Thank you dear L. for reaching out to me with your question. I understand you are 25 years old and back to college. You feel overwhelmed and discouraged. I am here to help and share my experience. I went back to college at 33 years old. Like you, I had to let go of my ex, who stayed in my mind for so long. Like you, I felt tired and discouraged. I have three excellent tips for you in this video. Lots of love, Claire

Why did I decide to jump into the unknown (twice)?

Jumping into the unknown

It is this little store on a tiny Cabo Verde island, lost in the immensity of the Atlantic ocean, who left his Belgium and its bad weather. It is this Englishman who decided to trade living in one of the most industrialised cities of the United Kingdom for giving fishing lessons to the tourists of Cabo Verde. It is this man from Denmark, who married a woman on Sal Island and opened a fish spa (do you know these tiny little fishes who happily eat the dead cells on our feet?).

Lastly, it is me who quit a prestigious law firm to serve you my friend, my sister. After all, this is my second jump into the unknown. The first one happened many years ago, when I was working in a comfortable yet sad job. However, I left it to finish my degree, after a gap of ten years. For four years, I worked day and night to finally get a lawyer degree.

Jumping into the unknown, with intelligence and preparation, brings many gifts; the first one being self confidence.
