My Love Affair With Life In Dorset

Living in Dorset for three years has given me an exceptional gift. It’s the gift of life. I am truly blessed that I was given the opportunity to teach at a school there.

I have faced quite a few challenges. One of them is being away from my family and friends. It was so tough. I overcame the challenge through having an affair with my life in Dorset. Being alone made me realize how wonderful life is; the place where I am living is far-fetched from where I was born and lived for the longest time.

This experience has taught me to become at peace with myself and to be able to savor life. Yes, living each day as it passes by. I even became more appreciative of the people whom I always interacted with, and the gift of life that was bestowed upon me.

Living The Life In Cornwall

My fascination about life started way back when I was working overseas in Cornwall, UK. I can say that I fell in love with life so to speak. Who would have thought a teaching job can lead to self-awareness? I never did!

Who would not fall in love with Cornwall? The place is filled with sandy beaches, and harbour villages that left me in awe seeing all of them. The lifestyle here was total opposite of what I was used to. Here, I was able to take time; having “me” time was my favorite part. I never thought that a walk on the beach could be breathtaking and mesmerizing at the same time.

The experience has taught me to take time, savor the moment, and to see how my life slowly unfolded right in front of me. I even learned not to worry about the future, and what would happen. It led me to realize I need to accept things as they are. The future will take care of itself.

Plant good seeds. You reap what you sow. If you plant love, compassion, and kindness, you will reap much more in the future. This is what I am reaping years after my life in Cornwall.
