Sweden vs. France

Sweden or France? Or both of them?

When I was at my moms in Sweden she tried to convince me (as always) to move back to Sweden. And now when my dad is here for a couple of days he has tried to do the same. I do understand them, life is much better and easier in all kind of aspects in Sweden. I wouldn’t have any problem finding a great and well paid job AND I also have my own apartment, right in the middle of Stockholm…. Maybe I will do that later, in the future when I’m ready to settle down. But for now I’m still hungry for challenges and as my dad says, that I always look for complicated things. And that’s right and I think that’s what scared me in Sweden, I had everything at the age of 27…I was just not ready for that kind of life. I want to explore…meet challenges and living on the edge, a little bit more ;-) And Paris is the perfect city for that, believe me ;-)

    I believe you.
    Efter några intensiva veckor på svensk mark har jag nu börjat landa i vardagen igen. Det är skrämmande hur snabbt man kommer in i gamla vanor och tankebanor igen. This life isn’t meant for me! Det är inte det här jag vill, inte nu! Dock är det svårt att ta steget och bryta upp ännu en gång. Vi söker alla olika saker i livet och det är svårt för dem som inte har samma ambitioner som en själv, att förstå ens längtan och behov…

    Kram

    Sverige finns kvar och du kan flytta tillbaks nar du sa onskar. Klart du ska vara i Paris. Lara dig nya saker varje dag, upptacka en ny stad, lara kanna massa nya manniskor och fa kampa for det du verkligen vill. Det blir liksom inte sa mycket aventyr i Sverige…
    Vi pratar om att flytta tillbaks en dag. Sverige ar ju trots allt oslagbart nar det galler familjeliv. Det enda som lockar for mig ar ett stort hos. Resten kanns bara trist… Men vi far se vad det blir i framtiden.

    Stor kram

    Your sweet parents heart you, but sometimes our best decisions, the ones that we never regret, come from listening to ourselves.
