Walk with me...

Follow my Journey:

I blog about change. Change which is often so uncomfortable but still inevitable. Change that is sometimes a choice and sometimes forced onto you. Change can hurt but opens doors, gateways and avenues to new opportunities, new perspectives and a new you. 

After more than six years living in Namibia I am moving to Germany. While the move to Southern Africa years ago was well planned and prepared, the move “back” (oh, I hate that expression) is different: in a matter of weeks it was decided and neither job nor house are in place for now. Many, many blogs talk about how to prepare for living abroad, few give information on the practical side of moving “back” and hardly any speak about how it FEELS to return home, a home that has changed and you have changed as well.

As much as I am sad to leave I am looking forward to the experience, the new views, the new ME in an old (?) setting. Follow me and my story. I will alternate between videos and articles and would highly appreciate your feedback and comments!

The "Heart" Goodbye

Saying goodbye makes you say the important things

Today I was sitting in the car and started to practise my goodbye speech to my friends in Windhoek. I have been saying it a lot in the last few days: Goodbyes are hard, difficult, sad and draining. But I realized that this is not entirely true. I realized that saying goodbye is beautiful. There have only been few moments in which I have been so aware as I have been in the last few days a few times in my life before. So alive. So clear on everything that I am feeling, saying and experiencing. Saying goodbye makes you say the important things: how much you love someone, what you appreciate about them, what they mean to you... I know now that saying goodbye is beautiful. I am almost exploding with gratitude for what I was able to experience, to feel, to see and to receive. Being aware and in the moment was the greatest gift in the last few days. I hope that I can stay like that a little longer! Because in the end that is what it is all about. So cheers to all the feelings, all the tears and all the love. Keep them coming.
