Podcast 1: Seeking “Home” in the World with Act for Change with The New Nomad

Episode Notes

Across cultures and centuries, people of varied means have made homes for themselves and those they care about. The people who live with us and the material possessions with which we furnish our home space are essential aspects of the place where we dwell. Complex interactions with all these elements give a definition to home as we see it. And as we define home, we also define ourselves in relation to it. Cliche as it seems but home is where the heart is.

Lea Misan, Director of the mental health charity, Act for Change, joins Andrew Jernigan and Allen Koski in this episode of The New Nomad. They discussed how we as humans crave connection more than anything and the same thing makes us thrive in this world. They also talked about building relationships impacts digital nomads the most, given their mobility, and creating meaningful connections would benefit their mobile lifestyle. So tune in this week and get ready to learn a lot about relationships, connections, and why no man should be an island.

Episode Notes

Set Yourself Free, Dreaming of the Future – Lea Misan

As an International, I felt lost in a new culture, again and again, as one who doesn’t fit in, isolated from friends and loved ones back in my home country. I wanted to feel accepted and at home.

I hid in a corner and waited for permission to invite me in for others to initiate.

I busied myself doing other people’s bidding.

I deferred to the needs and wants of others and pleased others at my own expense.

I froze at the slightest whiff of conflict.

I blanked out each time someone else chose to ‘define’ me.

I was accused of not doing enough and not having a backbone of my own.

To shape the life I wished to live, I knew I had to do something. It took me years to crack out from beneath the frozenness I felt and then to start identifying what was taking my power and draining my energy.

I was able to interrupt old patterns and change the dynamics of power that held me captive. And I started to gain my freedom and take charge of my own life.

My organization provides coaching, psychotherapy, and group work to Internationals, Expats, and Global Nomads in particular, but also many people.
