The 19th of January marked 12 beautiful months of Canadian life.
I year has passed and I don’t believe I’ll be returning to Australia anytime soon. The realization that we only have a year left of our visa has made us reconsider our time here. There is still so much to see, so much to do and so so much more to explore!
I arrived at work on Monday only to find my colleague bitter, frustrated and complaining about her day and it was only 7:45. I stood back and looked at her and thought “boy, do I feel sorry for you.” Not only was it our one year anniversary but I was feeling happy, oh so happy, that we were on another adventure and content on where our lives are headed. I am thankful my work life is not the only thing I have going for me. I am thankful I have beautiful family & friends all over the world. I am thankful that taking a moment in time makes me realize just how I am living my dreams and just how happy it makes me. I remember being a child and how my mother put happiness above any other emotion. I cannot thank her enough for instilling this belief that I deserve and can create happiness in every aspect of my life.
A year travelling has changed me, changed me for the better and changed me into the person I’ve always wanted to become. I don’t know where I’ll be next year and I don’t particularly care. All I know is that I will be travelling the world with my love and exploring unknown places and creating homes all over the world – what could be better?!
Get out there and live your dreams. You are the only one that can make them happen.
