Somewhere between 1:00am and 2:00am this morning, after dancing around like an absolute idiot to a ridiculous amount of my all time favourite country songs, I realised something completely life changing.

1. I am quite possibly the world’s worst dancer.

2. Adventure is rarely something that you simply stumble upon in life.

Instead, it is something that you must be brave enough to go out and search for and whether I was high on country music or just high on life in general, I couldn’t exactly tell you. All I know is that something in the air was making me feel brave in a way that I never have before. Something was making me crave endless adventure only this time around, I finally felt ready to go out and find it.

Thinking back over it all now however, at somewhat of a more appropriate hour, I would say it’s fairly obvious that the second realisation was perhaps slightly more life changing than the first. Although in regards to this particular story, ironically enough they are both equally as relevent.

I think it would be safe to say that in the past few months my life has changed completely. Everything that I once considered to be familiar has now become just the opposite and the comfort zone that I have spent countless years building, is now basically non existent. Oddly enough though the world appears to have opened up it’s doors in a way that it never has before and while at first I was more than a little lost by it all, it seems that now I have well and truly found just what it was that I was searching for.

Compliments of a little spontaneous midnight dancing and a newfound sense of clarity, it appears as though things have now become so incredibly clear for quite possibly the first time in my life and to be perfectly honest, I could not be more excited about the memories that are yet to come.

Finally, after a lifetime of craving adventure I have found my perfect partner in crime and together, we plan to wander down our very own hand crafted ‘road towards happiness’ one crazy little baby step at a time and while we may be approaching the journey in a way that is both slightly unexpected and slightly out of the ordinary, the universe has already made it undeniably clear that we are without a doubt heading in the right direction.

Needless to say, as you can imagine pen has already been put to paper and our never ending list of adventure appears to be growing longer by the second. So now, all that is left to do is one by one begin ticking them off the list until eventually, our countless adventures have been replaced with a lifetime of memories.

Memories of a time when we no longer sat back waiting for the magic to happen, but rather chose to go out and create it ourselves. Memories of a time when the world was so blissfully beautiful that we had nothing to lose and yet everything to gain. Memories of a time when happiness was no longer something to search for, but rather something to live by. Memories of a time when we knew with absolute certainty that we were exactly where we were meant to be.
