Faith and the Impossible Dream

Today is the 11th May, 2017. It is six years today since my two children and I jumped on a plane with only three suitcases to fly across the ditch.We were lucky to be moving to some kind of security. We were changing from a single parent family of three, to a two parent family with my boyfriend (who I was fortunate to have known very many years).
It was a move I felt compelled to make. Although I was happy in my beautiful, healing, tranquil town of Paihia, Bay of Islands, New Zealand, I felt Sydney would give me an opportunity to travel the world. I wasn’t sure I’d have the same opportunity if my boyfriend moved to New Zealand.
It was exciting taking Noah and Aaliyah on their first plane ride. They were ages 2 and 3. It was more exciting that we would be moving into a little apartment in Bondi, Sydney. We were walking distance from the famous Bondi Beach and it was a great little place to start out.

I don’t know what my expectations were. I know I already dreamed of someday travelling the world with my children. I expected it would be a lifelong dream, something we could maybe do when the kids were teenagers, if I somehow saved enough money.

I am smiling as I write this because I realise world travel with my family was one of my biggest, seemingly almost impossible dreams, and it’ll be my reality very soon.

In the six years since I arrived here I’ve ticked off some amazing goals. I got to go to the Bathurst V8 Supercars, I went ice skating on Bondi Beach, I travelled through Europe, I got married in Rarotonga, I graduated university, I’ve got a whole extra child (?!?!), I’ve had laser surgery on my eyes, I’ve hand fed a wild dolphin, I’ve started my business and we reached our saving target which will allow us to travel.

Today is special. I’m celebrating six years of hard work, and now we are almost at the freedom life. It was a life I had dreamed of, and now it is becoming very real.

If the life of travelling with your family appeals to you, don’t be afraid. Be bold and brave. Get out a diary or journal and write a list of your dreams and goals. You have a huge database of knowledge – Google. Search and discover how to live your dreams. Because you’ll probably only regret the things you didn’t do. And these kinds of dreams are definitely worth pursuing!
