So in one week from today I leave. It is starting to hit me and hit me hard.
I am leaving EVERYTHING. Everything I know, everything that is familiar, all those comfortable things we tend to grip to.
Important things like our family, our friends, our home.But this week I have been thinking of all those little things I find comfort in, like being able to have my entire closet at my disposal when I desire it, being able to do laundry every (or every other day), being able to understand every word the people around me say, knowing I can look up a map on my phone when I’m lost or call someone who knows the way, how to order my coffee exactly how I like it, being able to find all the brands I’m familiar with, knowing I have people 10 minutes to 7 hours away when I need them.
What happens when these comforts are taken away? What happens when they are 10,018 miles away? When they are a 2 day journey flight away?
Well here is my answer right now, I adapt.
Keep following my journey to see how that becomes reality! I will be posting on this blog weekly on a Wednesday. Since I will be 14 hours ahead of the United States when I first arrive in Australia and 16 by the time I leave, my Wednesdays may be your Tuesdays, so plan accordingly. 🙂
I may post more often if I find time since I am disconnecting myself from other methods of communication (read: Facebook, texting, and calling) therefore should be saving time in my day to explore and share!
Now I will share a few things… things that I bought especially for my trip to Australia. I see every single thing being useful in my future, yet I would have never purchased them if I weren’t going abroad next Wednesday! (Ahhh! So soon!!!!!)
