Today is the day, today is the day, today is the day!
I’ve thought about this moment for as long as I could remember. Honestly, I never imagined I would make it this far in my immigration journey.
Am I nervous? Hell yes.
Am I scared? Hell yes.
Will I falter? Hell no.
I have too much waiting for me at home to try to think of the worst case scenario.
The last couple of weeks I have been overwhelmed with feelings of excitement, joy, fear, and uncertainty. I can’t tell you how many time my eyes have watered up thinking about saying good bye to Haley and Luisa. Even though I know it will only be for a short time not seeing my girls everyday sucks.
On the upside I will get to see my mom and dad who I havn’t seen in almost 4 years.
I will get to meet many of my aunts, uncles and cousins.
I’ll be able to get Haley all the Day of the Dead trinkets her heart desires.
I’m visiting my roots and I will learn about my culture in a way that I would never be able to here in the U.S.
PLUS I l will be indulging in hopefully some of the BEST tacos, tortas, gorditas, and flautas around. (Haley probably won’t recognize me by the time I get home.)
Yes, today is the day, but I’ll make sure it’s a good day!
Wish me luck, look out for my pictures and videos on my Facebook or Instagram, and I’ll see you when I get back!
