Getting Ready!

Posted on: June 20, 2011

I’ve always argued that packing is the easiest part of any trip. Actually, I’ve never minded packing; it has always been fast, fun, and exciting; it’s unpacking that I’ve hated most!

Not this time!

I’m actually packing to move back to my home country, which should be something extremely happy and exciting to do! However, the mixed feelings I’m having are taking over the excitement and leaving me with complete numbness and confusion. I’m leaving home to go home! I’m leaving work to go work. I’m leaving friends to meet friends. I’m leaving stability to live stability… True, but…

This time I find packing painful. This time I find packing extremely slow and hard. This time I can’t wait to Unpack!! It’s not because I’m eager to leave, not at all. It’s just because I’m eager to stop waiting and thinking of unknowns. It’s just because I’m eager to skip painful goodbyes and hard separations. It’s just because I know that the moment I reach home all will be ok, all will be fine… And it’s just because I  know that the moment I reach home there will be no more waiting, and no more goodbyes…

I’m getting ready to leave home in order to move back home. I’m getting ready to wave goodbye to a good part of me in order to hug a better part of me! I’m getting ready!!!

Leaving this place so soon? 😦
You’ll be missed..
Anyways, I hope all gets better when you arrive.
Have a safe trip. 😉


Saying goodbye is unbelievably hard , but this is how life is , right ? we meet new people and then we say good bye , but a true friend and a mom exactly like you made a difference in my life and that is why you’ll always stay in my heart .
We must stay in touch and someday I’ll visit you in Lebanon.
Thank you for everything .
I love you so much ❤


Yesterday I went out with a lot of my friends it was my goodbye. I never expected that saying goodbye would be that hard but just the thought of leaving all the ppl that love u and all the ppl that u love makes u want to cry and that’s wat happened to me yesterday I cried in public. But some ppl just stayin our hearts no matter wat happens I love you miss chantal and I hope u enjoy lebanon. And I love you all and I hope u remember me forever


I guess the best part in all this is… you will never say goodbye again (hopefully)! Waiting for you 🙂


Well, with my eyes and heart fixed on Dubai, on my great family, friends and students in Dubai, saying goodbye hurts a lot. But with my eyes and heart fixed on Lebanon, on my other great family and friends in Lebanon, saying goodbye doesn’t seem hurtful; it actually fills my heart with happiness, excitement, and hope.

Thank you all for your love and support. Dubai, see you later. Lebanon, here I come 😀


why does the word GOODBYE have to be so hard. We will all mess u!
I hate the fact that u r leaving, but i love the fact that u r following ur dreams.
Hopefully we will keep in touch.
u might be gone but ur heart and soul will always be with us.
