The ‘Glory Days’:
A certain time where you reminisce the good old days. When everything was easy. You didn’t have any worries in the world. No bills, no debts, nothing. Something to look back to and think “Man, I miss them days”. Going down nostalgia lane and reminiscing your school days maybe, or just aching for one last moment to visit the place where you had your first kiss, or the house where you grew up. The memories will never die. They will always endure in your heart.
Life is a collection of moments, lived one moment at a time. In China, I walked the ‘Great Wall’, mingled with departed sovereignty at the ‘Ming Tombs’, reflected in the ancient Monarch’s city and dined under the ‘Middle Kingdoms’ sun. Life is a collection of moments, lived one moment at a time, but several of these most prodigious moments were spent among new friends and classrooms in China.
With departure looming in the distance, one may experience a little anxiety but that is to be expected of course. I had no experience teaching before-hand and was a little nervous about how I would be received by my students? Would they like me, what about our lessons together, would they learn anything from me? All these anxieties and worries were laid to rest when I first met them all!
Some of the humblest and kind people of all, live in china, and there is no lack of generosity either. If you open your heart and are willing to reach out, the time you spend there will most certainly have to be included in what you consider to be your ‘Glory Days’. The memories will never die, they will always endure in your heart.
