Yes. I'm the worst blogger ever, I know.
So I have finally moved away. I arrived in Morocco last week, and had no time in between settling in, a quickie trip to Marrakech and starting my new job. Supermarkets are exciting again, because I cant read most of the labels, crossing roads is like an adventure in itself and learning how to drive stick in French, when you can't speak French, is proving to be tricky, and also hilarious.
Morocco is a beautiful country, there is lots to see, and my new job in tourism now allows me to do a little exploring. I have a stack of books to read, and photos to go through.. it's overwhelming, but exciting at the same time!
When you start to feel stuck and unhappy with your life, it usually means only one thing.. boredom. That and throw in a little heartbreak and confusion and its a recipe made to create self destructive little lemmings, and a lemming I refuse to be. It's funny what a little plane ride and a change of environment can achieve for our sanity. Once you learn how to put yourself first, and the things you know you deserve for yourself become non-negotiable, you know you are starting to wake up.
And when you clear your mind and throw the things that weigh you down out the door, you make more space for the things that truly matter. And space for yourself, above all.
