In the past 2 years of my life, I have taken on some big challenges. I am not always eager and comfortable doing them, but have done them nevertheless. I’ve moved to a new country and on a weekly basis I put myself in new and (literally) foreign situations. I made this move a year and a half ago as my family and I temporarily relocated to Germany for my husband’s work. I’ll admit, even blog writing intimidates me! I have sat in front of my computer and started many blog entries. But, as you see, this is the first one that you are reading. That is because I was scared of writing my first blog. One day as I was doing something new (which happens quite often for me in Germany), I realized that I just have to ‘do it afraid’. Of course!! That is what I must write about.
