Guess who just got a one way ticket out of Limbo… This girl!
Following a previous blog that I posted last week, I mentioned that I was waiting on some news and I would share it with you when the time is right. Now is that time. And my news..? I am officially accepted as a Swedish resident!
It has taken a year of waiting, stress, anxiety and the fear of the unknown, but I finally got an answer and it was yes. This news is the best I could ask for and I am completely overwhelmed and pleased that I took that step into the unknown and made it out the other side. I faced my fears and it paid off!
Having residency means that I can now officially begin my life in Sweden. It was a tough year, a long wait and a real struggle. Worth it? Most definitely!
The first hurdle has opened up a world that I was once on the outside of. I have never really felt like I belonged anywhere and finally I feel welcome.
I found out the news yesterday evening, during a live stream of all things. It was very emotional and as much as I tried to conceal my emotions, they all came flooding out. It was a wonderful moment that was shared with more people than I expected.
I thought I would share the moment with you as you have been on this journey with me as much as anybody else.
I want to say a huge thank you to you all for your continued support since I began this blog. Being part of the WordPress community has helped me grow immensely as a person.
Most of all, I want to thank Stefan. Without him, I honestly do not know where I would be at this very moment. I would never have been able to to make it this far without him. He has been so kind, loving and supportive since the day I met him and I am lucky to have him in my life. He changed my world and for that I will always be grateful.
I hope now, between the poetry I spill, I will be able to bring you updates of progress from this day forward.
I never thought I would see this much positive change in my life but I never gave up, even when I wanted to. If you find yourself living a life that causes you anything but happiness, just know that great things can happen. Believe that you deserve it, believe that you can make it and believe in yourself.
Until next time, The journey begins now.
