I've been having a lot of thoughts and questions lately about my life and what I want to achieve. I don't want to blame our decision to move to Zurich as the cause of all these. Sometimes though I feel that since our stay here is temporary that I can let things pass like you know, starting/sustaining a hobby, traveling, reading a book, doing something I really like but can't (and why? Oh, because we are only here temporarily so it would be impractical). And so I am left with a life not as exciting as I wanted it to be. And practically this is not right. We are here on a temporary basis, yet everything else is permanent. Now I feel bad that I have wasted time because I have been procrastinating. And all these thoughts of settling down "permanently" to be able to "continue living the life I've been dreaming of" is so stupid now that I think about it. I have my husband and son. They are my life and they are with me every waking day. They are all I need.
So starting today, I, the not-geo mother, will have to make do with what I have and be thankful. I am actually lucky to have been given the opportunity to be here. It opens up a window to more possibilities.
And oh, mindfulness, I keep forgetting about that, too.
So I end this post with my favorite quote.
"We grow great by dreams. All big men are dreamers. They see things in the soft haze of a spring day or in the red fire of a long winter's evening. Some of us let these great dreams die, but others nourish and protect them; nurse them through bad days til they bring them to the sunshine and light which comes always to those who sincerely hope that their dreams will come true." - Woodrow Wilson
PS. I want to thank my husband for all the support. I love you so much, more than you will ever know.
