The Australian Diaries ✨

Australia Update:

I know I’ve been extremely quiet lately and the reason being is that not only did I make the big move from South Africa to a Adelaide but rather from Adelaide to Perth too!

Who would have thought within the 6 months of being in Australia I would have moved already! People have asked me, “wasn’t I scared?” “Don’t I miss South Africa?”

The sad reality of it all is that the place that I once loved living in, is deteriorating into a place that no longer has a bright future, and I feel that until you’ve had the opportunity to travel and experience other places around the world, you don’t realise just how much is out there.

Moving to Australia was probably one of the most terrifying things I’ve done (luckily I did it with the man I love, otherwise I wouldn’t have been so brave) but let me tell you, it was the best decision of my life, and there is absolutely nothing I’m more sure about.

In the short amount of time that I’ve been in Australia I’ve grown so much as a person and become so independent. It’s been scary not knowing anyone, not knowing anything but slowly overtime it becomes normal, as humans were born to be able to adapt to any situation that we find ourselves in and that’s exactly what I’ve done whilst being here.

I’ve not only had to find one job but rather two and both times you’ve got those nerves about being the newbie and will I fit, or better yet will I know what I’m doing, and as time goes on you slide into the role and it feels as if you’ve been there a lifetime.

I am honestly so privileged to be given the opportunity to have this experience and to create a future in which there is hope.

Moving is not easy, I’m not going to say it’s a walk in the park because it’s not, it puts any relationship to the test, someone said to me the other day that the youth just throw the towel in when things get hard and that’s true, how many relationships end quicker than they started, but see that’s the thing, Michael and I have a connection like no other, one where there is understanding, compassion and a love for one another.

It’s easy to get frustrated and upset but at the end of the day you’ve got to take a step back and remember that your lives have changed, and your routine is no longer there and therefore it’s about supporting one another, and realising that slowly over time you will build that structure and routine. This journey has made me realise just how lucky I am to have found someone who supports me, loves me and who challenges me in a way I never knew possible.

I cannot thank Michael enough for becoming such an important person in my life, and for walking this journey called life with me.

If you’re thinking about moving, I would stop thinking and start planning. Remember that in the end, we only regret the chances we didn’t take.

Now that I’m slowly starting to settle into my new life in Perth, I will slowly be starting to share all my adventures and challenges with you ✨

Yours faithfully,
