Something we’ve all been talked about to at some stage or another whether you were a child with a poor attitude according to your parents, teachers, friends for even as an adult with the same kind of reference.
Deciding to immigrate is probably one of the most exciting, terrifying, stressful, massive planning, expensive and craziest thing to go through with many factors that will make the move either a fabulous experience or something that can cause people physical illness.
Personally I have swung from the two extremes many times and to say that one does not go through an emotional roller coaster as some part of the journey is an understatement! I have in fact made a move to a new country twice both at very different times in my life and yet both times also had its ups and downs and was both extremely exhilarating and at other times extremely challenging but for me and for what I have experienced speaking to those in this boat, it all boils down to ATTITUDE! No matter what you are faced in life, one does not always have a choice with what one goes through but always have a choice how to react to it. Sometimes we get this right and other times we get it VERY wrong! The idea is to constantly take responsibility for how we react.
So what ever your reasons are to immigrate, and what ever your adventures or challenges are, embrace the right attitude! What attitude am I talking of? An attitude of gratitude, no matter how dark the days may appear (especially in winter lol) and an attitude of giving up is never an option. Embrace every new challenge, culture and other ways of doing things. Sometimes talking less and listening more can in fact bring about a better way of understanding and accomplishing things. Let go of the things that are perhaps beneath you and embrace the learning, but in the same sense, don’t loose your values, standards and morals during the process. Stand against the injustices, make your mark, made a difference each day, albeit its just to smile at a stranger.
Have FUN! Walk! Discover new ways to get home! LAUGH! Blow bubbles! YEs like when you were kids, in fact buy a bubble machine and let it blow on auto! LOVE! Love your family, Love yourself, Love God and Love those around you! Let go of the hurt, the what ifs, the anger and any emotion that can cause your heart to Harden and then breathe 😉
