When it comes to relocating, these feelings become a hundred times more intense. The journey and expenses involved in relocating makes it the least desirable decision to make.
Boxing up my belongings and making the six hour journey to the UK wasn’t really difficult for me probably because I like to travel. however tackling the challenge of building a new home far from all that is familiar, is an entirely different story. This final phase of creating a home is an on-going process, for some of us it takes us a while to get all settled for others it’s a smooth sailing process.
It all finally comes together when we find something we can connect to, something that gives our life a purpose, for some of us its new friends, a job, a place of worship, a school or just a new lifestyle. For me it was a mixture of several factors but the most important was having my daughter she motivates me to be the best example I can be for her.
