My first weeks in Austria. Although Austria is quite close to Hungary, about 4 hours drive, I’ve only visited the place in my dreams. 16 days ago, I unplastered myself entirely from one country to the other in search of…. well I really don’t know yet.
My blindsight, as I’ve realised, is that I tend to forget to stop and smell the blooming roses. Last year, while I was squirming over my finals, regret settled on me like a morning fog. Turns out I never once patted my back for making it thus far. This attitude is what I aim to change .
God has indeed been wonderful, even in my inconsistency. It took months of preparation, prayers, and learning Deutsch to get here and I couldn’t be more satisfied with the outlook on things. I’m learning to cherish the process, no matter how slow.
The last time I resided in a country, as opposed to touring it, I learnt a lot about who I am, and now Graz presents another stepping marble stone to experience myself in a new culture.
Since this is my first update since the beginning of the new year, I really want to thank my fellow bloggers and readers for the support. We ended 2018 together and practically walked arm in arm into January.
The biggest lesson 2018 taught me is on friendship, and bonds. A random instagram video I watched back in December went. “2018 is the year God revealed the true motives of people in your life”. Fortunately and unfortunately, people I cared for, either packed up and abandoned ship or grew closer to my ever troubling waters.
Now I know that it doesn’t matter how long friendship is, what will be, will be. Stay tuned and stay warm. Love, Idara.
