“One day or day one”

“Nobody – not a voice of authority, not your mama, not the foremost expert in your arena – gets to tell you how big your dreams can be. They can talk all they want … but you get to decide if you’re willing to listen.
Another reason people give up on their dreams? It’s difficult and/or taking too long.
Goals and dreams are hard. I get it. Actually accomplishing them is so much harder than you think it will be. Maybe you’re making progress, but it’s only an inch at a time (…) Some days you feel so discouraged you want to cry.
Go ahead and cry.
Rend your garments and wail to the heavens like some biblical mourner. Get it all out. Then dry your eyes and wash your face and keep on going. You think this is hard? That’s because it is. So what? Nobody said it would be easy.
You’re tired? How many times in your life have you been tired but you found a way to keep going? How many of you reading this right now have given up on a dream because it was exhausting to keep chasing it?”

– Rachel Hollis, “Girl, wash your face”

🇫🇷 Je dis souvent que si j’avais su ce qui m’attendais, j’y aurais probablement rĂ©flĂ©chi Ă  deux fois avant d’immigrer en Australie. Et puis j’aurais pris la mĂŞme dĂ©cision, je serais partie quand mĂŞme. Loin des clichĂ©s des reportages sur les expats, je veux dĂ©crire les coulisses de la vie de rĂŞve. Si il y a bien une chose que cette expĂ©rience m’a apprise c’est la patience et une autre que je continue d’apprendre chaque jour: la rĂ©silience.L’Australie, elle m’Ă©nerve autant qu’elle m’apaise et me fait pleurer autant qu’elle m’Ă©merveille. Mais chaque jour je me lève heureuse et en me sentant Ă  ma place.

🇬🇧 I often say that if I knew what to expect, I would have thought twice before immigrating to Australia. And at the end I would have made the same decision to come anyway. Far from the clichĂ©s of the expat dreamy life, I want to share what is happening behind the scenes. If there is one thing that this experience taught me is patience and another that I continue to learn every day is resilience.Australia pisses me off as much as it soothes me and makes me cry as much as it amazes me. But I get to wake up every day feeling happy and certain that I’m exactly where I should be.
