Moving Countries While Away
Simultaneously holding grief, joy & gratitude in my heart as I transition into my new life!
I've been deep in all the contradictions lately. Trying to hold space for all of it.
My bestie @unicely (1st photo) who I was supposed to be vacationing with in Egypt left me a few days ago & now I'm living in Egypt!
Eunice is my most solid homegirl. My person. My childhood friend from LA. My ride or die. We started off in the underground music & hip hop scene in LA together & now we've been around the world together.
When she left, my bond to LA left & it really started to hit home (pun intended) that this is my new home!
I came here with one bag y'all! I moved countries with 1 freaking bag (3rd photo). 1 bag!
This move was so unexpected that my amazing parents & siblings moved out of my house in Glendale for me this weekend!
The house where my kids grew up in was graciously moved out by family, I didn't even get to say a proper goodbye except through video phone-- see 2nd photo with my beautiful sister @lamyaasassi chatting with me as she closed up my house.
I am all the feels right now. So much sadness and grief for the life I once had & have to let go of so unexpectedly and from so far away. But also so much joy, excitement & gratitude because .... wait for it.... we bought a house! (4th photo)
Wtf is happening you guys?! So much! And its all so perfect, so difficult & so easy all at the same time.
I am in flow. I am letting it all come in-- the discomfort, the grief, the unfolding, the trust & the joy.
I am following the path of ease. I am stepping into my destiny.
And as I walk the path of trust & of the unknown, I am being initiated. See next post.
