While life goes on, people change clothes, jobs, relationships, views and routine. Some go a bit beyond and change houses, neighbourhood, state and countries. And that’s what we’ve decided to do as a family: Move. Again.
Reasons were plenty – we’re searching for the quality of life that we strive to have. It’s incredibly easy to get used to life as it is now and not do anything about it – this is something we don’t want to settle down for even though we know that we will have to work hard to get where we want to get. So, we’ve decided to get up and move, believing this will be the best choice for our little family.
I am happy. I like changes. Even though they bring us new challenges and complicated situations, they also bring exciting changes, new places and people.
I am nervous. We’re about to have a baby and change our whole lives, jobs and language. It’s a lot to assimilate in such a short period of time. It came all together and I’m trying to focus on myself as the move day approaches.
I am excited. Excited for everything that is about to come, for having a baby of my own and a place where I feel is right for us now. For believing we are going somewhere that could be where we belong to. Excited because I know that the most difficult step is done: deciding to get up and leave.
I am a bit lost. This is not necessarily bad – I’m still discovering myself in the middle of everything else going on. I feel like I’ve come a long way and still have a long way to go. Being lost can be good.
I am hopeful. The future seems bright even though we must make tough decisions and focus on our little family instead of thinking of others. I feel constantly selfish even though I know it’s my life, our life, and we’re the only ones who will make things work out.
I am impatient. Have you ever had a baby? The last month has been full of little aches here and there and I really want to hold my baby now. I’m looking forward to one of the biggest adventures of my life.
I am proud. We’re one hell of a family and we work things out together. Nothing is too difficult that it can’t be dealt with and there’s always a solution to every problem. We’re constantly learning but look how long we’ve come! I am where I’m supposed to be, doing what I think is right. Nothing can ever take that away from me.
I am learning to focus more and more on us and I am very happy about it. If we don’t, no one will that’s for sure.
Make sure you come back for more updates – I have big plans and will work on them if it feels right, otherwise they will be put aside to give space for new ones. We’ll see where we end up in the future. For now, it’s Sweden!
Here’s the state of our house now that we are selling everything:
we leave in two weeks, wish me luck!
