"...remember when we were such fools and so convinced and just too cool..."
A new decade has dawned. 2009 was a year full of experiences that I never thought possible. In life, we limit ourselves by our fears and insecurities and I did that for so long that I had become numb. So, when I finally decided to stake claim on life and make a bold move, it really did change so much. I am so grateful for the experiences, people, and places that 2009 offered me. For 2010, who knows what is next. I am going back to Australia and will see what life has in store for me. Sometimes, if I think too much about Australia, it confuses me. I never truly thought that I would make it there. I was fixated on living in Australia since I can remember and to have it be a reality is odd. Being back home, it is almost as if the last year didn't exist. It is like I made it up in some random daydream but I actually lived it. If there is one thing that I could wish for those around me, it is for them to take that leap and see what life has in store for them. My life is not perfect, nor will it ever be but now, I will not have to sit around and wonder "what if I had gone to Australia?" because I did. So to everyone out there, I wish you all a safe 2010 and to break free of whatever chains may be holding you back and make your life better!
