So since moving across continents, adjusting and making my new life work has basically been foremost on my mind.
There’s been change, joy, happiness, sadness, nostalgia, excitement, adventures had and to be had, home sickness and a cocktail of varying emotions that bombard me at various tempos.
But all in all even when it’s not been fun, it’s been adventurous. Everyone asks me what the biggest thing has been for me or what the most culture shock I have experienced is and sometimes I feel like my answers leave them disappointed lol. But that’s just me though! I try not to let too much get to me and when it does, I take my time to process it that at the end of the day it ends up being anti-climatic for everyone involved lol 😆.
But it helps me process , cope and that works for me just fine. I try not to let the wonders and faults of my new home pass me by, because I want this feeling and excitement to last longer. I don’t want to be jaded just yet, so I stop to smell the roses and acknowledge the strengths and weaknesses that she offers.
Everyone keeps telling me I had better start adapting and changing with the flow and I agree to adapting but I don’t have to change and lose myself just so that I can fit in. That’s not my way. I believe my new home and I shall come to adjust to one another’s curves till we both fit and work well together.
All in all it’s been wonderful traveling here and experiencing this way of life that’s so much more different and yet not so different at the same time.
I am curious to learn about your experiences moving, even if it’s next door lol.
