Lizzie983's Journal, 30 June 2013

I realized I have lost focus, even more after having been to Italy.
I see myself eating pasta more often, white bread. I even bought dark chocolate spread, a nutella like thinghy, that I usually forbid myself to buy.
From the emotions point of view it has been rough this week.
My last two days at my old workplace, while running around to different offices in order to have all the documents to start my new job.
I thought about how different was my life when I came here to Germany, which expectations I had, concerning my life and my career.
In the meanwhile, the carrer I always dreamt of is gone. My mother died. My wedding failed. All together and at the same time.
Well, I am still here, I am happier and stronger than before these events.
I like the country I am living in, Germany, even if sometimes I miss my family in Italy.
I like my life, my new strenght, i learnt to enjoy life, to realize I am a happy and luchy person.
I also like my new career, even if it was not my childhood dream, even if I am few years older than my peers.
I like living with my new partner. I like this little flat, I like the friendships and relationships I have been able to build within one only year of living downtown.
I am proud of myself, I made it through all those painful events, in a foreign country.
I am way stronger than I felt.
I am ready for this big change in life, having a new career, a life with is totally different from how it used to be 3 years ago, and way different compared to what I wished/hoped/planned. And it's way better that that! :)
Life can be so much surprising :)

You are strong! But I have a question! Is everyone fat in Italy? I just wonder how they can eat such rich food and stay healthy? Hmmm...

Thanks Lizzy! Portions in Italy are way smaller than in Germany or the US. And being thin is a kind of "higher social status", so people really take care of that. People eat rich food when they see family or friends, then, on a daily basis, they eat light and small meals. (Italian breakfast is only a tiny cup of espresso and a few cookies, lunch is usually a sandwich, dinner a dish of pasta and/or some meat).
