I Am Excited... but Scared ^_^!

We've booked the flights for Canada. We are travelling on Friday 4th March 2011. We've printed the tickets. We are in the process of packing our bags.

We are going, we are going... OMG, this is not a dream. We are really going to fly to our new life in Canada.

I am... SCARED!

I feel like crying because we are moving to a town in Canada where the only people I know our my husband's boss and one of his work colleagues.

I am... scared, because my family in Canada live four hours plane journey.

I am scared, although the waiting game was stressful, now that is over I am thrown into full reality. This entails from now on I can't blame the Canadian Embassy for delaying a part of our life. I will be the only responsible for lazing around my career. The responsibility and hardwork to make me succeed will depend on me.

I am scared, because I feel like God has granted us a blank page on which we can re-write the chapters of our lives in the way we see fit and in the way that will make us fully happy. Yesterday I couldn't sleep, I was praying for today to come. Today is here and I am praying to be there so I know what I can do. I am daydreaming about finding us a nicely situated apartment so that we will be happy and feel at home. I am daydreaming about meet nice friends at the gym which I will sign up as soon as I am in the town. I pray to find people who share the same passion as me and to whom I can feel at home with. I've heard only good things about Canadian people and I hope I will find happy and good hearted friends.

I feel like going to Canada will open many doors to me and MrBP; however I am scared I might be too scared to enter these doors - I will try my best :). The plan is to become a Stay At Home Wife/Writer (SAHW) and then once I have a baby - without pressure - I will become a Stay At Home Wife/Writer Mummy (SAHWM). But really this last one can wait, because we are going to put into action what I wrote here ;)!

But I know that I can count on my blog-friends. I am so happy to have found you, because I know that wherever I go I will not me completely alone because I will have you all behind me. I so agree with Jenni @Story of My Life for writing "I think some people (mostly those who don’t blog) vastly underestimate the power of this particular social media. The power to forge friendships; the power to create communities; the power to reveal to us how alone we AREN’T."

Thank you everyone for encouraging me when I needed encouragement and for listening to my rants.


  1. I think this is the start of an exciting chapter fot you!!

  2. YAY!!! This is going to be a great journey and adventure for the both of you. I'm sure you'll make lots of new friends and find lots of new hobbies to busy yourself with in no time. Don't be scared of the change that is to come. Embrace it.

  3. Thanks ladies.
    @YUMMommy, you just told the right attitude to have "don't be scared of the change that is to come. Embrace it."

    I am going to Embrace it.

  4. I know you guys will do well. I can't wait to hear all about your adventures. I'm sure there will be plenty :). Just remember: the same God that worked everything out for your visa is the same One that will help you adjust to the changes :)

  5. Just sent up a prayer in your behalf. A lot of unknowns can definitely be scary, but it's also a HUGE adventure and that is exciting. Fly safe!

  6. I think that the blogging world is such a special gift from God to so many of us. It allows us a freedom to express ourselves without as much judgment and it also gives us a new outlook on things we might not have understood before. Because now - through blogs - we can see those things first hand through our friends eyes.

    Congratulations on the move! Will be praying for safety in your travels and settling in!

  7. Even though you are scared, remember that God is with you on your journey. As long as you have God and each other everything will be alright. You can do it!!!

  8. Ooooh so excited for family BP...new adventures await! Beautiful thing about life is that it God always has a plan for our lives according to his will! Being scared means you are alive and invested!

  9. So touched by your words ladies. Thank you very much :).

  10. AHHHHHH!!!! I'm so happy for you. You got the visa!!!

    Trust me, I think eventually excitement and happiness will overcome this fear of yours.

    It doesn't matter where you go, or how far, as long as you have someone (hubby) there every step of the way.

    Change is always good, it calls for new ideas, creativity and a new way of loooking at things.

    Good luck with the move!!

  11. where in Canada are you moving? maybe I can help with suggestions on places to discover, things to do, etc? i've lived in many Canadian provinces and cities... :)

  12. Praying for a safe trip and easy transition into life in Canada for you and the hubby!


Yes, I L*O*V*E them and look forward to receive great advice and encouragement. Let me know you are here, just write hi :)
