Moving to a new place.

Posted August 16, 2018 from Nepal

Have you ever drank a sip of coffee from a person next to you? You will enjoy the sip, but you will miss the taste of your own cup. Though it tastes same, you will discover a new taste within that sip. The taste of excitement, the taste of confusion, the taste of misery and the taste of feeling lost. Perhaps, this is my condition at the moment. I have moved into a new country, the country that excites most of the young hearts; Thailand. Two weeks ago, I was in safe heaven, my home, my family. Today, I am miles apart from them. This is a weird feeling, where you are not willing to believe the reality.  But as time passes by, this reality will be something new and refreshing. I am ready for the new adventurous journey and I am willing to experience every bit of it joyfully. There might be days where sky won't look blue or trees won't look green, like it always does, but I will always keep my imagination wide open. With the positive energy, I believe I can write more blogs where I can share more of journey in Thailand.

Change is about accepting you need the change, once that is done adapting becomes easy.

Hi Melissa,

You have the heart of a poet and a philosopher. I love the photo of you looking out at your new, huge city no doubt full of possibilities, given your sense of adventure and your ability to hold and savour past, present and future in your own cup of coffee. I look forward to more of your news. And thanks for La Vie en Rose with such a talented musician.

Hi Melissa,

Welcome to World Pulse:-) Thanks for sharing your transitional story about your new adventure. I can appreciate feeling like a fish out of water since I moved from the U.S. to Spain, and even within the U.S. a few times, but I personally love adventure, and it sounds like you do, too:-) Perhaps you can find some other World Pulse sisters in Thailand on the "Community" page, if you would like to find others to chat, too? https://www.worldpulse.com/en/my-pulse/community
There is always the forum, as well:-) We're here for you!

I'm looking forward to seeing more stories from you and to hearing how your new life unfolds.
