This week, life took an interesting turn. This turn will take me to Vancouver in January, where I’m likely to stay for at least half a year. And I’m excited. More excited than I’ve been in a long time actually.
Due to this life changing event, this blog got to see the light of day. Why, you ask? Because change is scary. No matter how excited you might be, change is scary, and writing about it makes it less so. Also, me moving to Canada has changed the way I view life in a sense. It has proven something to me that I’ve known in theory for a long time, but that I never really fully believed in until now. That you really can transform a dream into reality.
Oh, who am I kidding… more than anything, this blog is for my dear mother. It’s here to make her less sad that I’m leaving, and to keep her calm while I’m away. And I figured if I start slow already, three and a half months before I’m off, she and the rest of my lovely family might not even notice that I’m gone.
So what will this blog be about then? Canada, of course. Traveling, sure. But mostly, it will be about how to live life bravely. Because this is what I want – I want to be brave.
I hope to have you with me on this journey, and that you will want to share your own stories of how you’re living bravely.
Lots of love,
