This weekend, I took the little, Aussie sisters to a dog show. Now, some may think that this sounds lame but it was no ordinary dog show. It was the "World Dog Games", which is like the Olympics for dogs. It was actually an enjoyable time, so don't knock it until you try it. While I was there, the realization that my Aussie time is almost up started to kick in. I have no reason to whine or complain about it ending because this year has been a whirlwind. I didn't come in with many expectations but it has been everything I wanted and nothing that I expected. I came here to prove to myself that I could do it and I have. When I begin to panic about what comes next, as in, "What will I do?" or "Where will I go?", I have to remember that I came here not knowing a soul. I had no place to live, no job, and it all worked out. I have learned that I do not buckle under pressure, I don't give up, and I keep on moving. As I worry about what life has in store for me next, I realize that none of us ever know. We can plan and have an idea but don't write something in stone until it has happened because life changes at the drop of a dime. So, with that said, I am going to continue to enjoy my Australian adventure and see where life takes me next.
