From South Africa to Thailand… I don’t even know where to begin!!

These past few weeks have been incredible, adventurous, and way out of my comfort zone. We left South Africa with nothing but a suitcase and a backpack each – our entire lives in one place, ready to be moved. Although this isn’t the first time I’ve done the “moving countries” thing, the feeling never changes!

It’s a completely different experience than going on a vacation, and your emotions are all over the place. So much excitement, yet always that element of the unknown. And of course, leaving behind those we love – never an easy feat, no matter how exciting the adventure.

So you can see where all the emotions were coming from, not to mention it’s still our honeymoon so it’s supposed to be this time of romantic enthralment with each other, not worrying about anyone or anything. And it completely is that – just mixed in with all the other experiences at the same time!

Our arrival in Bangkok was one I would never forget. So many people in such a far away place, and yet we still saw a familiar face in the crowd!! I could not even believe my eyes when I saw my sister’s friend standing there.

It’s funny how small the world actually is. In the end it’s all about perspective!

Your perspective about a situation, your circumstances or even other people can completely alter your approach. It can either allow you to have an amazing experience, or prevent you from seeing past the narrow vision you have chosen to limit yourself with.

Don’t let your perspective overshadow your new beginning. Look for the little things to guide and encourage you as you step out in bravery!
