On the outside looking in

“Looking from the outside in, you can never understand it. Standing on the inside looking out you can never explain it.”

As a foreigner in a new country, I sometimes feel like I am on the outside, looking in.

I love my adopted country, but at first, had feelings of not fitting in, or just not belonging.

When I arrived in the USA, I made the decision not to go back to a full time job, but instead pursue my art.

What I did not realize at first was that working from home, in a new country, would mean that I would isolate myself, and at times, it was overwhelming. This however, set me on a path of self discovery and growth that allows me the freedom to create.

Here’s to honoring our own truth, trusting that we belong wherever we are.
