This is something I wrote back in July, while contemplating almost a year of living abroad:
What have I learnt out of my experience of coming to Germany?
I've learned that when it comes to making big decisions, don’t get sucked into something just because it sounds exciting, or you don’t have any other options, or “someone” thinks it s a good idea…
really take it to heart, sit with it, see how it feels. You can even go as far as imagining yourself there, what would it be like, what are the potential struggles? Go online and find communities involved in this area/topic-talk to the people, see what they say, try to stay objective.
1. Every decision has to come from a calm, peaceful place, in order for it to be the right one. As you are making a decision, ask the universe to give you three clear signs that it is right/not right for you at this time.
2. After having made the decision, ask God for all protection and easing the transition into the new state of being/moving/new chapter of your life, removing the obstacles and surrounding you with the right people.
3. Trust in the process and know there are no mistakes. If it doesn’t feel right, you are always free to leave and start something new in your life. Always.
