Where am I going with this?

Image unknown.

I don't know where all of the images and quotes I have stolen are going to take me. So far I have designed and decorated 2 houses and 2 beach houses in my head, on paper and on this blog.  A hard lesson to learn is the one about desire and suffering.  The more I desire the more I suffer.  I have everything I need but not everything I want.  Needs and Wants.  When I am in the state of suffering from my desires, I am ready to pull the plug on my blog.  My blog started with a burning desire to get to know Australians better and grow relationships with them in hopes to move and have an easy transition.  I posted on migrating and it seemed to give a spark to my blog and others seemed to be inspired.  Now that the subject has been pretty much eliminated I feel like my blog is very superficial.  I am real good at hunting and then sharing vast amounts of beautiful images.  Good jobs are holding us back.  My husband has been promised a good job and a future with a company here in the US and so we wait.  If only we knew that we could have good jobs in the AU we would have our bags packed.  He is not a risk taker, I say jump and the net will appear. Sorry this post is kinda depressing.  I felt like finally spilling the beans.  Heidi

Oh Heidi darling, this Aussie hears you loud and clear. You will get here one day... your desire is too great. A path will be created and we will all be waiting for you. I married a severe risk taker... we have jumped many a time...and the net hasn't appeared!... sometimes it doesn't work out (and you have to sell your house!)... but then you pick yourself up again and jump again. You will get the opportunity to jump... probably when you least expect it. A-M xx

I understand what your saying and it isn't depressing, it sounds more contemplative. Hang in there...your opportunities will make themselves available when the time is right.

What sort of job is he looking for in Australia? I would be sorry to see you discontinue your blog and I wish I was in a position to say hey I've got just the thing...but alas I am not but who knows if you put down what you want someone may see it and hey presto! We can always do with more lovely people here in OZ!

Please don't pull the plug on your lovely blog - we all enjoy your posts and gorgeous images. I completely understand your restlessness though, and I get exactly the same sometimes. My hubby is no risk taker either, so it can be hard to find a happy medium. You will find a way to make it over here if you want it badly enough, so when you do I'll make sure I have the coffee ready! K xx

I'm the risk taker here dear Heides - Mr. MOTH is sooo conservative & indecisive it takes him 2 hrs. to decide on a menu choice in a restaurant!! I'm with A-M, we'll see you here one day, that's for sure.
Millie ^_^
P.S. My word veri was 'caring' - & I do!

I agree whole heartedly with AM - we hear you! I am a massive risk taker, luckily or perhaps unluckily I just have myself to look after, but in the end I feel the dreaming and the leaping pays off. I understand the blog lull too, it is an affliction I suffer from every few months, but now it is such a constant in my life I just can't get rid of it! We are all in the same boat, hang in there xx
