…and we’re back!
Sorry for the hiatus, everyone. True to my introvert nature, I needed time off to recharge after spending 31 days unable to distinguish where my fingers ended and the keyboard began.
Originally, I was sure I’d spend the final day of my personal blogging challenge waxing poetically about the wins, struggles, and lessons learned. By the time I reached the finish line, though, I was too exhausted to know what I thought.
Over the past two weeks, I’ve reverted back to “business as usual;” amidst all the life living and trip planning (Sri Lanka and the Maldives, here I come!), a handful of little gemstones crystallized into four big ideas:
And here we are, thirty-one days later. We made it!
Originally, I thought I’d use this final post to summarize the process, chronicle the changes, and celebrate the successes.
Now that I’m here, though, I think I’m going to save all that for a later date; let it marinate and see what surfaces after a mini-vacation.
Rather than reflect, today I’m going to recap, because together we have covered a lot of ground.
Over the course of a lifetime, we build a collection and label it “Important.” Important People. Important Ideas. Important Items. Important Places.
I never would have guessed that Australia – and, more specifically, a quaint little oceanside town of 8,000 Victorians – would become an Important Place.
This past Thursday marked three months since dismantling my life as I knew it and moving to Australia. You could call it an annivAUSary… but, then again, you probably wouldn’t.
It also marked three weeks since shacking up with my newest – and least favourite – housemate: writer’s block.
