I have alot to consider....what do I want in my life? What direction should I take? What is the right choice?......
The world is a big place , there are more corners that I want to discover, cultures to explore, foods to indulge in, people to meet....here I was thinking I was going to "settle" back into Australia. I feel compelled to lay some roots after 13 years of travelling...yet I feel my whole world belongs in Cambodia at the moment (well at least a big chunk), ..I surprised myself that Sydney is not the real place I want to lay them. Why have I changed so suddenly?
I am heading back to Sydney in a 1 month times....I am resigning from my job this week...that I know has got to change.....I do not belong in an office anymore....I have a new dream (well actually a dream that I have had for many years and not indulged it) and new plans.
I am excited, nervous and apprehensive about going home....what awaits me, how will people receive my new lot of plans, considering I was "coming home for good"....I know there will be disappointment, sadness and perhaps some joy that I have made plans to be happy and true to myself....but these questions do lay heavy on my mind and will for quiet some time...
So I took the plunge and booked myself into a TEFL course in Sydney. I am heading back to Cambodia in July for a few months to really see if it is what I want. I want to teach English, I want to cook, I want to learn Khmer, I want that inner peace.
I want to thank a certain person there who has shown me how to be true to one's heart.....to live your life and be truly happy....I knew it was in me, it was buried for such a long time...the fear, the not wanting to take risks, the self doubt buried that true happiness.... I just needed to be shown the path again.........and I thank him......
