My husband and I , with our dog, Tate, moved to Buenos Aires, 8 years ago. Life has never been the same since ~ Back in the USA ... life is still not the same !
It takes a lot of courage to release the familiar and seemingly secure, to embrace the new.
But there is no real security in what is no longer meaningful.
There is more security in the adventurous and exciting, for in movement there is life, and in change there is power.

February 16, 2010 - Life Goes On


February 16, 2010, my first blog post .
The first time Pup was featured on the internet.
The happy beginning of my Blog-Life.
I just read this lovely inspiring blog   which was one of the first blogs that I had read.
And what is even more special about that is that I got to meet her one day, here in Buenos Aires.
And she got to meet Pup.

So here we are , two years later .. still in Buenos Aires, sadly without Pup now... thinking of Change.

Life changes.. nothing ever stays the same, even the boring stuff.
We have to change with it or go mad.
So we came here and it was a fantastic adventure and fun / scary / exciting / confusing / frustrating / fun and wonderful .. It has been almost 5 years now.

Five very happy years with only one terrible sad event, our loss of Pup.

Things are not quite the same, a little different, life changes even when you were perfectly happy with the way things were .. so perhaps this is a good time for us to change things too.
Why wait for Life to surprise us, maybe we should make some changes first.

Who knows, where, when , how things change, but as they always say, Life Goes On .. so let's see if we can liven it up a little.
Do something new and crazy and make some changes of our own !

They say that change is good but I think it takes a lot of courage to take that first step. I say, take it. It will give you so much more to look forward to.

I have suffered ... or should I say 'revelled in' ... many a change. Thirteen or fourteen moves in as many years, change of jobs,even countries and each change has had it's benefits and drawbacks.

But I can assure you, if I could live my life over again, I wouldn't change anything. I have ended up where and how I wanted to be ... nearly.

Whatever change you decide is right for you, and whenever you choose to go through it, I wish you well!

I know no one more fearless about change than you. BRAVO.

NotesFromAbroad said...

Symdaddy, me too .. except for the sad parts, I would not change a thing.

Anony, bless you .. I am only fearless because I am with the most fearless person of all :)

God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.
