GREETINGS FROM: ALICANTE
Hi, darlings! This week has just flown by. It feels like life is finally back to some kind of normal. I’m back to work and routines. After a long spring in the quarantine, and finally being back out, running in our everyday life, it just hits me sometimes, did the quarantine even happen? In Spain, it was a little extreme obviously, but it’s crazy when you think about how we humans adapt to our current situation so quickly?
In the last couple of weeks, life has changed in several ways. I am so grateful that we are healthy and safe with everything happening in the world right now, we can not take anything for granted. Our lives have turned upside down several times over the last couple of weeks, but we are good and we are finding new solutions for everything. Such a cliche, but I do think everything happens for a reason. Things are always happening and usually, you are already halfway through them before you are realizing that.
This week is also a very special week in Alicante for me. My boyfriend and I are celebrating a year in Spain!? It feels crazy! Have I really lived here for a year already? Really? I can not believe it. I have been moving around the last couple of years, but I never thoughts in my wildest dreams that I would end up moving or living in Spain. With all that it comes with it, I am so glad that life pushes us in different directions and when we come to an intersection we need to choose what way to go. It is so scary, sometimes confusing, but also so interesting at the same time because the decision you make will form your life.
What if I never have moved to Spain? I moved to a country where I did not speak the language, with cultural differences and it made me so uncomfortable so many times. I got to know myself in so many new ways during this last year. We need to that remember life is not always what it looks like and that we are all do have our own problems. Unfortunately, they do not disappear just because you live next to the ocean and under palm trees hehe! Nothing can stop you when you finally realized that the direction you chose in that intersection was right. That is where I am right now.
My life is going 110 000 km an hour, I am running, no actually, I am flying. Exactly how I love it. Most important of all, I know after such a long time that I am on the right path, I know who I am and what I am doing, and it feels so good!
