I can finally share my exciting news with you guys, I am moving to Ibiza!
I have been back and forth to Ibiza a few times over the last few months. I wanted to get more of a feel for the place and as you know from my Ibiza post here, I fell deeply and madly in love with the place. I remember stepping onto that plane as I was leaving with such a heavy heart, thinking this can’t be the end, surely? That is when I asked the universe to help a sister out ‘I want to be here, please somehow let it happen’ and to my surprise, it did.
So firstly WHAT? I am finally taking the leap and doing something that feels right in a place I have always dreamed of living. I am giving up my life in the UK to move to this beautiful, free spirited, magical island and whilst it sometimes feels a little scary, it is SO exciting. My new job is a dream position and the next step in my career and for the first time in a long time, I am excited about my future again. People will ask me if I’m scared because I’m alone and it’s a new experience and of course I am. Sometimes petrified and overwhelmed, however, what’s life without that exhilarating feeling. What’s the point in anything if we don’t push ourselves out of our comfort zones. After all, we learn the most about ourselves and our strengths when we feel the most uncomfortable.
WHEN? In less than two weeks I will packing up and leaving alone. I am not moving over with my boyfriend or any friends, just me, myself and I. I have a couple of friends out there which will be great. So many times people ask me how I do these things by myself and read in more detail about being a solo traveller here. You can also read in more detail about my journey here. PLEASE don’t let going anywhere alone jeopardise your own dreams and goals in life. Even if its a country you want to visit and none of your friends want to go – just do it.
WHY? WHY NOT? so lets get real here, the UK hasn’t been my vibe really and I haven’t felt settled. I have felt like something was missing. I knew I needed to shake things up again, I get bored so easily, I want adventure and I want to wake up every day excited. I feel like I’ve been on auto pilot whilst I have been in the UK. Half the time not even remembering my days because I didn’t want to because they bored me. Every day is the same – go home, go to work, live for the weekends. It’s not for me but I had to give it a go. And I am so proud of myself if I am honest, because I never in a million years thought I would of lasted even a year doing this.
I have a gypsy soul, I like to explore and meet new people and be around new things. Expanding my consciousness is extremely important to me. I do that by traveling and living in new places and new experiences.
Be true to yourself, be true to who you are and follow your heart, not your boyfriends, girlfriends, best friends dreams, follow YOUR dreams. You have to live your life the way you want not the way you think PEOPLE want you to. After all we only get one, make it count.
So today I urge you, do something you have always wanted to – big or small, take a step towards it.
I hope you will follow my journey with me – I am sure it’ll be a rollercoaster.
See you in ESPANYA <3
