Always remember that there is only one important time in life: Today, Here and Now!
It is late in the night that I am writing this post. Since from my last posts, I wrote several posts which I didn’t publish. as the quote above says, I should begin today, here and now.
First of all, I want to answer a couple of question I received for my previous posts.
One of them was why I wrote about my ideas and life. My answer is simple. I enjoy talking and writing is a way to talk and explain my ideas to the universe. You never know how and whom it resonates. It is also possible that some others may have similar experience and we may exchange ideas and learn from each other. Therefore I appreciate when people read my posts and give feedback. You can write your questions or answer private or anonymous, you are welcome.
Another one was whether I have a concern about my privacy. My answer is direct. I am not feeling insecure and unsafe about my life and my experience. I hope my journey and experience can inspire some others and help them in their journey to achieve their goals. I also believe as long as I share my ideas and feelings I can meet new people who share a similar mindset or have opposite ideas where we can enrich our lives by exchanging collective intelligence and expanding our perspective by adding new ones which we can not see alone.
It was almost a year ago I wrote my last post. Since then I moved to Friedrichshafen near Lake Constance and have a new job here. I am very happy with my new location, new house, new office and new colleagues.
Like every new beginning, I had difficulty to organize everything, moving my house, settling down and arranging registration and school things. It was my first time to move to another location in Germany. When I first came to Germany, I rented a flat and bought everything slowly one by one. I just brought 4 pieces of luggage from Turkey and that was it at all. This time moving a complete house and organizing transport and everything else alone was very hard for me emotionally. Although I received much help from my friends for packing, unpacking, moving and settling down, it was still very challenging emotionally. I am very grateful to my friends who supported me during this time frame. I wouldn’t do this without their help.
It took 1,5 month to finish everything and I was happy when I saw that I did it. But I have to confess that I don’t want to move again to another place unless it is life matter. I won’t be able to do it alone. I want to stay here as long as possible and till my kids finish their primary and elementary school. It is important that they have the same environment in their first school years and feel safe.
I am happy that this transition period past and I can enjoy my time here. Lake Constance (Bodensee) has a special meaning for me. When I came to Germany for the first time, I used to come here every month. It reminds me where I lived in Turkey. It was a small town called Silivri and my house was 1km away from the see. I used to go for 2 hours walking 3 -4 times a week at 5:30 am and swam in the see after the walk. It felt so fresh and great. In Germany, unfortunately, it not so possible to live close to see and go to the beach in the morning for a walk. Here once again I have an opportunity to live this again. The lake reminds me Marmara see and gives me the feeling of peace of mind, mindfulness and calmness. I can go to the beach every lunchtime and enjoy the beauty of the lake, its blueness, peace and all the emotions it gives me.
Since I am new in this region, I have just a few friends to talk and to share. That’s one of the reasons why I am writing. I have so many ideas, theories and observations to share and I think this is the only way at the moment to live and share them. My friends told me several times to write down my suggestions that I offered them which they had a positive impact on their life.
I would like to share real stories from my life from my family’ and friends’ life here about life, love, work and everything important to me. Maybe some of them touch you as well.
For today it is all now. Have a beautiful day ahead!
