I know I've only been here a week, yet I can't help but feel this was a really good decision. One that will change my life for the better whatever happens.
In just over a week, we've started to uncover a new city, a new region in the world. I've navigated myself around this town on the wrong side of the road. I've seen amazing sites. I've seen all three kids grow up just a little. I've seen Skip grow a little too. My mind has been opened.
Leaving was really scary. We had a good life, lots of friends, wonderful and supportive family. It was sad to leave that all behind. I see possibilities for us here, though, to live a great life and see so much and learn so much. We've brought all those people with us on our computer through Skype, Facebook, email and this blog, anyway.
I'm excited by possibilities I couldn't imagine a week or so ago. I know there are going to be weeks when I feel isolated or homesick, but that will pass.
Sometimes you have to push yourself, make yourself uncomfortable, feel the fear and do it anyway. See what your made of.
The good things in life don't often fall in your lap, you need to take risks and work for them
Go on, push yourself today. Push the boundaries and see the world open up in front of you.
