Well, I have been hiding behind excuses in regards to why I shouldn’t write another blog. I have used all the usual reasons like:
- No one reads them anyway (Stop thinking negative. Off course they do and they will love them)
- I’m so busy and I don’t have time to do it (Yes – you are really busy and hopefully that will continue)
- English is my second language (Yes and so what! You are actually fluent in your second language – so toughen up Princess)
- Coming up the new content is so difficult ( It’s not a University Degree and just write from your heart)
- I will start when the kids move out (Perfect time…they are almost gone!)
So here I am sitting in front of my computer AGAIN, feeling really sorry for myself!!! But then I thought just write, don’t think too much about the content, language or all the other excuses. Just write what comes to your mind and heart. It actually reminds me of my Yoga practices when my teacher says – just sit and let everything else go. Just sit.
Like today – it’s a really hot November day in Varsity Lakes on the Gold Coast, Australia and in my opinion, it is one of the most beautiful places in Australia. The lake view from our veranda is spectacular, with the beautiful black swans appearing now and then, people in dragon boats synchronizing their strokes and small sail boats with the most colourful sails is simply wonderful. I often have to pinch myself (almost every day) to make sure that this is really my life and not something I’m dreaming.
In Australia we are so fortunate to live in a safe country with no wars, we have access to the best Organic Produce, we have clean water, state of the art Hospitals and medical equipment, equal rights for men and women, education programs and universities that are diverse and flexible with endless possibilities and much much more.
I was born in Denmark and lived there for the majority of my life. I migrated to Australia 15 years ago and that’s one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life. I’m very grateful for my amazing journey and life Down Under and couldn’t imagine to live or be anywhere else in the world. However, I do love to travel to distant places, as well as visiting my home country and family on a regular bases. Having said that, Australia is my home now and I always get that cosy “welcome home” feeling when the wheels of the plane touch the ground after being abroad.
On top of all of that, I married an amazing Aussie man in 2009, who loves the beach and surf and I don’t think he would survive the long, cold and extremely dark winters in Denmark. I know that I wouldn’t that’s for sure and I’m a strong believer that home is where the heart is.
I can’t believe that after all that hesitation I have actually written another blog. Yeah, and to be honest I’m a bit proud of myself. I might have turned a page in my Blog Anxiety Book and landed on the Congratulations section, which says “you are now a blog writer with endless opportunities”.
