Moving to Portugal
It’s been 7 months since we moved to Setubal. We did not plan to move here or any other country for that matter. It just happened because our landlord in Holland decided to kick us out and we couldn’t find another place.
When I received the notice that our rent was cancelled I was on a business trip in Portugal for the first time. After making endless phone calls looking for another house a thought entered my mind: why not move to Portugal? It’s interesting how fast the ego gets involved and starts telling stories about why moving to Portugal is not a good idea. A debate was born between my ego and the place where my thought came from. Being a Libra doesn’t really help if you have to make a life changing choice. Wandering through the streets of Lisbon and weighing all the pros and cons I came across this sign. I knew in a heartbeat I had to move to Portugal, without a single doubt. It then took me less than 48 hours to find the place where I’m living now. I choose to believe that this was a sign from the Universe guiding me here. Thank you Universe, woohoo!
A lot has happened the past 7 months and the truth is that I feel more at home in Portugal than I did in Holland for the last few years. I have met so many beautiful and inspiring people, made new friendships, created a new business, hosting a successful podcast show and launching my Unleash The Hero event in November are just a few things that fills me with gratitude and puts tears in my eyes as I’m writing this story.
I know that I am exactly where I need to be and that hasn’t been the case in a long time! It’s a feeling of gratitude, belonging, joy and love. So this is me saying thank you to all that is, all that brought me here, all the new people in my life and everything that is waiting to be discovered.
Sometimes all you need is a few seconds of insane courage and something great will come out of it!
