Just a year ago, I began what became not just an amazing adventure but also an eye-opening revelation about my own secrets that I never knew existed. Australia wasn’t just a trip; it was an awakening. It was a realization of what makes me happy.
The Land Down Under ignited the flame of desire for a life of travel and writing. Now the embers burn brightly each day, and sometimes I feel like the fire will consume me. Sometimes I feel like my life isn’t mine. If I only discovered this fire sooner and wasn’t so afraid of getting burned, would my life be completely different? Maybe I would be in the Peace Corps. Maybe I’d still be in Australia. Maybe I’d be living in South America.
