Moving ahead

A few days ago I was having breakfast with a good friend of mine.

In our chats we love to take time to do some philosophy on our life as immigrants in Canada. We discuss how things are going, the lessons we learned or how we think we should face the future among other things.

That day we agreed on the fact that we are about to leave our “newcomer” status. Having bought a house (he moved to his new place in Aylmer a few days ago) is the very sign of getting established.

In this past 4 years we went from having almost nothing to have kids, a well paid job in our domains, a car or may be two and a house. Only in 4 years.

Yes, Canada made it possible, is a country with good conditions to succeed. But we pushed it hard and sacrificed many things to get it where we are.

So now it’s a good moment to relax, enjoy ourselves and move on to the next stage. God only knows what’s ahead for us… But it cannot be bad.
