Two years. Besides where I grew up, that’s the longest I’ve ever lived in one place. Like most people, when I first arrived in London, I believed the city to be my future.
Yesterday, I left my first graduate full time job - to become my own boss and live a nomadic lifestyle that gives me the freedom to go wherever I want to go, whenever I want to go. There has always been this desire to have a constantly changing horizon within me, and I’ve realised that each person has the power to decide on their own version of a normal life - maybe that is going to be mine for the foreseeable future. Or maybe it isn’t- But I will never know until I try. So I decided to trade the stable lifestyle I had in the city for life on the road.
Truth is, it’s the scariest thing I’ve ever done. Leaving was heartbreaking, and not knowing what the future holds is as terrifying as it gets.. There will be sacrifices to make. There will be struggles, and there will be obstacles along the way without a doubt. But as one wise woman @rosie_daviessmith taught me, there’s nothing to be scared of really - every obstacle can be overcome. I guess from now on, I’m just going to seize every day and make the most out of every opportunity that comes my way. Thank you team @prdispatch for everything you’ve taught me. And as for London, I will be back. Now let’s get packing for the first trip to come - One I’ve impatiently been waiting for far too long.

Yesterday, I turned 23. And although nothing’s really changed, for the first time, being in my twenties really sinks in. This past year as my first year out of uni has been a whirlwind to say at the least, confronted with a million options regarding what to do with my life. But maybe that’s exactly what your twenties are there for - For sorting out who you are and what you need to overcome. Maybe they’re there to make all of the mistakes you have to make. To fail at love. At your career. At your creative and personal aspirations. To pick yourself up and try again, so many more times. And then, by the end of our twenties, maybe we’ll stop feeling utterly lost. //

Why do we know but act like we don’t? //
