Next stop, the northern hemisphere 🙌🏽
I’ve been talking about doing this for far too many years.So long to the point that I don’t think half of my friends believed I was actually leaving New Zealand until just days ago.
The reason it hasn’t happened sooner is because I always thought it wasn’t the right time.Since then I’ve learnt that you’re never going to feel like it’s the ‘right time’. There will always be something going on which will influence you to push back your dreams.Just a few more months, another year..that’s what happened to me & that’s why, 5 years after I told myself I was going to go, I’m finally going! .
Some of you may think I’ve got life sussed. My job the past 7 years, balancing uni for the past 3 &(lack of) a social life as well as traveling around when I had just a few days off work..That couldn’t be further from the truth. It’s been so bloody hard & I’ve wanted to give up many times especially with losing my Moma two years ago this month. Me having life ‘sussed’ couldn’t be further from the truth.
A perfect example of that right now would be the fact that I’m flying out to Canada today to start my new life aaaand, I don’t even have a place to live when I get to my final destination, nor have I booked a bed at a hostel 😅
Currently I’m starting to think I may be winging this one a little too much.. .
You know what, what the heck.
We live & we learn right🤷🏽♀️
So my message to you is that, if you want to do something & it’s been on your mind a while, just do it. What are you really going to miss out on?
A nice pay check & some fancy work clothes or a life time of experiences you thought you could only imagine.
At the end of the day we’re that spark traveling along a fuse line & we’ve got no idea when it’s going to burn out..when it does, will it be setting off a banger of celebratory explosions or is it going to fizz out craving for more sparkle.. Those explosions are the dreams you lived & goals you conquered & that fizz is the desire you had done more.. Let’s go for the satisfying explosion team💥🙌🏽
Dream big & create YOUR happinesss.
No one has life ‘sussed’..no matter what they post on insta👊🏽
Look at me all sultry out shopping with the kids - probably just grumpy 😂. I love these unexpected shots you find on your phone curtesy of your children (I haven’t added the ones where I look really grumpy 😡). I am shopping for a glamorak - something that doesn’t make me look like a granny rambler but does keep me warm and dry in the middle of winter in a van - the search continues!
This weekend we used @grangersofficial wash + repel to reproof our @odlo and @mountainequipment shell jackets. We recommend you do the same and follow the very important steps of our instructional video! #withgrangersyoucan
It's hard to believe that only a year ago today I met this crazy creature for the first time. Safe to say that through our first year of friendship we've set the bar pretty high... HAPPY 1 YEAR FRIENDIVERSARY PAL, here's to all the adventures that await us 💫👭🏻 .
📷 That time we finally made it to the Black Sea after 5 months of paddling 🙃
