It’s My Life.

New Zealand. My home. The best country in the world. I love the freedom here, the people, the culture. There are some many things I love about New Zealand. Buy there are still so many things I need to do before ‘settling down’ here.

As the day I leave draws closer and closer, I’m starting to realise how lucky and fortunate I have been to have grown up in a loving, supportive family.

Although mum and dad are but a phone call away, it still won’t be the same as seeing them face to face.

I’m going to miss not seeing them all the time. I’m going to miss the hugs.

I’m going to miss so much about my life here. And yet there’s so much that I’m looking forward to.

I’m looking forward to the new friends I’ll be making and the new children I’ll be teaching. I’m looking forward to growing as a person. I’m looking forward to all of the possibilities.

Life is what you make it. The choices you make today will be the choices you’ll have to live with tomorrow. I don’t want to be living with regrets and the thoughts of ‘if only I had done this’.

Despite being scared, nervous and sad about leaving everything I know behind. I’m excited for the start of my new life.

It’s my life and I’m going to make the most of it.

And to finish on a light note. Here is my favourite mashup of music:

It’s My Life/ Confessions from Glee.

OR if you want the real one by Bon Jovi

Who else has moved to the other side of the world and been nervous?

Or had that terrible nervous/excited feeling? That feeling you get when you’re at the top of a roller coaster.

  1. I’ve moved from India to the US. I made the choice, and it was a tough decision. Unlike may people, my stay here doesn’t have a definite time frame, graduate school where a PhD is involved most of the times doesn’t have a time frame involved. At times, its extremely scary. The reason being the country you left will not remain the way you left it, and hence there is the uncertainty of not being able to ‘connect’ to it when you come back. The change has been drastic for me, from the festivals that are celebrated to the food that is eaten, to the clothes that one wears. I miss home terribly, but then in due course I realized my home was right there in my head.

    Wishing you a success in your endeavors!

    1. Thank you for your comment! It really is interesting to see how such a change can be both exciting and scary at the same time! I’m definitely going to miss my home! I only just arrived in Vancouver (for 4 days) and will be moving on to London after that. It’s right, home is where the heart (and head) is!
