"'Cause I been waiting all my life for a break like this. It's my chance of a lifetime, I just know it is. I gotta go find these dreams,' was the last thing that I said. And then I did."Sitting in reception, the above Rascal Flatts song came on the radio and those lines struck a cord with me. Something along those lines was what was going through my head this time last year as I prepared to head off into the unknown land down under. How long would I last? Would I hate it? Is this crazy? I didn't have the answers, but I had so many incredible people supporting me. I'm amazed when I meet people who are 18 and 19 who are doing the same thing. I'm not sure I could have done this by myself at 18. Looking back now, I'm sort of amazed I did it, even at 25! I never could have imagined all the experiences I've had, all the people I've met. There have been struggles, and even tears, but I feel as if I've learned so much. I don't have any New Year's Resolutions, but I think a bit of reflection is good sometimes - time to count your blessings and remember the life lessons you've (hopefully) learned.
