Don’t You Think It’s Time?

Don’t you think it’s time
Time to start anew
Time for changing views
Time for making up your mind

Don’t you think it’s time
Time for moving on
Time for growing strong
Time to leave the past behind

You’ve been on my mind
Oh you’ve been on my mind
You’ve been on my mind
Oh you’ve been on my mind

Don’t you think it’s time
Time for quelling fear
Time for a new year
Time for meaning what you say

Don’t you think it’s time
Time for easing doubt
Time for reaching out
Time to open up your eyes

You’ve been on my mind
Oh you’ve been on my mind
You’ve been on my mind
Oh you’ve been on my mind

Don’t you think it’s time
Time for trusting more
Without keeping score
Time to let forgiveness out

Don’t you think it’s time
Time for showing grace
Time for having faith
Time to make more of this time

You’ve been on my mind
Oh you’ve been on my mind
You’ve been on my mind
Oh you’ve been on my mind

The Adventure

2 MONTHS

adventures

Today marks 2 months since we departed Australia. 2 months of living on the road, out of a suitcase with 3 children. There have been ups, a few downs but for the most part, we have been travelling without a care in the world.

5 flights.
4 Shinkansen journeys.
1 roadtrip to Scotland.
8 hotels.
5 serviced apartments.
Countless taxis and trains.
6 airports.

I’ve learnt more about myself on the trip so far than living the last 3 years in suburban Sydney. I’ve learnt first and foremost, patience, flexibility and regaining confidence in myself. That the journey is whatever I want it to be and will be.

hello

Of course, I miss the creature comforts of home. I miss my home! Having my own bed and huge kitchen. I miss friends and playdates. I miss my amazing personal trainer Hayley and our sessions together. I miss my friendly neighbours and quiet street. I miss my car and being able to drive whenever and wherever I want to. I miss my favourite sushi place and the local thai restaurant. But these things? They are all still there, exactly as I left them.

worthit

I’ve noticed that some people haven’t kept in contact much since we left. I’m not sure if it’s an “outta sight, outta mind” issue, jealousy or god only knows. I guess people see what they want to see. This time last year, I was just starting a slow decline into depression and went to a very dark place. It was a life changing experience and only a few stood by me through the healing and resurfacing of it all. I’m not sure if anyone would have wanted my life back then. So I am making up for lost time now and vow never to be that sad and depressed woman again.

This week marks a new change on the adventure as our travelling nanny Marlee joins the family. Marlee will be with us until the end of October when we will part ways with her in Denmark. More to come about Marlee soon! Tomorrow we say goodbye to Cannes and head up the road to Nice for another week in the glorious French sunshine. We have been spoiled with amazing sunshine and warm, breezy nights. Life is great, right now in this moment. And I am happy to say, I deserve the happiness. I am grateful every day that the sun rises and I am alive and well.

No Rest For the Wicked

 

My one heart hurt another
So only one life can’t be enough
Can you give me just another
For that one who got away

Lonely I, I’m so alone now

There’ll be no rest for the wicked
There’s no song for the choir
There’s no hope for the weary
If you let them win without a fight

If one heart can mend another
Only then can we begin
So won’t you hold on a little longer
Don’t let them get away

Lonely I, I’m so alone now

There’ll be no rest for the wicked
There’s no song for the choir
There’s no hope for the weary
If you let them win without a fight
I let my good one down
I let my true love die
I had his heart but I broke it every time

Lonely I, I’m so alone now

There’ll be no rest for the wicked
There’s no song for the choir
There’s no hope for the weary
If you let them win without a fight
I let my good one down
I let my true love die
I had his heart but I broke it every time.

Don’t Say

 

Don’t say that this didn’t hurt
I’ve cried all night
And now it’s your turn
One way to get back at you
Is to turn it around
And do the same to you

Don’t say don’t say don’t say don’t say
That this didn’t hurt
Don’t say don’t say don’t say don’t say
That this wouldn’t work
For you
For you

One day I will forget
I’ll go all day
Without one regret
I’ll go all day
Without one regret

Don’t say don’t say don’t say don’t say
That this didn’t hurt
Don’t say don’t say don’t say don’t say
That this wouldn’t work
Don’t say. Don’t say don’t say
Don’t say…

The Adventure

A manifesto to follow

A-Manifesto-for-Travel-720w

I really appreciate these words right now.

In particular, the advice to slow down and be present. Less time on smart phones and more time looking up and around. Talk to locals, hear their stories. Take photos. Respect the culture.

Home will always be there, live in the moment now. You will never be as young as you are right now.
