INTERNeX Canada: Casual Friday- Think different

Christmas time is here! Lights, special cookies, tree decorations…red cups in Starbucks, Christmas market… definitely is here! Even if we are still in November!

Probably for the most of us will be the first Christmas time without our families and friends at home, it will be strange I am not going to deny it! But it could be a really good experience to live with our “new families” here! We arrived alone, but nobody is alone anymore. Living without your family and friends makes you more open to the new experiences and it’s easier to know more and more people. It’s usual to establish some kind of special connection with some people, like if you already known them for a  long time;they are part of your life and will be forever!

Some relations are stronger than distance and time, I am far away from home an even if I would live here for long time I’m sure than when I come back the important people in my life will be still there, like always. And the same will happen in the future with the important people you met here.

You don’t forget anyone just because the distance… and right now the borders just mean paperwork, but nothing else.  If you want something, if you love someone just change the things, nobody can say you can’t. Live your dream, don’t dream your life. Everything is possible if you firmly believe that.

And after this little reflection, it’s forbidden to think more, it’s Friday! Let’s party with our new family here!


Happy Friday!
