I know I haven’t been posting much recently and I apologize for that. My life just moved in a quite unexpected direction, so to speak. Let me tell you what happened.

At the end of July, I quit my job in Spain and came back home with a plan. I was to get a US visa and cross the pond to re-unite with a friend of mine who happens to be a farrier. The idea was to spend a month or two helping her and figure out in the mean time whether that is a job for me or not. To my surprise, the US embassy took the decision for me, denying the visa and ruining entirely my plans.

As you may suspect, there was no back-up plan. Nothing.

I shed a couple of tears, but surprisingly enough, I didn’t succumb to grief.

If the Universe has another mission for me, so be it. God bless America. It will have to manage on its own.

I accepted the outcome and moved on, yet selling my soul for a corporate job still wasn’t an option. Once I had some rest, I began to look for another equestrian job opportunity in the English-speaking world. I sent a ton of resumés to many stables in the UK, even though none of the places seemed to be convincing…


After a month of applying for jobs that didn’t seem attractive at all, I came across an ad posted by someone who needed a volunteer to work in exchange for dressage classes only 40km away from where I live. So having nothing better to do at the moment, I packed my backpack and embarked on a journey with no return.

Every exit is but an entrance to somewhere else. For some reason, I ended up in a place where I can do some good and be happy. After only a couple of days, I was already quite sure that England could do without me. God save the Queen. I’d rather stay with my new friend.


I don’t believe in coincidences.

Things happen for a reason. Thanks to that grumpy US consul who denied me that damn visa, I found happiness much closer to home I’ve ever imagined. I met someone who made me a better version of myself. Someone I deeply care for.

People do not cross our paths by mere accident, you know. They come into our lives to teach us a lesson, inspire us, or help us grow and become better people.

I needed a job with horses and kind humans, and a place worth staying.

She needed someone to heal her and give her unconditional acceptance.

And the Universe provided both.

We are soul mates meant to awaken each other.

INFP. A sensitive, yet adventurous soul on a never-ending quest for the meaning of life and the reasons behind human behavior. Sometimes, a I'm frolicking unicorn pooping rainbows. On other occasions, I can be as deep as the Mariana Trench. After some psychotherapy and medication, I am seeing my depression as a source of positive changes and self growth. If I could choose any superpower I wanted, it would be healing.
