After few days in Bristol, I feel like I really want to move there now. People are very direct and friendly – lean into each conversation, no matter how mundane. I really miss that type of openness and inclusiveness in our little town. I am also noticing that after just a few days surrounded by street art, music, varied architecture and a great mixture of people I start to plot new creative project. We have decided to move to Bristol within the next 12 months and I quietly hope it will happen sooner than later so that I can continue studies but also live a happier life. It’s not just something I wish for myself and my family but I think it’s important for my self-care as a therapist. Choosing the place where we thrive mentally and socially seems obvious to me now.
