"...evolve your destiny child and you'll never walk alone..."
Tonight was the first time since I have been here that I went back and read past blog entries. It has been an interesting experience. I realized how non-chalant I was in my approach to coming to Australia and I think that that lack of expectation has been my saving grace. Australia has been tough and amazing all at once and there is not one instance that I can think of to change. No regrets in any decision. My whole life, I have felt like I deserved less than others or that I wasn't as good as others. That has changed. Instinctually, I fall into ruts and depression but I have to be aware and diligent now. I have no excuse. I have moved to the other side of the world and done perfectly fine. Struggles came and struggles went but I remained. I remained here and persevered. I win. No one did it for me. I don't know what life has in store for me. I can worry but it is pointless. I have to relinquish that control. Time is fleeting and to ponder that which we have no control over, is useless. In my mind, I am moving on to the next phase of life, what it holds, who knows?
