Another Adventure

by - June 08, 2017

I'm moving to Australia.

I know. Crazy. That's kind of how I'm feeling right now, a little bit crazy. Crazy for just up and deciding I want to move more than 16,000km away from home. Crazy for putting off my adult responsibilities for another year, instead of trying to settle into the start of a career. Crazy for not listening to people's reservations about my decision, and just doing this for myself. Believe me when I say I get it. I understand that this is a bit of a reckless, impulsive, crazy decision. But it's also the most exciting one I've made in months.

When I first decided to take a year off after graduation, I was always choosing between the UK and Australia. And obviously, I ultimately chose the UK for many reasons but a very significant one being that it would allow me more opportunity for travel. And it did just that- I got to visit and explore some incredible countries in Europe, for which I am forever grateful. But that did something to me. It ignited this spark inside of me, this urge to see more of the world, and if I'm being completely honest, had me a little too comfortable with a lifestyle that didn't include work. Well, one that didn't include a 9-5 job I should say (it may not have been a full time job, but taking care of kids is definitely still work!). Because honestly, I really hate working. Perhaps it's because I don't know what I want to do, or because I haven't been able to find a job I am truly passionate about, or maybe I will never be truly happy in any job. But either way, moving away from home and the traditional way of living life was an opportunity that I will always cherish. When I came home, while I was happy to be here, that new way of living I had experience was still fresh in my mind and in my memories. And the thought of going to Australia, has been floating in around in the back of my mind since then.

So I decided I am going to go. I'm once again going to pack a suitcase, say goodbye to my friends and family and move across the world. I'm itching for a new adventure, and I want to continue pushing myself outside my comfort zone.
I understand that some people may not agree with my decision, some people may think it's a silly choice, and some people (my mom) really don't want me to go. But ever since I said the words out loud, "I am moving to Australia", I feel like passion and excitement for adventure have re-entered my life. Emotions that I've not felt in months, and I don't know how else to explain it except to say that it all feels right, and that I'm really happy about that.

I will of course be taking you guys with me on this new adventure, this journey. And I hope you're as excited about that as I am. So stay tuned for more updates, timelines and everything in between.

Much Love,
Spenser xx
