TRAVELJOURNAL: Palm Beach, Australia 16/3-?

As promised here is an update on what my life currently looks like and why I chose to relocate, back, to Australia.

It is just about a week and a half since I decided to relocate to QLD Australia actually only about 10km/6miles south of where I lived before I left in November last year. When I left Australia I honestly thought it was for good, I had no intentions of returning. When I lived here last year I was in contact with this lovely woman who offered to have me as a live-in nanny for her daughter Ever.

When I initially received the offer I was intrigued and delighted yet I already had employment in two different cafés same time I was struggling with several personal issues that combined was just draining all of my energy. I ended up choosing to leave Australia rather than taking the work because I felt in my heart that it was the right decision and it was. However two weeks ago while I was in Switzerland I reconnected with the woman who is now both my employer and dear friend. Like I have talked about earlier I have felt strong connections with the energies of the universe and I suddenly that night felt drawn to send her a message, this was with no intentions of returning to Australia but merely out of concern about how she and her daughter were doing. In her response she asked me how I was doing and I told that I was once again travelling, currently in Switzerland, yet unaware of where to go next. She then told me that her previous nanny just resigned and offered me to replace her. I then knew why I had been drawn to contact her and I knew it was the right decision to go; and it was. That night I booked the flight ticket and two days later I left Switzerland, travelled for 48 hours, across the planet. I got lost a few times obviously, as it is seemingly mandatory for me, but it was the perfect adventure.

I cannot even describe how free I felt in that moment.

Separating with everything that was weighing me down. Not just materials but also people and obligations.

I received a lot of comments from both familiar and unfamiliar people saying “I wish I could do that” or “I am so envious”. Most people think they are bound to their current situation. Everyone can do exactly what I did. But they think they can’t because they are in a relationship or they have an apartment or work or not enough money or not brave enough or not old enough or too old. They don’t realize that their perception of life is delusional.

Life is exactly what you want it to be. You just need to realize that we only get what we ask for. That the outcome of our life stems from our perception of what we think we deserve. If there is something you want, ask for it, allow it to enter your life but also recognize that the key to having it all is believing you already do.
