„Psychology says, always go with the choice that scares you the most, because that’s the one that is going to help you grow“
Making a decision this size is probably never easy, but as soon as you get used to the idea living in an other country, a great way off from everything and everyone you are familiar with the mere thought of it makes you burst with joy.
After I finally venture this step, moving to the opposite of the world, I told myself that it was probably the best decision I’ve ever made.
It was definitely one of those choices which gave me creeps. Didn’t have the vaguest notion of what to expect. The only thing I knew was, that it would take me over 20 hours to get home, over 16.000km which separate me from people I love and a 9 hour time difference which would give me a rough ride to keep me posted. Points coincide. There is, therefore, every indication that staying home with your loved ones would be the way of life.
But what about fulfilling yourself? Once you are young you are able to do all the things you’ve been craving for days, months, maybe years. You have nothing at all to lose. Seriously, nothing. Life goes on and before you know what’s happening life’s over. You want to save money? I still don’t get why people want to save the fun for later. Unfortunately you can’t control what will happen. This was probably the thought which made me leave. Which made me move on.
I hate saying goodbye, especially if you have family and friends who make saying goodbye that hard, which is actually a living proof of true and unconditionally love – but made me pretty sad either way.
Australia already has my heart.
As soon as I arrived it was perfectly clear that I finalized this decision. Meeting new people and get to know a different culture makes me entirely happy. I got to meet so many people, who have already shown me how easy it is to make friends and how happy you can be. They took me to unique spots of this beautiful country and I got to see landscapes and animals I’ve never seen before. Unspoiled nature and uncrowded beaches, which made my heart leap for joy. And since it’s midsummer in Australia, the journey just started. Probably we have to call it a new chapter – the matter is still up in the air.
