A few weeks ago I went on a short trip to Adelaide, South Australia. This decision was somewhat impulsive for me after I realized that I needed a break from my routine and a drive down south was not going to be adequate this time around. So I left on a jet plane and a few hours later I found myself in awe of the heritage buildings and the city streets of Adelaide.
The trip gave me time to explore new sites, stroll down different paths and learn about the history of South Australia. It also gave me a chance to do some soul searching- I’ve been living in the shadows and watching my life pass by and it scared me knowing that I wasn’t in control and didn’t know how to get back on track.
After touching down and returning home, I’ve begun to make changes and I already feel happier. One of these impulsive decisions included creating a blog to write about my days and events that make me feel something. Even every day life can be beautiful if you take a moment to take it all in. Even if it’s just something as simple as running outside to capture the colours of a sunrise, to picture shapes of the clouds or cooking a meal for loved ones, if it makes you happy, then do it often.
As an introvert, I sometimes find it difficult to voice my thoughts or share my emotions. My mind is never empty and I am quite observant of my surroundings. I enjoy moments of solitude, to be alone with my thoughts. That doesn’t mean that I don’t enjoy spending time with others, good company is rare to find and should be cherished.
My blog was initially going to be about my day trips to op shops- my modern equivalent of treasure hunting but after some thought, I’m going to write about my moments of serendipity.
