Things I learnt living in Israel

Trinis stop at the sea level mark on their way to the Dead Sea.  

One of the questions I’m constantly asked is “Why did you move to Israel?” Even after ten years of being here it is still the one question I receive from anyone I encounter so much so that I myself even began reflecting deeply on the reason for me choosing to live in the Holy Land – or did the Holy Land choose me? Hmmmm…..

Visiting the Wailing Wall.

As a Trinbagonian, Israel is not the first country of choice to which we choose to immigrate. However, always one to operate outside of the status quo, a decade ago I decided that I needed something different in my life. I decided to leave everything that was familiar and comfortable to me and start my life in Israel, and I can say without any hesitation that it was the greatest decision I ever made.

I’ve learned so much more about myself and others in the past few years than I ever thought possible. Some of these life lessons I choose to share with you now in the hope that after reading this you are inspired to know that in every situation you can always do better.
