Hello and welcome to Time for Changes!

Here you can find reflections on leaving a nice corporate career behind and dedicating yourself to the family by becoming a wife and mother. Furthermore, you can follow the life changes in the pursuit for another passion: helping others through Coaching and Pilates. Finally, all of this is happening while living in a different country, culture and language – it has definitely been a fun adventure and it’s great to be able to share these changes with you.

The baby section has articles displayed in chronological order but otherwise feel free to navigate randomly through the different posts. They are spontaneous bursts of reflections and reactions along the journey, as different things were happening.

Thank you for being a part of this project, may you find it engaging and enjoyable.

Sometimes, it’s time for a career move. Sometimes, it’s time for more.

Here will be the place and time to share that move. Maybe it will move you too.
