Baby steps are paying off, but more baby steps along the way. I can’t tell you how excited I am about finally having an office of my own. I have been going to school for so long to be here, and finally be able to do what I love.

I love to help people, listen to their stories, figure out things together to make it better, and be there to comfort them. Of course I need these things myself, and I have wonderful friends around me to cheer me on. I feel bless to be here and to do what I do. I am excited for my children to be able to live in such a beautiful nature and wonderful friends.

The heart of me feels torn lately because I have living 2 cultures inside of me that I can’t pick one to be more than the other. I have friends from both country and I love them both, and have deep connection with both. I feel at home in both land and language. My initial goal was to bridge both culture and country, but lately wondering how am I gonna do that?

I guess I just have to keep going and the answer will show up itself, and take shapes and forms as needed. The best thing is that I know who I am, and I know my mission.

Well, I feel settled in now here in North California, I am excited to be more involved with my children’s school, and be part of the community. Thank you for such a warm welcome and we are so excited to be part of it all.
