It was exactly 10 years ago to the day that I finalized the second biggest change in my life and the biggest change yet of my own volition.
On March 19th, 2010 I boarded a Poland-bound plane with a one-way ticket in hand ready for change, landing in Wrocław a full day later on the 20th of March. I call it the second biggest change as the first would have been sixteen years earlier when my family immigrated from Poland to the United States, a move that started the process, to begin with.
Going back through the last decade of my life would have taken too long for this post. This blog was a good diary for the most part until about a year ago or so when I stopped posting. I found that the novelty of moving from L.A. to Poland wore off after about four or five years. New things stopped being new and my original comparisons between Poland and the U.S. stopped making sense as I was ever more removed from Los Angeles. I thought that I could keep this blog open by writing about new and ongoing activities in my life but that proved to be too difficult for some reason. It would take time, inspiration, and vision to create new posts, neither of which I could muster as of late.
On the personal front, I am happily married with some sort of a plan for the near future.
On the professional front, I am discovering new frontiers within Project Management which I believe will serve as a solid base moving forward.
The past 10 years have been quite a ride. There are a few people that made it memorable, some I’ve lost touch with years ago (intentionally or otherwise), and some inspire me to this day. All made the past decade one for the books.
I’d love to wrap this post up with something like “Here’s to the next 10 years!” but I can’t. Change is the one constant in life and we are certainly witnessing plenty of change today as countries all over the globe are shutting down to combat the spread of the COVID-19 virus. We’ll come out victorious on the other side of this, of that I’m sure.
In the meantime stay home, be safe, avoid public spaces, and wait. I just hope it’s not the next 10 years of this…
