I am as crazy as they come
I have been living in Munich, for far too long. I sometimes feel like Munich is more my home than Florida. I miss my family and friends more than anything in the world but there is something about the Munich air that really makes me warm inside. Let’s get down to business, I get asked often about traveling and leaving. Most of the e-mails and letters I receive are from people asking me “Should I leave?” “Should I go?” “What would you do?” The thing is that if you are sending me these messages you already deep down have an answer and it is YES.
I believe there are two types of people in this world. The people that go and the people that stay. I like to think that I myself am a “goer”. I may not be an expert world traveler but if there is enough time and a slight hint of adventure I am 70% down to go. I love when people try to tell me things like….I have to go to school….I have to pay this bill…I don’t have a passport…..I can’t quit my job. Then why are you even playing with the idea of leaving? If in your head you already have a STOP sign, why are you bringing it up?
I think that you should be forced to leave your comfort zone once in your life (no I am not talking about going to the next town over). I am talking about going to a place where you don’t speak the language, where food looks strange and people dress crazy and and and… THE LIST GOES ON. I think then you would have a much deeper appreciation for the world and you would realize how insignificant a lot of your problems are.
I get asked often…What would I have done if I did not move to Germany? I mean there are many answers to this question and I think the most accurate ones would be…..Married, living in a nice house, driving a nice car and getting my manicure every 14th and 21st of the month OR that I would actually have a successful career and have lots of money. I do sometimes sit and think about my life and what would happen if I decided not to come to Germany, if the STOP sign in my head got the best of me and I stayed inside of my comfort zone. The thing about it is that yeah MAYBE I am taking a little longer to figure my life out, MAYBE I am making “not so smart” decisions and MAYBE I am being a little foolish with my time BUT I could never EVER imagine my life without Germany being a part of it.
So to answer that forever looming question “Would you leave?”
Yes, I would 😀
Love yall ❤
