This move is harder than I thought it was going to be. I have been doing the 'mental' work for this move for sometime now. And the last week it's been the 'pysical' part. As I am sitting here packing it's hitting me really hard. That once again I am picking up roots again.... where will it take me this time?
I grew up in the Caribbean. When I was 15 years old, I moved to the Netherlands. It tore me apart, I didn't want to leave the islands. I had good friends there. My earliest memories are from there. Then I tore up roots in the Netherlands 6 years later, to move to the US. Left good friends and family behind. I have been here now 26 years, and once again I am tearing up roots. But it gets harder as I get older.
I am joyful, but also scared to death....
