I live a very busy life. I work non stop & I have been doing this for years. In different contexts, scenarios and set ups. All over the world. This is of course a life many dream off. And I do want to acknowledge that I love my life. That I am grateful for every second! But the biggest price in my opinion people like myself pay is that the loneliness which comes with this kind of existence can be really hard. Not having a lot of friends close by, having close friends far away. (In my case literally on the other side of the world) It’s something that I’ve really struggled with this year. Feeling lonely. I have the absolute privilege to run a business with my best friend & best person in this world who I share this incredible (and crazy) life with on a daily basis. Plus I am loved & supported by the two sweetest men a girl can ever wish for (I love you Miguel, I love you Sparky) but that doesn’t mean that this life of always working, always striving, while changing countries isn’t affecting me on a deep emotional level. It really does.
Like Britney sings I too feel my loneliness is killing me. At times. So for me making connections with people who just become family in an instant is super precious & super special. It’s something I cherish so deeply. This week I’ve learned that people can feel incredibly close even though they might not live close by. You can not live in the same country but feel a bond like you’re family with some people. I feel so lucky, so privileged with people like that in my life. From the bottom of my heart Robin, Cecile and sweet sweet Patate thank you for being in my life! Your warm, open hearts, your incredible hospitality & your ultimate sweetness is so inspiring & refreshing! A week with you has taken away so much of the loneliness I’ve felt all year. I’m so grateful for the connection we’ve made & we must be together again soon! I truly hope we will. Miriam! Sister. So nice to meet you. Connect with you, I know we’ve started something special together.
We are family…..
I got all my sisters (and brother) with me!
