A short personal update

Dear friends. It has been a while. I want to update you with some short facts.

Back in Denmark:
Because of different personal circumstances back home, I had to leave New Zealand and go back to Denmark to be with my family.

Family:
I am in the middle of a divorce. A thing like that is never happy for anyone. We communicate very well. We can laugh together and have mutual respect. The kids are doing good. I am grateful for that. Very much!

Making a professional difference:
I know I made a difference in New Zealand. The people were more than I could have hoped for, the community was terrific, but time was too limited. I loved it and worked hard for it while I was there.
I could not have done it differently, but I am shameful to have promised something I had to reverse.

Looking forward:
I am still the global librarian, but I also finished my Master in Public Governance. I am now working as a self-employed library and leadership consultant in Denmark and worldwide having worked for organisations in Brussels, Amsterdam and Copenhagen so far.

Thank you:
To amazing friends near and far for personal and professional support, I appreciate it more than you can ever imagine.

One thought on “A short personal update”

  1. Thank you for telling us about your move back to Denmark and your family circumstances. I am sorry that you are going through your difficulties. Life can take us in many unexpected directions. Shame is a particularly hard feeling to come to overcome – I know that I have certainly felt it in the past and it took me several years to understand it and move forward from it. Though I think you are probably being harder on yourself than anyone else. Please be kind to yourself and I wish you all the best for your future global librarian ventures and even more so for your personal happiness.
