My Story

The truth [pause for emphasis] is that I’m more or less winging my adult life. 

Up until the age of twenty-six I felt like I was living my life on cruise control. I was happily and mindlessly following the path that society had planned out for me. I received a couple degrees, started a career in the corporate world, I planned to marry the man of my dreams, buy a house, have a couple kids, etc., etc.

One day it hit me like a ton of bricks that the future I had laid out for myself didn’t excite me at all. So I took a step back and thought about all the things that did excite me.

This is what I learned: (1) I love to live in other countries, learn the language, get to know the people, and truly understand the culture. (2) I enjoy traveling but quick trips don’t allow me to really immerse myself in the culture, (3) I have a strong desire to make this world a better place, (4) When I get too comfortable in one place, my life begins to feel stagnant and I am not my best self. It makes me feel uninspired and that weighs heavy on my soul, (5) I thrive when I am outside of my comfort zone, experiencing new places, and meeting new people. The challenge lights a fire in my soul. It makes me feel inspired, incredibly happy, and at peace.

So what am I up to now? What are my plans for my future?

Well, I have thrown a curve ball into my life. I moved to Sydney, Australia.

I have a Work and Holiday Visa that allows me to live and work in Australia for one year. 

There are a number of variables in my life at the moment and I have no idea what the future holds for me. 

One thing I know for sure is that I am really freaking happy. I know that between my determination and the universe having my back, I will figure it out and all will be well. 

The purpose of this blog is to encourage you to be the best possible version of yourself and to inspire you to get our of your comfort zone!

I believe you stumbled upon this blog for a reason and I really hope you stick around.

Love & light,

Annie
