Everyone in my circle kept telling me to move here and I knew in my soul that it had been my destiny my whole life. But…
New Year’s Eve 2022 into 2023, I was staring at the Eiffel Tower and said to myself, “I have never been able to give my life in the US a real shot because I was always dealing with major obstacles. I have an amazing career and friends there, and there is nothing holding me back now from enjoying the life I created.”
I got back to NYC Jan 2023. When I walked into my apartment and saw my whiteboard with crazy amounts of positive pick me ups, I thought, “Wow, I didn’t realize how much I was struggling here.”
As the months passed, I found myself getting sicker again. I was crying often, sorting through my feelings and coming to terms with leaving 15 years of hard work and everything I had created in the US. And… the hit the fan.
The universe always gives us clues when it’s time to move on.
I got a flu that turned into bronchitis … 3 months of that was followed by 7 people in my life dying, the cockroach infestation in my home due to the guy below me, 2 floods and live wires. It was nuts.
I finally surrendered and by mid-May, I had made my final decision and flew off the Paris for 6 weeks to research and plan.
I got back in July, started French immigration and donating the majority of my possessions. I also started making massive changes in my career (which you will start seeing soon).
I moved here Oct 31st and while French bureaucracy is truly ridiculous, I am making my way through it and at peace. And once again super healthy and free.
When I reflect back on all this, I am SO grateful for my 15 years in the US. It was a necessary detour and the most important piece that brought me to my destiny. I have met some of the most remarkable humans and had opportunities that have been truly mind blowing.
And the great news is that while I now live in Paris, I can continue to fly back to see friends and clients.
BIG lessons… trust that signs and that everything unfolds as it needs to. And if something is meant for you, you will know in your soul when it’s time (and the
will hit the fan to tell you too).
