Moving to Europe
By Elizabethjlocke on March 07, 2013
Moving to Spain didn't happen overnight; it evolved over the course of a year and took many differents shapes (au pair, international student, writer, etc.) and places (France, Italy, Chile, etc).
Now that I've decided to teach in Spain through the CIEE program, I feel good about my decision. It's risky, yet safe. (I am moving with a friend and will have a roommate.) Crazy, yet practical. (I'll be paid a salary and have health insurance, which I need for obvious reasons.)
After spending five years trying to keep up with a career, dating life and social calendar, I'm happy to be free for a little while. Free to learrn a new language, travel to exotic places and grow as an individual. Free from the pressure I have created or accepted as truth in terms of defining success, beauty and happiness. The most beautiful part of life is it's constant movement. We are not defined by a single heartbreak, job or sickness unless we choose to be. Each day is a chance to turn things around and live a brave life.
As you think, you travel, and as you love, you attract. You are today where your thoughts have brought you; you will be tomorrow where your thoughts take you.
