Since I moved to Canada, my life has been really challenging and crazy and I've had moments where I felt like giving up. I fell in love with a man who I wanted to share the rest of my life with. Little did I know back then, that this marriage was not meant to be a lifetime commitment. Life taught me about staying true to myself, allowing me to feel deep pain, accepting it with gratitude, and eventually letting it go.
Slowly, I set out on a journey to find myself again, but what I discovered was just the opposite. The closer I get to myself, the less I know who I am. It feels like dying and being reborn at the same time. As I expand myself, I discover new parts of myself and let go of old ones that no longer serve me.
I moved from east to west (Quebec, Ontario, Alberta, British Columbia) - I have seen a lot of Canada. At the moment, I would describe myself as a kind of nomad. This year has been one of the craziest years I've ever experienced. It has been very rich, adventurous, scary, depressing, sad, exciting, diverse, breathtaking, beautiful, and life-changing. I am breaking old patterns and challenging myself by developing new ways of thinking and feeling about how to live life.
My life has changed completely - I am very grateful for all these opportunities for growth. Somewhere deep inside me, there is still that little naive girl who grew up so safe and loved in the countryside of Austria. I will keep this part, this part is the secret piece that will always remind me of where I started my life journey.
Life has been challenging since I moved to Canada, but for some reason, I knew I had to keep doing what I believe in. I learned what it really meant to surrender and trust, not knowing where life was going to take me.... but one thing I've been sure of all my life is that I want to help people, and that fulfills me deeply.
