I am unexpectedly homesick. I say unexpectedly because I think I should get used to it.
A while ago I celebrated 25 years since I came with a backpack to Amsterdam with 50 guilders in my pocket.
It is the best thing I ever did but I also felt a broken heart for a long time.
Today I saw a new picture on the photo frame, my beloved put another image in the frame.
I stood there, looking at my grandparents and cried.
I Intensely appreciate the luck I had to travel to Amsterdam when I did, and build the life that I did.
I Intensely appreciate the fact that I met the love of my life and built a lovely home with him all these years.
I Intensely appreciate the place I was born, its beauty and the community that came with it.
I Intensely appreciate the fact that it is still there. Even though I felt homeless most of the time, I had a great childhood with my tribe and my extended family in the home my grandparents built.
That, I appreciate every day of my life.
What can I intensely appreciate today?
Home – past and present
What do I need to Intensely Accept about today?
I have to accept that I feel physically exhausted.
Was I intensely honest about who I am and was I loyal to myself?
I am honest about who I am but I have to admit that my beloved is right. He is wise and knows me more than anybody. He shows me that the challenge I gave myself is pushing me to move to the next stage. Work in a new way, trust and follow the structure I built, as I know it fits me.
So if I am honest, Showing myself to the world the next 108 days and publishing all of the projects and milestones is very very scary.
Very very scary, but I do it because I want to expand my life. Do you?
What am I intensely creating?
My life, my home, my marriage, my family.
Q for you:
What do you appreciate the most about the home you come from?
