"...gonna take her for a ride on a big jet plane, hey hey..."

I could feel the mugginess of the weather outside from inside the 15 hours worth of circulated airplane air. I was nervous, scared, excited and in a bit of disbelief as I started to disembark from the plane. I had made a choice like no other and I was determined to follow it through one way or another. If you had told me in that moment that I would still be in Sydney two years later, I would have never believed you.

January 8th marks two years from the moment that I arrived here to fulfill a goal and see what life had in store for me. It's been a perilous journey. One full of experiences that will never be duplicated and memories that will live within me for years to come. I've been exposed to a way of life that I had only ever dreamed of and I have seen places that people from where I come from never get to see.

Every time that I exit a plane and a new city or adventure awaits me, I relish the moment. I take it in and value it in a way that I can't describe. I used to lay in bed at night and think about how different life would be when I was able to have these adventures and here I am, living them. I have made a personal vow to never go back to how I was before. Life is meant to be lived and not just some hum-drum process to get through and I have to stay diligent with myself when it comes to that.

The picture above was taken of me when I lived in Atlanta and it always bothers me when I look at it because I remember that night as being such a depressing night for me. I don't remember why I was depressed but I knew that I needed a change and that I needed to shake my world up a bit and Australia has given me that. No matter where I go or what I do in life, I will be eternally grateful for the savior that came to me in the form of a country. I always used to think, "life will be better when I go to Australia" and, it is.

Thanks so much for the comments. Much appreciated. You know, we all get caught in the doldrums of life but sometimes, you just have to take charge and see where an adventure leads you.
