6 months

6 Months

6 months ago marks the day I encountered the biggest journey in my life so far. 11,333 miles, 27 loooong hours, 3 flights and 4 airports, and I had arrived in New Zealand totally alone.

6 months has flown by, and I would never of imagined I would be where I am now. I remember the day I said goodbye to my Auntie, and she said, even if its the wrong decision and you hate every minute and you come home in 6 days time at least you have been and done something that you have always wanted too.

New Zealand

Truthfully, I didn’t know what to expect, 6 months ago I someone who was so consumed with anxiety I struggled to leave the house sometimes, I didn’t even think I’d even last the plane journey, let alone 6 whole months but hey, I AM SO PROUD OF MYSELF.

6 months has passed and I’ve moved more times than I ever have in my whole life, moving from one end of Auckland to the other, from living in an AirBnB, flatting for the first time with 4 other people to leasing out a whole house with my boyfriend.

6 months has passed and I’ve explored places I’ve dreamt of exploring, from climbing mountains to spending my Sunday on a black sand beach. I may not have explored as much as I thought I would’ve but I have certainly made the most of the summer I had.

New Zealand

6 months has passed and I’ve secured myself a job for the next 5 years. From working in a small office for 5 months and sharing some funny times with my colleague and the many office dogs, to moving to a job closer to home with a much larger team and more responsibilities.

6 months has passed and I’ve met someone who makes me laugh everyday. I came to New Zealand thinking I was no where near ready to be with someone, but after 3 weeks, I went on a Tinder date and met someone who has changed the whole experience of the past 6 months for me.

New Zealand

6 months has passed and I’ve met some incredibly talented people who have opened my eyes to many things including bodybuilding and powerlifting. Ive actually made girlfriends that I believe will be with me for however long this crazy journey lasts.

6 months has passed and I’ve learnt a lot. I’ve learnt what is important to me and what I stand for. I’ve learnt how to really love myself no matter what, the good parts and the flaws. I’ve learnt now to suppress my anxiety into a manageable box, I believe I can now overcome anything that is put in front of me.

6 Months

6 months has passed and I’m loving every inch of my life. I truely believe that this journey has been the biggest adventure I will ever take on and has been one hell of a ride!

What do I wish for the next 6 months?

Well if the next 6 days, 6 months, 6 years will be anything like the past 6 months I still have so much to achieve and do.I hope that I can join a cricket team and get back into the sports I used to love.I hope I can meet new people and experience new thingsI hope that things from here only get better.

Actually scrap the hope. I know these things will happen and I cannot wait for whatever life throws at me.

    This is the most inspiring post I’ve read in a LONG time. I have anxiety, have had for a good 6 or so years now and I struggle doing anything by myself. I hate it and I honestly feel like I’ve completely lost my independence. The thought of travelling anywhere alone makes my stomach turn at the mere thought of it but I really, desperately hope that one day it’s something I could do. Maybe not as far as NZ – plus I don’t really like hot weather! – but literally anywhere would be a huge accomplishment. I can’t believe how much you’ve achieved in 6 short months. It’s really incredible and you should be so proud of yourself! <3

    Oh wow what a journey. It sounds like you’ve really settled in and found your feet. I completely agree with your aunt. You won’t have any regrets about doing that trip in the future. We’re a family of no-regrets ourselves. Best of luck with the new job and man x
