I have downsized, packed, flown 2,800 kilometres and now, after a good six weeks of living out of a suitcase, I have unpacked in a place I can call home.
I faced my fears and the things that had scared me. It scared me to think I would be so far away from my family and all that I had known. It scared me to remove those safety nets. It scared me to isolate myself until I made new friends. And, when I landed in the midst of this new environment the night of my arrival, I had a good old cry.
