A couple of years ago, my mom gave me a special Christmas gift: my childhood diary.
I immediately went back to those long summer days, secret love messages and big dreams. And a page with a very clear message caught my attention:
“Sundays are too boring. From now on, I will take my bike, ride to China and disappear”.
Well, big dreams may come true.
Shortly after turning 34, I was offered a job and moved to China to live one of the most intense and fulfilling periods of my life.
Once more, I proved myself that daring, despite the fear and uncertainty I felt, was worth it.
And no, my family is not a family of travellers, expats nor diplomats.
And no, my budget was not unlimited.
I persisted in following my purpose, kept getting closer to what made me happy, gathered a bunch of resources and willingness to take risks.
And took risks.
