Thoughts about life

I’ve not written a post in a while. I’ve kind of been distant but can’t really explain in what way. I don’t feel like there has been anything worthwhile to post.

I’m a little confused about my purpose and what I’m doing especially as it’s nearing a year since I stepped foot in England. Those few days of seeing my family and friends in between journeys really just kept me going.

Over the 15 months, I’ve been living the dream: living and volunteering in South Africa, then working and travelling in Thailand for 6 months, then travelling South East Asia for 2 months and now I’ve been living and working in Australia for the past 4ish months.

I came to Sydney to carry on the adventure, explore new places and meet a friend who was living here, knowing she would be leaving in January. However, I just don’t know. Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love my job working as an ESL teacher for adults. The students are amazing, progressing and I am just able to have conversations and fun with them.

I’ve not made as many friends as I would like, and the ones I have made are leaving the country. I know in a backpackers world, people are coming and going all the time but I think I’ve always been the one on the move so it’s never really affected me until recently. I don’t feel connected with those from home mainly because I am rubbish at keeping in contact, and they are slowly forgetting about me. That’s the life we live in.

Also, at the moment I feel like I have no purpose. In the past, there was a desire or reason why I was in the previous countries but here I feel like I’m wasting away. I’ve not got involved in a church as much as I liked for several reason: the church I’ve been going to is so big, I’ve been feeling distant from God and some other distractions. I just don’t know. I must be here for a purpose but not quite sure. I know the only thing to do is rekindle my relationship with God and step out in faith as well as be obedient to God’s plans for me.

Salar de Uyuni still fascinates me; it's one of the most extraordinary places I have been. Where have you been that just doesn't seem real?
