My new home is only the size of a province. A holiday destination, but why is enjoying the tropical weather and the stunning views not enough for me?
I think of the interview of 5 Flemish adolescents with the Pope, how he encouraged them to find happiness in life through discovering and nurturing their passion. Didn’t I find already my passion in life? My husband, my children, my jobs, my hobbies?
Moving here forces me to start the process over again, dig deeper: what makes me really happy and how can this serve me in my new “home country”? I try not to dwell on what I leave behind in Europe, but focus on the here and now.
I carry in my rug sack my talents, skills and experience.
Patience and stamina will unveil my destination.
