I left one country for another – again. Last time was 16 years ago and I had no idea what I was doing. Besides, I brought children, maybe I was courageous, maybe just naive. I said I was never going to do such a big thing again, it was that hard.

Now I did it again and, as with the last time, it went really fast. The idea presented itself and I acted rapidly without thinking too much and things evolved with breath-taking speed. This time I am not as naive so therefor better prepared.

There was an impulse and it started an avalanche; everything fell into place and things happened that moved me in the right direction. That said, it wasn’t easy, sometimes it was outright scary. But that’s the thing with treading a new path, once you are on it you can’t go back. Forward is the only possibility no matter how hard and scary it might seem.

Now here I am, happy as a clam, exhilarated and exhausted. I did it! Not that I know what I shall do next, I take one day at a time and figure it out as I go along.
