Where has the time gone?
I can hardly believe it’s been two years ago since I arrived in Marrakech with just three bags, two of which went missing for two days (thank you AirFrance) to begin a new life here.
Two years since I gave up my unfulfilling, yet well-paid and secure career as a public employee to move to a new country where I had no job waiting for me.
Two years since I decided to follow my own dreams rather than those of others. To do something that others told me I was crazy to do (just because it was something they could never do).
Two years since I decided to stop complaining about the life I was living, and make changes to ensure I was living the life I wanted to live.
And I have no regrets.
For the past two years I’ve had a career I love. Accepted opportunities I would’ve never received had I not followed my dreams. Met people who have made similar decisions, and are doing absolutely fascinating things.
It’s gone by so fast. And I don’t regret my decision for one second.
Perhaps you’re thinking of making a major life change. And perhaps other people’s lack of willing to follow their dream is preventing you from doing the same. But if you want something bad enough, you’ll make it work.
I won’t promise that it will always be easy. But I do promise that it will be worth it.
