Many women had to make a decision in life that takes her far away from home due to marriage. 

A decision that separates her from family and friends whom she knows all her life.

It is exciting to start a new life in a new place. But, it can equally be daunting and frightening. Because you don’t know anybody apart from yourself, and you know that you will be on your own in whatever happens.

You also know that it does take time and effort to meet people and make friends. So until then, you may come across many things that you wish you’d have somebody to share it with … apart from your husband, or your significant other. 

Now, if you’re one of them……who ended up relocating far away from your homeland, or simply moving to a new place where you hardly know anybody …

A woman stretching her arms to embrace new challenges of being Thousands Of Miles Away from her old life

Here, you can find tips and inspo to embrace life changes that are based on self-experience of more than 14 years being away from family and friends.

And I’m Devy, the woman behind this blog. I have a mission to help you cope with new life challenges. So that you can create happy little bubbles in your new life, and build a happy family that you dream of.

I’m originally from Indonesia. Due to marriage, I relocated to the UK more than 14 years ago and have been living there since.

Over these years, I’ve learned how to deal with the challenges of starting a new life in a foreign land. 

Becoming a mom of two whilst being far from my own mom, family, and friends that leave me with literally non-existent help to care for my babies. Building and nurturing relationships with my extended family. Selecting friends as I build my new toxic-free social circle. And coping with cultural shocks without losing my own birth-culture — are just some of the challenges I need to overcome. 

I hope what I share on this blog can give you practical insights to help you become an amazing mom for your children BUT at the same time able to keep your own wellness.

Because being a mom is not easy, and being a mom far from your family and friends is even more challenging.

So I hope I can be your friend. Through the journey of my life’s highs, downs, and in between.

I hope you can take away useful info that can help you be your best for your offspring and spouse/partner without neglecting your own personal growth.

Finally, I thank you for coming by. Together, let’s build the life we always dream of, a fulfilled and content life. Even if we’re Thousands of Miles Away from the life we once knew.

With so much love and wishes,
