What is the hardest thing you’ve ever done?
After giving this one lots of thoughts, I have to say it would be leaving the family I was with for about two months as an Au-Pair in Germany, after both parents had tried to commit suicide. I was 20 years old and wanted to improve my German to a fluent level.
In this short time, lots happened. In the end, I had to abruptly leave two young children aged 4 and 2 in the hands of their grandparents and take the train home back to France.
The ride back is a blur. I remember crying a lot and feeling guilty. I never forgot the events that led to this harsh decision.
I know I will write about this one day.
At what age did you become an adult?
Hmmmm, another tough one! It would have to be when I went to university on a bursary fund, I must have been 18 years old. The allotted money always came late. I did not want to let my family know I did not have enough. Amongst other things, I learned that dry breakfast cereals are a student’s best meal any time of the day.
I came to realize I would be alright on my own. Oftentimes challenges make you stronger right? 😉
If you could experience on moment in your life again, what would it be? brought to you by Ewhyard.
I would come back to my last visit with my mom. She was in the hospital and kept talking about people and places I had not heard before. I could feel her mind was someplace else. If I could find myself there once more, I’d listen intently.
She was telling the story of her childhood. I would give anything to get to know it now. Few of us know of their Mothers’ stories. I wish it was not the case.
This is the last day of NaNoPoblano2020. I have made new friends I hope to continue seeing them in the blogosphere, maybe not daily but somewhat regularly still.
I will be blogging three to four times a week since writing keeps the voices in my head still. I love it.
