Some 10 years ago, I took passport because I am planning to apply for a job abroad. I want to help the family financially and want to put up my own business. Putting up a business needs enough capital, and I cannot save if my the salary in my present job only covers my daily expenses. I took my chance applying for different jobs and in different country. But for family reason, I did not able to pursue it. When the agency called me to report for I already have an employer, I backed out because of my sister. I guess it was God’s plan because a year after my father got sick.
My passport is on standby for a decade now. I so wish I will be able to use it in the future. I did not renew it for years now because there is no use. Few days ago, I was cleaning my closet and saw my passport. It brings back the memories back then. I have lots of what if’s. Well, I do not have any regrets with my decision back then because family comes first. But if given the chance now, I still want to work abroad or try my lack abroad for better future. Thinking of these things makes me want to renew my passport this year. Hopefully I will be able to use my passport this year. My knight in shining armour come in a hurry. *wink
