Full Moon seen from my garden
When I look back at my life, I see a lot of experiences, some very good and some less good. We need to experience both to appreciate a good life.
I have never wished to end up my time in this life with regrets. When I come so far, I hope, that I will be able to say; Yes, you did try a lot in this life and you did learn much, but there will be no regrets.
Without having the courage to do something different, it will be difficult to develop ourselves. Sometimes we need to just jump out, where we don’t know, if we will drown or we will raise again. I will not say, this always have been easy, but it was never boring and without these experiences, I would not have been the soul, as I am today.
Of course there are experiences, as I would like to have been without, but that is life, whatever I liked it or not. I did grow by my mistakes and I learned not to repeat the same mistakes, so now on to the next…..
Some young people have a dream about creating a family and maybe buy a house and live there for their lifetime. This life will also give challenges, just in another way. These people often wish to live close to family and friends and don’t have dreams about seeing and living in other places in the world or doing a difference in our world. They are satisfied with this kind of life, which is good for them.
Other young people have big dreams about traveling and living different places in our world. Work several places and maybe one day also create a family far away from everything well known to them. They don’t have the feeling of belonging only one place, but wish to challenge themselves to learn new all the time.
Even we pass our youth, it is still allowed to have dreams and who is to tell us, that these dreams are not possible? Only ourselves.
Sometimes life decide for us and maybe we were not awake to make better decisions, while we were young and maybe also more naive. We don’t need to give up our dreams, even they will demand some hard work and life-changing acts by us, before they can come true. It is not impossible, it is all about, how much do your dream means to you? Are you willing to do, what is needed to do, to be able to live out your dream? If not, your dreams are utopia and not realistic.
If you really have a dream, why not do your best to live your dream?
Many years ago, when I started to get problems with my health, I started dreaming again. I dreamed about, how I would love to live in a place with much sun, nice temperatures and not so ice-cold winters. This could maybe be possible, when I became old enough to be a pensioner, I thought.
Destiny showed up, before I thought this possible, actually many years before usual age for being pensioner. My health became worse and I have had my part of heavy challenges in life and together this made me in need to become an early pensioner.
Few years after I became a pensioner, my dreams went from being dreams to a possible reality. My economy was secured for surviving, almost no matter where I would like to go. I lived inside EU, where there are rules for the inhabitants about, where it is allowed to move to and in same time bringing your own pension.
As you might know, I chose to move to Spain. It was very different for me and filled with lots of challenges. I didn’t speak Spanish, but other languages, as I thought could be usable until I learned Spanish. New experience – not many Spanish people are speaking more than Spanish. So I had much new to learn.
Today I live here without a very good Spanish, but I’m learning all the time. So no matter where in the world we are living, there will come challenges. Some people might call this problems – but I prefer to call it challenges. For me this has a more positive sound.
To stay positive also in the middle of challenges, help so much to keep up the good mood. Nothing is eternal, tomorrow will be a new day with new experiences, if we wish to – of course.
