Lesson 2: Stop and appreciate the beauty surrounding you.
Prague is amazing. The people are conservative and easygoing. The city itself is beautiful and there is never a lack of entertainment options. Even with all the city has to offer, I had to remind myself to enjoy myself!
I came to Prague with the intention to teach abroad. The plan was to take an in-class TEFL course; however, the school that offered the course also offered a “Jobs and Guidance” program that I decided to do instead. It was shorter and meant to be a refresher course. The program offered housing for 4 weeks and basic information about living and working in Prague.
I revamped my resume to focus on my previous teaching experience instead of my science background and within two weeks of being in the country I had found an opportunity teaching English.
During those first couple of weeks, I was extremely focused on finding teaching opportunities, reviewing grammar, and finding post program housing that I forgot to just take a deep breath and look around.
So I decided to wander, get lost, and enjoy the city. Best decision ever!! Sometimes I let the things going on in my life take over simply enjoying the moment.
So if you are traveling, working, or just busy with life. Take a moment and notice the beauty that is around you. You will not be disappointed. I wasn’t!!
