Making the Decision
All of my writing in this blog up until now has focused on what has happened in my move to Jamaica AFTER I made the decision to come home.
However, I am slowly realizing that it might be helpful to share some of what I haven't shared, about the process of deciding to come home.
There actually was a moment when I had resigned myself to living in New Jersey... a deep, dark time that I thought about staying in what some called "the arm-pit of America."
I think many Jamaicans are living in the middle of a decision of whether to come home to live or not. There is an ongoing mental argument that includes the pros and cons, with the decision probably finally coming down to "the money."
Or maybe not?
I'd love to hear from the readers of this blog, either privately or publicly, anonymously or not...
Are you thinking about moving back to Jamaica? What are some of the things that you think about? What are some of the pros and cons? What is the percentage chance of you returning to live before retirement?
In this case, my decision process was not typical, for various reasons I'll discuss soon, and I think we'll all benefit from hearing from a few people other than me!
