Some mums and I have been joking a lot over the last couple of weeks about our “fabulous life”… there is a misconception in others that we lead this amazing life, lunching and meeting for coffee and not much else.
The truth… is that our day to day reality is far from fabulous and amazing! Especially at the moment in Taipei, we are literally dripping with sweat and simultaneously getting drenched with rain at almost every school pick up! We usually laugh “there’s a good reason why we are doing this to ourselves!?!”.
Laying in bed this morning I came across this article, and I wanted to share it. “A recent study found that people who relocate to a new country have a better sense of self than those who don’t.”
So there is a valid (research based) reason to make the move offshore – its not just good experience, its not just cultural awareness, its not just the opportunities that living abroad creates. It’s for greater overall life satisfaction!
