Trabajo y estabilidad o VIAJE ¿Que harías tú? ⠀ Ya está cada día más cerca el día del viaje. Yo veo cada día unos videos de otros viajeros, hablo con unos e imagino mi propio camino. ⠀ Pero pasó algo. Justo hoy me llegó la notificación sobre un documento que me faltaba en Panamá para entrar a programa de ONU. Y Ya está listo. O sea ya yo puedo elegir un trabajo de mi especialidad. ⠀ Les acuerdo que yo terminé una universidad rusa y tengo diploma de relaciones internacionales. Yo hablo 3 idiomas de los 6 que son oficiales de la ONU. Entonces mi entrada a este organismo es muy probable. Que prestigioso no? ⠀ Claro, mi familia de una empezó a decir "Que viaje? En que piensas? ¡Trabajo en la ONU con un salario bueno o un viaje donde dormirás en una carpa de techo! ⠀ Y obviamente me puse a pensar. Quien ahora se levantará, lo dejará todo y se irá de un viaje largo? ⠀ Pues yo. Yo decidí hacerlo porque siempre me ha gustado historia, otras culturas, otros idiomas y nueva gente. Este viaje no es de pasar por un continente, este viaje tiene raíces más allá en el fondo de mi Alma. Yo siento que esta etapa será de gran cambio en mi vida y me atrevo a empezarla! ⠀ Y hablando francamente te pregunto a ti: ⠀ Si tu tuvieras este camino. ¿Que harías? ⠀ Con el pasar de los años. Por que no eres un niño. ¿Que has hecho? ¿Que dice tu historia? ⠀ ¿Que palabras tendrías para mi? ⠀ ¿Elegirías un trabajo prestigioso o un viaje? ⠀ #landrover #landroverdiscovery @autoservicepanama
