Today I am moving out of my flat in Barcelona. Yes, it does feel good to move on to the next adventure. However, Barcelona felt like home, it still does. I guess it becomes a mental thing when you move into your first home, YOUR home, only you. The one place you are allowed to be yourself, and it is sort of hard to leave that behind. The whole thing was made a lot easier by selling most of my personal belongings for a good cause – Challenges Worldwide. Through the sales of my belongings, which I was once so attached to, I started to realise that those were really just things. Things that exchange for money, which in turn can be used for much more valuable causes. Its really quite effective! The biggest donation came from Mimi (who took over my fridge) thank you Mimi! My friend Jennifer, a wonderful person from Hong Kong, also made my day by bringing along some coffee and chocolate treats, just when I most needed it. Then, Chris and his girlfriend – the ones who adopted my sofa and who I did not know at all – brought some wine and crisps to share. We had a great time and they just made my day so happy!
When going through changes in your life (even if to others it does not seem like such a big thing at all) you realise who is there and who isn’t.
My conclusion is that moving and fundraising are a great combo, especially when accompanied by tasty wine and amazing people. Thanks everyone for your kind donations!
