Until I was 21,
I not only moved every ~2 years locally,
but also every ~5 years internationally.
To a child,
moving can bring great grief into their lives,
leaving behind many emotional scars.
But I’m ultimately grateful for the pain.
They helped me mature and innovate my “self.”
I don’t know many people in Chicago.
I have nothing planned,
nor do I have business lined up locally.
All I have is an intuition,
That this is where I’m meant to be now.
Am I being impulsive?
Yet intuition is what’s guided me on my journey of 41 years.
A journey of maturing and innovating with others.
A journey of empathy.
It’s served me well so far.
I trust it.
