The Beginning (2)

Let's start from from the beginning. I still remember when me and my friends went to watch the Sex and the city 2. movie in Chelsea (you can guess how long ago I started) But in the first 5 minutes I saw the trailer of the movie Eat, pray, love.. and I still can hear the sentence saying: “Let yourself to go!” That was a sign I needed! That time I was working in a restaurant at Notting Hill and I felt I'm the hamster in the wheel that just keep turning and turning and the time just passing by. From the very first moment I felt this movie is about me – whatever is the end of it. I could easily imagine myself as Julia Roberts craving for freedom, finding the way out of daily problems and live the Life in its wholeness. I wanted to take a deep breath and to feel I'm still alive!

After a couple of weeks I got an email from an agency that they were looking for girls to work in Greece as a hostess/dancer. That's it. The decision has been made. Even I knew later I'm gonna be labeled as a bitch I chose to walk on my own path without reference to anything or anybody.

I've never had the money to travel as much as I wanted and now I have the perfect offer to spend 3 months summer on the beach and I'm earning money with?! I'm in!
I didn't have a single thought that it can be a scam or it could end in a very bad way. I trusted my instincts. I called the woman from the agency and she answered all my questions and ensured me they are waiting for me at the airport in Athens and they take me to Loutraki were the club is located.
So I quit my job, I bought my tickets, I told everyone I go for a long holiday, I packed my suitcase and jumped in the middle. That's how everything started...

Still today I have no regrets. If I have a chance to change my life, probably I would do everything in the same way. It's not only the easy money, not even the people I've met and the places I've seen, but all the life lessons I've learned during this period. They made me strong without losing myself. They opened my eyes but keep me cautious. I've learned how to handle my limits and how to push my boundaries. But most importantly I've learned a lot about myself.
