The second season of The Change Diaries podcast explores the ups and downs of changing locations. This short episode is a personal mini dive into conversation with my husband, Nimal Amitirigala, to get his perspective on what it’s been like to move countries as a family.
We share the background to our decision to leave Jamaica, how we have fared along the way and what we want most out of our experience. Whether you are contemplating a change of location or not, I hope you’ll learn something new.
As we close this season about the ups and downs of changing locations, what I’ve learned from my amazing guests is that relocating is about your mindset and making the most of where you are. You get better at learning what to hold on to and what to let go of. You build resilience and draw closer to family. You realise that the one thing you take everywhere you go is yourself, so you’d better start by working on you. And you figure out that it’s pointless to look back at things with regret, it’s more important to embrace all the lessons and celebrate your growth.
Look out for the start of season three coming soon.
Nimal is a senior executive with a publicly traded food and financial services conglomerate headquartered in Jamaica and he is based in Canada. He has lived and worked in four countries: Jamaica, the USA, the UK and Canada in his 25-year career. His proudest accomplishment is his 18-year marriage to the love of his life Arlene and their two amazing offspring Lauren and Aris.
