Taking a break in #Canada. 10

Trying to Explain it All.

I tried to explain the past four years of my life to a friend over dinner. She knows my journey, and she knows my family well and as I spoke, I knew she was a bit lost.

The journey I have been on has been incredible and in many ways a journey of self-discovery.  I have many stories to tell. However, when I try to explain, it snowballs into so many offshoots of the story that even the short and simple version is a long one.

As one thing leads to another, I realize I have been lucky to have chosen the path I am on. Why, when, and how this will end… I haven’t a clue. I am enjoying the ride and that is what matters.

Would I Have Been Able to do This in Canada?

I imagine I could have… However, I think I needed to step out of my comfort zone. I needed the advantage to go on and I have. A few people told me to be careful and even the job I left behind was open for me for 6 months in case I wanted to return. I will forever be grateful for that and to my friends who offered me that massive breathing room when I moved abroad.

Yet I don’t miss it one bit. I have the knowledge, now I have the experience of all that and more. I am no longer limited by the area of language. A new world has opened for me and if you ever have a chance to take such a step, please take it.

Getting ready to leave.

The other day I got a notification in my email. It is five days till your flight. The thought of this made me sad. I was unsure of the immediate thoughts in my head. I will miss my son the most and that is a fact. I look forward to him visiting and taking him on to the many places I have explored and visited. I look forward to sharing all that with him and whoever comes to Bali.

I know his life here. He and his girlfriend are busy with work and school. While I am here even, we struggle to get enough time together. It is all good. I know his life, and his schedule and I know what he is doing most of the time. This makes it easier…


The amazing amount of sharing we do on social media and via text, it helps me close the distance between family and friends. The whole point of life and the meaning of life for me and possibly for you is…

Seek happiness over material things…

The new car, the next newer and bigger house does not give a shit about you. Overspending, overeating, and consumption are what we humans do best. Don’t get caught up in that.

Accumulate amazing memories and make the best of your time because my friends we are not getting any younger.

Zsolt Zsemba has worn many different hats. He has been an entrepreneur, and businessman for over 30 years. Living abroad has given him many amazing experiences in life and also sparked his imagination for writing. After moving to Canada from Hungary at the age of 10 and working in a family business for a large part of his life. The switch from manufacturing to writing came surprisingly easily for him. His passion for writing began at age 12, mostly writing poetry and short stories. In 1999, the chance came to write scripts. Zsolt took some time off from his family business to write in Jakarta Indonesia for MD Entertainment. Having written dozens of soap operas and made for TV movies, in 2003 Zsolt returned to the family business once more. In 2018, he had the chance to head back to Asia once again. He took on the challenge to be the COO for MD Pictures and get back into the entertainment business. The entertainment business opened up the desire to write once more and the words began to flow onto the pages again. He decided to rewrite a book he began years ago. Organ House was reborn and is a fiction suspense novel while Scars is a young adult drama focused on life’s challenges. After the first two books, his desire to write not only became more challenging but enjoyable as well. After having several books completed he was convinced to publish them for your enjoyment. Zsolt does not tend to stay in one specific genre but tends to lean towards strong female leads and horror. Though he also has a few human interest books, he tends to write about whatever brews in his brain for a while.
