Today’s the day. The day I take the biggest leap I’ve ever taken in my life. I’m moving to Sydney. I’m currently writing this on the plane and can’t believe what I’ve decided to do and I think it’s taken me to get to this point to realise how bloody mental this is. Now I know Sydney isn’t like that big of a deal like it’s not like I’m moving to a different country, but for me Sydney is a MASSIVE deal because I’ve only ever been there once. I’ve moved a few places in my life but they have all been places I’ve known well. Darwin when I was 20 where my parents live, then Brisbane when I was 23 which let’s be honest when you’re from Toowoomba Brissy is basically just a city down the road, like no big deal and then of course back to Toowoomba. And now at the ripe old age of 26 when I probably should be thinking about settling down, I decide to completely uproot my whole life and move to a completely new state.
As the plane started making its way to the run way, it hit be like a tonne of bricks what I was doing and thought ‘omfg I can’t do this, what am I DOING’ and was seriously considering faking a probably legit breakdown to make them stop the plane. Then the plane started building speed and I thought I was about to vomit, and then in super slow motion (so dramatic) we take off. It sounds crazy, but this massive relief and almost reassurance came over me and I was like, no this is a good thing, today’s the beginning of something crazy, good, but crazy.
So why the hell am I going down to Sydney you might be thinking, well I’m going down to a new role with my work that has been a dream of mine for a while and with the best company I’ve ever worked for, as well as studying at FBI Fashion College to gain experience in an area of the fashion industry that has been my long-term goal since forever, Buying, and I’m beyonnnnd excited to start both of these new adventures!
So as I sit here a couple of thousand feet in the air, on my way to my new life in Sydney I am filled with a lot of emotions, sadness as I leave behind my dog and my extremely supportive boyfriend, anxiety as I’m not sure what to expect like the only thing I know about NSW is they have a fab wine region (bonus I guess) but most of all pride, because I’m so proud of myself for taking this massive plunge to follow my dreams regardless of all the doubt I would tell myself late at night. Because at the end of the day you’re in charge of your own future, no one else, so If you don’t take control of it yourself then be sure to be disappointed.
