Moving abroad is not traveling. When you go for a vacation you don’t even think about the people at home, but when you leave “your people” and your comfort zone everything is different. However, “missing home” is something that can be avoided, since once you move, your “home” changes.
We all miss people, friends and family, but I never knew how people missed the country or the city or their own building. I always thought the idea of having a great life is knowing how to feel at home everywhere you go and most of the time I managed with creating a perfectly livable and enjoyable space for me even when I had to live with the suffocating temperatures in Dubai.
Wherever you go, go with all your heart.
I know that most of you want to feel at home wherever they go, but the truth is that when you move to a new place you get to “feel more than at home”…While at home you had comfort and coziness, by moving you can still get those but, you have the possibility to make your life much better since it is a new unknown amazing world out there …How to do that?
Enjoying life is quite difficult if you spend every second of it complaining or thinking about how scary tomorrow might be, or how you miss yesterday. So, what you can do is stop! Just find what you like about the places you ended up in and enjoy it! Are you in Barcelona? Enjoy that bloody sangria and contemplate Dali and Gaudi while being at the gorgeous beach! Are you in Asia?Visit the temples and try to understand Buddhism while enjoying tasty food.
Do things! Learn things!
Do something new and learn something instead of seeing bad aspects and complaining about everything! There are so many things to see and do that you won’t have time to complain anymore. You have to feed your soul and your heart with the beauties history, art, sports and whatever you are interested in, gave us.
Every day is a journey, and the journey itself is home.
Just by stepping into a museum you get the chance to hear something you never heard before, and that is very important. Living and working just for eating, drinking and sex does not fulfill your superior being needs. So, learn, do, laugh, play, have fun, enjoy everything that was living in a new place brings you!
Concentrate on what is positive!
There is no spot in this world that will be perfect for more than a couple of weeks. Even the most gorgeous islands that now you find heavenly have bad parts. So, instead of searching for whatever is negative around you, concentrate on what is positive about you and believe me, everywhere in the world you can find special things to see and to be amazed by, as long as you are open-minded and you want to see them.
