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…..
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.
