I’m about to make some huge changes. If the numerous decisions of my life were arranged as emails in my Gmail account, I’d star this one and create a folder called ‘HUGE CHOICES’ and file it in there along with ‘Not moving to Jamaica in 1998’ and ‘Taking Claudia out for first date’ etc.
I’m leaving the UK and going to live in Scandinavia with my wife; Denmark to be precise. Am I scared? YES!! Of course I am. Am I excited? Majorly! It’s going to change everything. The way I work. Our lifestyle. Our future. I believe strongly in everything having its season; its moment. I also subscribe to a kind of destiny. ‘Kind of’ because, I believe we have the power to change it, but somewhere way below the surface flows an undercurrent that slowly takes us there. I believe my wife and I are supposed to do this! Every little piece of this move’s puzzle, has just fallen so neatly into place…it’s scary!
My wife: Turkish, Danish, Norwegian, Swedish.
Me: British (Londoner…SOUTH Londoner to be precise!!!) Jamaican, with Cuban and Indian heritage.
We decided we’re gonna print off some business cards for the kids, so when they’re asked that age old question, So where are you from? They can just present it and cut out the ten minute description.
I guess the feel and direction of this blog will change with the move. I’ll keep you up to speed.
