So, it’s been two months already, us living in the US. Many people ask me how I feel, if we’re settled already. I always feel a little rushed. Should I be? Am I too slow?
Funny how moving countries works. It’s just like all things new. A new house, a new job, a (new) baby, moving to the other side of the world. You close your eyes, count till ten and just do it. Find things out, move things around (both literally and symbolically). Just getting up in the morning, living your life, only a little different. You celebrate little successes, you learn from small set backs.
I said it before and I say it again, only now it’s not a wish but a truth: home is where the heart is. And I’m not going to lie, having your belongings around helps too.
So, how do I feel? At ease and confident about what the future holds. Am I settled yet? Far from. And that’s ok.
One step at a time, with hopefully lots of little successes to celebrate.
