The Change Diaries Podcast explores how to better embrace change, spark change or simply be the change we want to see.

Moving Your Life is the focus of this new series of the Change Diaries podcast as we explore Changing your location – the ups and downs. Experts say that moving ranks as one of life’s biggest stressors, right up there with death and divorce. In this series I’ll speak with some experts to lead us through the ins and outs of managing a move and I’ll get personal, diving into how a family (my family) has experienced moving, including international relocation.

Kicking off the season is my teenage daughter Lauren. She was born in Florida, spent the first two years of her life in Jamaica before we made the permanent move to the US. Then we headed to London, UK, where she started high school. Now we are in Toronto, Canada. What’s that journey been like? What has she learnt along the way? And what’s her best advice for teens going through a move? Whether you are moving or not, if you have a teen in your life this is a must listen! Tune in and leave a comment after the show.

  1. Dear Arlene,

    Very impressive conversation. Lauren sounds very mature. She does have a very interesting story to share. She has a “book” inside of her.

    Please encourage her to write.

    Wishing you all the best🤗❣

  2. What a delightful conversation with your articulate and clearly self aware daughter Arlene. The first and only time that I met Lauren she was being pushed by you in a pram and to hear this confident young woman deconstruct her feelings about her experiences was pure joy. I could not leave the conversation and I cannot want to hear more of her thoughts on other topics. Kudos to you and your husband for raising this young woman who has obviously been given the tools and latitude to process her thoughts and emotions. Brilliant!!

    1. Indeed you met her in a pram :-). It’s hard to believe how the time has flown. Thank you so much for listening and for the kind words which I will most definitely share with her. Blessings!


  3. Very impressive. You’re both very talented and I’m glad that you’ve chosen to share that amazing conversation. Good luck to you and all your endeavors.
