To move to another country and start up a life in new surroundings, environment and culture is a gigantic change. It affects the body, mind, emotions and soul. As I’m writing this, I’ve been living in Las Vegas for almost two years and I’m still settling in here. I’ve moved to a new country, city, home, climate, language, currency, metric system, sizes of everything, moved in with a man after having lived alone for years. I’ve moved away from my son who I used to see on a regular basis, and I’ve moved away from my family, my close friends, my familiar network. Nothing is the same – well yes, the language is, but American English is NOT the same as the British English, I was brought up with. Even that has been up for adjustment.
My days and life have changed radically and not many things are similar to what they used to be as when I was in Denmark and to how I used to do. It has taken a long time and thought process to work out what I really want and how I want to construct my days. It’s not a walk in the park and I’m definitely not there yet. But what I did work on before I left Denmark was to become aware of which elements of my daily routines I wanted to bring with me and implement asap upon arrival. Things that I knew would be possible, no matter the environment and surroundings. Physical activity, movement, gratitude, good nutrition, seeking nature and sleep are cornerstones that I had already implemented a couple of years before I left Denmark. It was such a relief and empowerment to me that these were in my awareness and ready for use from day one. Besides, I decided before departure that I would say yes to my husband each and every single day. My life, my change, my choice, my kindness towards myself.
I didn’t have a job of any sorts the first year I was here, because my immigration process had to be finalized and I wasn’t allowed to work nor travel abroad until my Green Card was granted which happened in October 2019. So my days had to be constructed very differently than what I was used to.
I want to make my days count
Slowly, I realized what a great gift and opportunity it was to start making amendments that would be more meaningful and valuable to my wellbeing and development, according to the place I had reached in life. It became clear to me that I wanted to have a different balance between work, fun/joy/playing and love. Well, that I would actually start to IMPLEMENT much more fun, joy, playfullness and love and REDUCE the amounts of work, now that I had a given and forced chance to start from scratch. I want to make my days count. Every day. And I want to do the best I can to be kind and good to myself which will automatically spill over onto my surroundings. The true way for me to do so, is by engaging in meaningful activities and tasks and by allowing more and new people into my life that I can believe, love, trust and feel safe with.
Let’s have fun
In this section, I invite you to come along with me on my journey to make my days count. I will be writing about health, nutrition (and of course share some of my favorite recipees with you ;-) ), supplements, love and sex, entrepreneurship, creativity, travel, and much more. I will interview some of the wonderful entrepreneurs I know to show you that entrepreneurship is defined by the individual, because not two human beings are alike.
I also invite you to reach out to me when questions arise and you want more enlightenment that may help you on your travel.
Are you ready to have fun with me?
