Thank you, Cyprus!
Hello everyone! How are you doing?
All good things come to an end. It is time to say goodbye after almost 9 months together! Do not worry, before I will share with you why you should always get out from your comfort zone!
I am from Martinique, a Caribbean French Island! I came here in Cyprus for a volunteering project without knowing where it was exactly. A few days ago, I had an amazing conversation with a Turkish person who told me: “Change your environment and you will start to see things differently”.
On October 31st, I left my Island and my family to live that experience. I arrived in France on November 1st where I was able to spend good time with the rest of my family. Then I left again for Cyprus and arrived on November 2nd.
I am very thankful for that opportunity because not only I was able to meet wonderful people but I have also started an amazing transformation!
Cyprus gives me the opportunity to develop a better version of myself I call her Edlyne 3.0! She is not afraid about the future because she knows that the universe has her back. She is unlimited and very humble. She enjoys each moment and is taking risks. I love her!
I had to break a circle to open a new one! Was it easy? Not at all. Was it worth it? Yes!
Your life is the reflection of your choices! You need to try something to gain experiences. It is normal to have doubts at some points, but I believe that it is worst to stay in your comfort zone! I believe that each time that you are overcoming a challenge you are getting stronger! Here I was able to push my limits.
In my case, I was not in a comfort zone but in an uncertain zone! I always have a good mindset which avoids me to feel hopeless even in bad times. Cyprus opened my eyes in several areas of my life. I was able to see who care about me during these months. Sometimes, you may be surrounded by people that are only taking advantages of yourself and you cannot see it!
Another point is that when you have nothing to lose, you will always have gains!
Every new beginning comes from some other beginning’s end.Seneca
To sum up, I have no regrets about my choice to come here and I would like to thank everyone that I have met. Thanks to everyone that makes my experience better. Thanks to OTI for this opportunity
Thank you, Cyprus!
