All Part of the Journey
It's been a while since I last posted but I believe with good reason.
As many of you know I have been in New Zealand now for the past two months and admittedly not done that much travelling as of yet. This is because travelling probably wasn't the main reason why I decided to leave home for a while. To me it was all about going to a place to think and really ponder on what I would like to do in my life and what to aim for when I get back. You are probably thinking it sounds a bit crazy going away and being alone for such a long time isn't great for those kind of decisions but just think about it...The other side of the world, only few contacts with loved ones and only your ability to get by. Without commitments or routine from back home I have really gone deeper into myself than I thought possible. I have developed positive thoughts about myself and what I would enjoy doing when I get back.
Its not all been great being so far away may I note with altercations from back home where I wish I could of been there or been there for friends but..there was a reason why I came out here. To think and learn more about myself. I have made so much progress in the last few months as I feel more positive and upbeat for the future, a reason why part of me wants to head back now just after two months. Fortunately I'm not that stupid to waste a visa in such a beautiful country. My plan is to work for a couple more months and then travel for another couple to make sure I get what is on offer over here in its entirety.
I think some people forget that they need to take a break to reflect on themselves and what they have regretted and achieved in the past so they can come up with a plan for the long run in which they thrive. That is what I'm doing right now. It's okay to be a little depressed and anxious, its human nature. The evolution of our society forces us to run before we can walk and so breaks are needed to ensure we have a plan in place to cope and hopefully enjoy what is to come. I know what kind of plan I want to create when I get home and I'm really looking forward to it, I'm just going to enjoy the rest of my break first and just take in the natural spender there is here.
We are all on our own unique journeys with some people with goals and some who don't and it really doesn't matter because at the end of the day its what makes you happy. That's a goal in itself. Whether you take breaks or not is cool because its all part of YOUR journey. I'm just happy I have mine more figured out now!
I hope everyone is doing well and enjoying themselves, thanks for reading.
