"it just takes one person, you know. Just one person to make you feel like you belong" (quote from the movie the giant mechanical man)
This past week Waldi and I took a trip to Berlin with some friends. We had such a great time, and I feel like it was a real turning point for me. I am starting to feel like I belong here. I have friends, work, favorite cafes... I have new volunteer opportunities and creative outlets. Yes, sometimes I still miss what I left behind. But the truth is, things here in Marburg are good. I feel at home.
Some of it is thanks to patience and stepping out of my comfort zone. But a lot of it is thanks to Waldi. He helps me see the good in things, encourages me to live out my values and makes me feel like I belong.
Everyday I am thankful for that.
(PS if you haven't seen this movie, you really should! it's worth it just for this hat...)
