With a tummy full of emotions, I inhale turquoise oceans and salmon coloured clouds. We walk for hours through places that are alive. Fear descends. Not really knowing what I am doing, I have lost track of time.
It fills my heart with liquid gold to be living a dream I was once told to be impossible. Chills still trace their way across my skin whenever I actually stop and think about the past few days. Days full of moments that steal the breath from my lungs.
A whole 24 hour day of traveling, no decent sleep, and somehow I still had this endless flow of energy circulating through my veins. The excitement of a child in a 4 floor candy shop. The eyes of an owl at midnight. If I wouldn’t have arrived when it was dark, I would have definitely gone outside to explore. Straight away.
Right now, it has been 10 days since my arrival to Sydney. I have not stopped exploring for a single day. Staying up too late, waking up too early.
Before this experience, I didn’t even know some of these feelings existed. Or that I could experience a whole range of new, vibrating, intense emotions. Having so many plans, I know there are still many more to come. I am hungry to live. To nurture my curiosity.
NEER IN A MILLION YEARS DID I SEE MYSELF GOING BY MY OWN TO THE OTHER SIDE OF THE WORLD
I would have never been here if I wouldn’t have faced fear or accepted the challenge. There is always a cage, a barrier you have to crush over. Letting go of fear will turn your cage into liquid and allow a new world to pour in. Life is worth more than the limits our minds create, and everything starts with a single thought and baby steps. It takes time, and hard work.
I am full. Full with all of the love and encouragement I have received from the people that are close to me. That gave me the strength to dive deep into the unknown. That listened to my crazy plans and dreams, that gave me unexpected surprises, that have been by my side until the day before my departure (and after).
And people I have met here in Sydney. Arriving with a caring, warm welcome with open arms that made me feel like home. Strangers that soon turned into family. People that have made adventures turn into unique, unimaginable, unforgettable memories from day one.
WORDS CAN ONLY SCRATCH THE SURFACE OF HOW GRATEFUL I AM FOR HAVING ALL OF YOU IN MY LIFE
And of what I am feeling right now.
I love you.
