Short and To The Point

Those that really know me, know that I keep it one hundred and there is never any shame in my game —- no matter the situation.  My Egyptian journey has come to an abrupt halt by my choice.  Even in 97 degree weather one can get “cold feet”.  Trust me when I tell you.    Aywa, (yes) that’s what I got last night. At 9:40am I boarded a flight to Munich, where I sit at the moment waiting for my flight to SFO. A few months ago when I announced the wedding to my brother (10 years my senior) he said, “I don’t know why I’m trippin Kathy.  You have been known to walk off from niccas, houses and cars.  If you ain’t feelin it, you cut your losses and keep it movin’” Yes, brother, that’s me!

I didn’t want a lot of going back and forth with Hamada  nor dealing with  any  protesting and arguments So I simply said to him,  “I’ve got an early doctor’s appointment near the Hilton.  So I need to get an Uber by 7”  That was my strategy since the Hilton is only a few minutes from the airport. Also considering, he had the sensor to take the elevator down from the penthouse so my planning had to be on point.  My mind wasn’t crystal clear but thankfully, I had my girl DeeDee coaching me.   I left everything, only stuffing what I could in my MCM backpack, a few personals, no liquids, my Italy and Negril folders, my beloved 7 silver bangles, a couple watches  and the clothes on my back.

This isn’t to say, this is it but this is it for now.  My heart goes out to Hamada and his family but at the end of the day it’s all about self-preservation.

Thanks again to all that sent congrats! It really meant a lot and I’m glad you enjoyed my journey as short-lived as it was.  I did too!   There’s always a few naysayers and I’m sure they  are jumping for joy right about now. 🤦‍♀️ Anyway, as they say these days” It is what it is”.

  7. I was happy for you when you announced your impending marriage and I’m happy to support your decision to walk away. I also had the same feeling with my first husband. Despite having second thoughts about marrying him, I did it anyway. That marriage ended in divorce. I’ve since learned that you have to listen to your inner voice and I applaud your courage.

  10. Hi Kat, 😢

    I am somewhat saddened to learn that our Kattrax version of a Fairy Tail wedding did not take place. However I am also happy that “You” followed your heart ♥️ in the moment and went what felt felt what was right for you. That is most first and foremost the most important thing. I’m holding you and Hamada and your family in my prayers 🙏🏾. Sincerely,

  13. Kat,

    Good for you for following your gut! When I was much younger, I lacked the self-confidence to go with my instincts. Now that I am older, or rather more mature, that little voice has become my reliable guide!

    Looking forward to celebrating with you in Negril!

    Peace & Blessings,
