Another couple of months have passed since we last wrote. Sometimes texts just come to us and sometimes it takes a bit longer before what shall be written can be verbalized. Our goal never was to write blog posts on a regular basis, but to share experiences and insights that we believe are worth sharing and that hopefully can contribute to others. We also experience challenges and bumps in the road and sometimes it takes time to reflect on them and learn before we can share.
So to recap. October was spent in Portugal where we surfed and worked out as usually. Back in Sweden I spent November traveling between the island of Gotland where we live seven months of the year and mainland Sweden where I was working. It was quite intense and in the middle of that period I was hit by another car, my car was totally destroyed, my son and I were ok, but it created a big mess that I am currently sorting out the last details of. More than once during the last couple of months I have asked myself what was right about me and my son being in that car crash… Well, at least I learned a lot about insurances and how the whole system around that functions.
In December we moved back to Switzerland for the season. This year we came here a bit earlier than usually since our son Walter was starting school for the first time (in Switzerland kids start school at four) and we wanted to give him a smoother start since he was going to jump in mid-term. He settled in extremely well and seemed to remember enough French to enjoy himself from the first day. On his third day of school he actually went to his first birthday party and was more than happy to enjoy all the sweets… He is such a cool being; he just tags along sharing his amazing energy with us and everyone he meets. Some people say ”Oh, how is he ever gonna have any friends when he moves around all the time?”. And ”What about school in Sweden? That will be the end of you guys living like this!”. I sometimes let myself get caught up in those arguments and it lasts until I remember that I am the creator source of everything in my life and the thing that Anders is living proof of; if there is a will, there is a way. And so far we have always found a way to create our life the way we desire to live it.
