefully part of the learning process doesn’t include losing the adventure of a lifetime….Wish me luck 🙂
