Time is seriously going too fast.
I came to the sudden realisation today that it’s now less than three weeks until I move to Sweden. Whilst most of the blog to date has been a light hearted attempt at humour the sudden realisation of change is to me a serious one.
It’s not a sensation of fear as I am a person that thrives on the unknown, I love a challenge and I love a risk. No it’s more a fear of change. The realisation that every single aspect of my life will be different is something that will take a lot of adjusting. Language, law, society, social, food, economical and even the psychological structure of Sweden is far different from where I am used to.
I’m jumping head first into this one and it’s something I have never done before in mu life. But there is no going back now, I cannot change it and I don’t want to change it. Yet there is always the knowledge that if it all does go wrong then I can easily just return to the UK with a tail between my legs to start life again. But that is something that I do not want to do.
After spending a considerable amount of time reading this website from blogs to discussions it appears that the majority of people have struggled with moving to Sweden and that the main two reasons seem to fall into financial and social adjustments. I guess I am quite lucky in that I have a job that I will be carrying with me but that does not say that it will all be a bed of roses. In this day and age nobody can predict too far into the future.
Were still in an economic mess and it’s not going to end overnight but I do feel with enough planning, incorporating a sensible life strategy will really work in order to make the transition of moving to Sweden possible. Things will change and I need to ensure I do it all ahead rather than be surprised with anything that comes out of the blue.
So it’s just under three weeks now. Three more weekends, three more mundane Monday’s. No going back now.
