Will I move yet again to another country, and this time...to Australia?
Well, now that I am already 'down under', here is the story... coming out just in time for 26 January, Australia Day.
The truth is, when I first posted 'Let's play' and the poll along with it, I was driven by pure childish curiosity :-) What does Life have in store for me? Back in October 2010 (hard to believe that more than two years have passed since then!) I was madly in love with a young man whose big dream was to move to Australia. I sincerely wished him that his dream come true. But if so, what would have happened to me? would he ask me to join? would I go? after all, I had just followed my own dream - moving to the Netherlands, and I was so incredibly happy...
There is no way I could have foreseen that the romance would crack and that I would lose my job shortly after, that I would be unemployed for an entire year, that my spirit would weaken and I would apply for jobs wherever there are, just so I can support myself again. At the end, I landed in Australia - just like that, never seriously thinking it would happen.
They say 'God moves in a mysterious way'...I'd say, life happens in a mysterious way, at least that's how my Australia story unfolds...
I've got nothing to contribute but this quote-with-a-beard: "If you want to see the gods laugh, try making a plan."ReplyDelete
I am laughing myself, because I didn't really have a plan :) Thanks for the lightning-fast comment!Delete
So you were destined to go there. Maybe, you need to do a poll about moving to India, not because you have a boyfriend (they're slimy folks, aren't they? :)), but maybe you would like to meditate in the Himalayas or under the Bodhi tree :). Take your pick.ReplyDelete
I guess I was :) As for India - I will come to visit for sure, no need for a poll. Thanks, Rachna!Delete
