Almost – This post is part of SoCS

Since my son’s visit earlier this month I have been very mindful. I didn’t see him since I left Denmark almost 3 years ago, which is very, very long time. Last year I was so lucky to have my daughter at visit here after not having seen her in almost 2 years, which I then felt were much too long time.

Now I do really miss both of my adult kids and wish that I could stay much more close to them and be there to support them, when they need that. Just to be able to visit each other without the need of travel between 1.400 km to 2.300 km first. I really think about leaving Spain to get more close to my kids and I think it will be to Germany, because my daughter lives there and the weather and humidity in Germany is better for my health than in Denmark, where my son is living.

I have been thinking about this for a while and even I love the sun, nice weather and beaches here in Spain, I feel the need to get closer to my kids. So now I’m started to look for houses in same area, where my daughter is living in South Germany close to Stuttgart. I will need to find a house, where I will be allowed to have both Odin and my two old cats, as need a garden to go out and enjoy the fresh air. My cats don’t run so far away any longer at adventures, but they are also almost 12 years old now. When they were younger, they had their adventures, but they don’t run so far now. They are both neutralized and stay close to their home, for what I’m happy.

If any of you have a chance to help me with a house in South Germany for rent, I will very grateful. Until I find one, I will safe money for the movement. It feels good to have taken the descision about this movement and I learned German in the school and used it again many years later, when I studied to be a teacher. So I think it will be back fast, when I start to use it again. Here where I live now, there are many people from Germany and when I meet them, we are talking in German together, which made me believe, that I will learn to use the language again.

I have learned a lot of Spanish, while living here, but still I feel my German is better than my Spanish. When I went to school as a child, we had both English and German with exams. We did also learn to read and understand some Swedish and Norwegian, so we had a chance to understand our neighbors. Later I took some classes in French, but I didn’t use that much for many years, so I’m not able to talk in French today.

What kind of languages did you learn in your life?

The last weeks have been busy, I have just announced my new shop open, and before that made a big job by creating many new jewelry, photos etc. before I was ready to say go go go with the new shop.

In the meanwhile I have tried to prepare myself for a more active life than usual. I walk more with my dog Odin, practice with him, because I want a good and well raised dog, as listen to me, because he know this will be the best for him.

As you might know, my health is not on the top. The doctors try to figure out, what more than rheumatism can give me the problems as I have. This takes long time with a lot of tests. Right now I need to wait few weeks more to get closer to their judgment. This is one of the reasons that I need to have raised Odin to behave good and walk nice, because I don’t know how fast my health can go worse than now.

Odin is a little boy at now two years, he acts like a teenager dog and need consequence in the raising of him. He weighs now around 45 kg, which is a little less than me, which demand that I use strategy with him.

I believe in raising without violence and screeming, I think love and kind treatment are the best for him and have worked hard the last two years to raise him to have a lot of self confidence, which I think is very important to have to avoid to get an aggressive dog.

As I told before I published my new shop today and I hope it will be possible to create a good shop there too. I have been selling at Etsy for almost two years now, so I found it could be fun to try something new as an extra chance for income.

In same time I have been thinking a lot about what to do more with my life. Which dreams I have, as I still have a chance to live out? Which souls are important to me? Which souls I miss here, even I live in the Sun in Spain with nice beaches, I still miss my family. I don’t wish to go back to Denmark, but I don’t feel sure if I wish to stay here for the rest of my life. This is some of the things, that I have in mind.

When I were younger, I had many dreams. One of them was to relocate and try to live in another country. This dream did come true. I wished to live with much better weather than Denmark could offer me, this came true too.

Now I just need to feel good, which of my dreams, I would like to live out, while I’m still able to do it.

What about your dreams? Do you live out your dreams? What kind of dreams do you have?

We need to live out our dreams, just don’t let them go…

Life Quality

Beach photo from where I live in Spain

I have been thinking about my life quality for a longer periode, which I find healthy for the mind.

What is good life quality?

What do I wish for my life?

How do I wish to live my life?

Where are my dreams now?

Are they the same dreams as I had just few years ago?

Maybe new dreams and if so, which?

What can I do to live out my dreams?

What can limit me in my dreams?

How can I overcome the fear, as also follow when new goals come into my life?

Which souls are very important for me?

How do I handle all those questions?

Right now I really don’t know, but I feel that I need to find my inner dreams and try to live them out too.

If you have followed my blog for a while you may know, that I relocated to Spain 2½ years ago from Denmark.

I had several good reasons for this. My health needed more warm, than Denmark could offer

I found a boyfriend from Spain, as I wanted to get a chance to know much better than possible just by visiting each other

I had a dream about being expat, when I once would become a pensioner

I’m not so old, but got my pension years ago caused my life experiences and my health

My kids were adult and raised to be independent and responsable souls, so I felt it was time to live out one of my dreams about being expat, which I did

So now I ask myself, what is good life quality for me?

It is never too late to have dreams, sometimes we forget this in our daily life, there are no spare time for dreaming, but one day we find out, that something is missing and need to find out what it is

I often use my walks by the beach to think and meditate, which I find very powerful

How to be happy and stay happy?

What makes me happy?

Which thoughts and dreams did I have earlier?

It seems to be a big job to find answers at all those questions, but I think it is important to live a life, where I feel satisfied and happy etc.

To find my dreams and make them into goals

What is good life quality for you?

Wish you nice dreams

Irene
