Funny how your mind sometimes works.... This morning I saw InnerZing’s (www.facebook.com/innerzing) daily message on Facebook - FEELINGS!
Ha... it took me decades to allow myself to feel, mainly because of a lot of deep hurts I experienced as a child and teen. Don't get me wrong I had a great childhood... my mum was a loving Supermum.
Just got side tracked....
Sooo.... my dad left Switzerland (and us) to make more of his life back in Italy, where he originally came from. He only stayed there for a few years, as things didn't work out as he imagined work wise. Sooo he left for South Africa, where he built a business from scratch...all worked out for him in the working world.
30 years later he feels the pull to move back to where he was born, to be with family. Yep, next month another big move is happening, his bags are packed, moving box is on the ship and here he is starting yet another "new" life, where he began his journey....going full circle.
Sooo, where does that leave me? As I too (with my husband) packed my bags and shipped a box over the ocean all the way from Switzerland to Australia nearly 30 years ago. And yes, the older I get, the more I feel the pull to go "back" more often.
Now to my thoughts... if you are still with me ...
Would I have gone down the spiritual path "back home"? Or were all the experiences of making it work in a strange country with a strange language necessary? Meeting All the beautiful people I otherwise never would have met?.... Somewhere along the time-line we all made a pact to meet in sunny Australia at that in QLD and live it up.
Interestingly enough my closest friends are from different parts of the world, just like us.... one day packed their bags and off they went.
Sooo.... if the travel bug bites you, either to have a complete Sea Change or go for a holiday, visit a different place, even a different suburb....Go! You never know what or whom you find.
I love where I live.... I am grateful for being able to visit my "home country" often.....
The future is written.... but not in stone.
Love & Light
