Finding your place…

… is not about geography.

I’ve lived in three foreign countries in the last three years. Whenever I tell someone this, I inevitably get the question: So which one do you like most? This is when I find myself struggling to answer. Not because it’s a hard choice, but because I find it difficult to separate a space I’ve lived in from the experiences and the people I’ve shared it with… from the person I was when I called that place my second home.

I don’t have an argument that makes Germany better that other countries, apart from the fact that I like the person I am now. I am happy with the choices and the road that got me here.

When you look for the right place for you, don’t choose by looking for it on a map. Look for a place that allows you to live by your values and to do at least most of the things you like, if not all. Whether it’s your job, your hobbies or the people around you, look for the place that allows you to grow and to be content with your day-to-day life. That is the right place for you, and the geographical coordinates have nothing to do with it.

“If you don’t like where you are, change it. You’re not a tree.” – Jim Rohn.
