Living the Moment
Apologies, I’ve been a little silent and slow on the blogging front and trying to live the moment, learning better mindfulness and awareness as I make sense of living in strange and wonderful Macau, while leaving my career in Hong Kong behind to join the ranks of trailing spouses to become “wife of a chef” which in itself is challenging and special. There’s even a whole support network called Married to a chef.
I’ve done “expat” life – I have never used this term living and working abroad the last 10 years, but I guess that’s what it’s called and the term everyone loosely throws around in our social circle. I wonder what interesting things a trailing spouse life is going to entail.
The greatest benefit is having alot of your own time – even if I work alot of it – how could I ever stop working? It gives me pleasure and keeps me stimulated, but I think the tricky and difficult part is finding the perfect balance between solitude and having precious time to connect and re-connect as a couple.
Anyhow, lots of backdated entries from our last Marrakech wonderful holiday in January to another recent trip to Shanghai with lots of new discoveries. Stay tuned!awareness, life, Macau, mindfulness, quotes
