Open letter to my newly expatriated self | oregon girl around the world
What I know you will do is prioritize your family’s assimilation. And you should. That is what you do. And you do it well. You planned, researched and coordinated. I know you. But remember - and here is where I also know you will need a reminder or two - that your family will not fully feel that their world is on point until their captain is confidently at the helm. That is you. You must prioritize yourself in all of this. Easier said than done, I will tell you. Easier said than done you are telling me. I hear you. I heard you. I was you. But you will quickly see that YOU are the center of this equation. And sometimes it may feel like your ship is listing in a dense fog, but don’t worry. It is still stable and on course. It will right itself sure enough.
