[ Transformation ] • #Dubai ha subito una rapida e inattesa trasformazione, da umile villaggio di pescatori ad una delle più cosmopolite ed innovatrici città del mondo.
Dal 3000 a.C., gli abitanti di Dubai si sono sempre guadagnati da vivere pescando, costruendo navi e commerciando via mare, prima della scoperta del petrolio nella fine degli anni ‘60.
Oggi sappiamo tutti quale punto di riferimento all’avanguardia sia diventata, eppure basta trascorrere qualche ora del deserto per riportare le lancette indietro di qualche secolo e fantasticare su come fosse la vita prima della trasformazione.

🇬🇧After flying yesterday 4 sectors and fainting into bed,I shortly went through the day in my head. I flew with an amazing girl, who is also flying for many years now and has such a positive personality. Working and talking with her inspired me to write this post. Unbelievable, how a decision in your past can have such a huge impact on your present. Many things happened during these 5 years,since I started flying. Imagine, if I don‘t quit from WizzAir and I stay.My batchmates there are pursers now.What if I go with my friend to the Etihad interview when I rather waited for Emirates to happen?She is now in Abu Dhabi, flying as first class cabin crew.
What if I stay a little more at Emirates and change my manager?I would be on business class by now. Do you think all these things fill me with regret? I can honestly say not even for a single second. I am so happy I chose this path. As a teenager, I never would have thought I would live in Dubai, Germany or Austria instead of New York.My childhood self would be surprised as hell if she could take a look into the future.
I was the one at school, who could never be persuaded to study German. As an adult, the will to find my way back to flying in a new country seemed to be the best motivation to learn the language. The experience I gained through these years will be much more exciting for me, than any promotion would ever be. I fell in love with the German language,I can finally use it (until I am not as good in it as I am in English, you won’t hear me bragging how good I think I am).But: I get new challenges and learn new words here everyday.
I even surprise myself,when I succeed in these situations, using a language, that 1,5 years ago I could only say „Ich heiße Lidia“. Don‘t compare yourself to others. You may do that now, seeing others‘ fancy pictures. But please,be unique instead. Create a life that makes you happy,not one that pleases others.
You won‘t be successful, when you get the position, the reward, the car, the apartment or the dress that someone on instagram has. Success is when you follow your inner voice, that says go and try it. Dare to live. Take the road less traveled. Don‘t be afraid!🇭🇺lent
