Well, in case you were wondering… I am not currently getting ready to fly back home today like I had originally planned. Today was supposed to be when I was leaving Australia but things have changed for the better 🙂 Here’s a rundown on what’s been going on in my life for the past month and a half…
I’m currently living and working in a small town named Mukinbudin (which has approximately 400 people total…well 401 now haha). It’s an extremely peaceful and quiet place located about 3 1/2 hours northeast of Perth in Western Australia. I am working as a barmaid in the local pub/hotel. I absolutely love it here! The people are super nice and friendly. Finally after 5 months of living in hostels with other backpackers and constantly moving from place to place (basically living out of my suitcase)… I am finally settled down and I get to have my own bedroom (no more bunk beds!!!). I am so blessed to have this opportunity and I am fully living it up 🙂
My main reason behind changing my return date home is that I knew in my heart that I had more to accomplish and 6 months just wasn’t enough time (plus I wanted to come home with some money saved up as well). I know that I am just on the brink of making a huge breakthrough with myself. I am also building my self-confidence through having to depend on myself for support. I am getting stronger day by day and I’m finally living in a place that I love 🙂
This trip is all about the journey and not the destination. I am in the process of recreating myself for the better and I’m doing fantastically. Strength comes from within and as long as you follow your heart, you will always be heading in the right direction. This choice was not an easy one but it was necessary. I must continue to follow my dreams and live life with no regrets.
But I know you all were probably wondering what was happening (and now you know lol). Time has been flying by and I’m soaking up every minute of it. I am sending all my love to you all and I miss each and every one of you. More updates coming soon!
Until next time…
