Long ago, when I moved to Belgium, my uncle suggested that I should start a blog and write about my life abroad. The obstacles, the differences from my home land, the exciting and fun things. And so I went with it. I wrote some articles about living in Bruges, my favorite city.
I remember like it was yesterday, the day I was moving from Poland to Belgium. I had only two suitcases of most important essentials with me and my guitar. I was excited and nervous and a bit sad because I would live so far from my family.
Now, 7 years later, I move out of Belgium to Romania, with 10 suitcases, 2 guitars, 30 boxes, 1 husband, 1 child, some furniture and full small truck of our crap. I can’t believe we own so much, and I bet we’ll throw away half of it when moving in to the new apartment. For now it all has to pass through Germany, Austria, Hungary and Romania to reach its storage place. Cool cool cool cool cool. Like Peralta would say.
I never thought I would move to Romania, but I guess it’s going to be a good source for writing articles. The challenging language I have to learn, the new huge city I will have to get used to at least, the beautiful nature that’s just waiting for us – mountain climbing, seaside weekends.
Everything changes in life. And right now my address changes. It’s a hard change, but couple of smart people had once some smart things to say about change. They will keep me motivated for this 3 days road, that I am in the middle of right now.
“Life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes. Don’t resist them; that only creates sorrow. Let reality be reality. Let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like.”
– Lao Tzu
“Any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts.”
– Arnold Bennett
“Stop being afraid of what could go wrong, and start being excited about what could go right.”
– Tony Robbins
“If you don’t like something, change it. If you can’t change it, change your attitude.”
“You’ve done it before and you can do it now. See the positive possibilities. Redirect the substantial energy of your frustration and turn it into positive, effective, unstoppable determination.”
