I would say that we are just the collection of choices that we’ve made. And most choices bring some kind of change into our lives. I know it sounds very philosophical but I just wanted to write a small post about this topic since there are a lot of changes going on in my life at the moment.
Firstly I just quit my job where I had been for the past 7,5 years of my life which is at least for me a long time. A very interesting, happy, educational, challenging time filled of great memories and it’s quite weird not going back there. I will write more about this in a separate post.
Secondly something very different is going to be the next half a year of my life since I have never been abroad for so long. I’m extremely positive about it (especially since today morning we had 5 degrees Celsius, rain and a horrible wind) but it’s still a small leap into the unknown.
Thirdly a few weeks ago I sold my car which I had owned for roughly 6,5 years. I know that a car is just a car. A method of transport for getting from point A to point B. But through these years there were a huge number of memories associated with that car. Selling it of course doesn’t take them away but still, yet again quite a change in my daily life.
Since we are going away for so long time we will leave our cat with my mother. Although I believe that most of the cat owners agree that their small furry friend can be the cutest thing in the world at one moment and seconds later a total bastard (sorry 🙂 ) who for no reason just pushes something off the table or decides that 4 AM in the morning is a good time to start running around and making funny noises. Nevertheless, I will miss him, luckily he will have a good home meanwhile :).
I could go on but actually the idea behind all this is that we need changes in our lives. As human beings we need to move forwards, we are not meant to be standing still. And sometimes moving forwards needs some bigger decisions.
I wish you all great choices in your lives and remember there are no wrong ones. Either you win or you learn. As said in the beginning – each choice and experience makes us who we are.
