I am writing this a few hours before my scheduled flight. In a few hours, I will be some thousand meters above the ground on a plane. Let me share to all of you what I am feeling at this very moment.
I am sure you guys know how I am feeling right now, as I have been writing my excitement for the last weeks. My coming home is one of the best things that are happening to me this year. How I looked forward to this event in my life.
I feel like my life has just began. I am not taking the good things that has happened to me during the last years for granted. But I just feel like I am evolving into a different person quickly. When I left home, I was a husband. When I worked abroad, I was single again (I mean, I lived alone in a house again). Now, when i come back home, I will be a father.
First-time fathers usually adapt to their new role slowly, because they grow as their baby grow. They learn to nurture their small family life as they lived with their loved ones together. But for me, the baby has grown up when I see him, and I will have no more time to adapt to the role. I am the father, and I have to be it as soon as I see him in the airport.
My home will be different now. My married life has a new focus. My family will not be the same anymore.
I just can’t wait to be home and begin this exciting new life.
