A New Chapter

So, I wasn’t going to post this initially, but I feel like it’s something I’ve really wanted to get off my chest, so here goes…

Hello, hello! I feel like I have a million things to say, but I don’t really know how to put them into words. The past couple months have been quite a rollercoaster, and I feel like I’m finally in a place where I want to start blogging again. 

If you don’t already know, I ended my time in Ireland and moved back to the US a couple weeks ago. It’s been a hard/emotional/crazy adjustment moving back home, and if I’m being honest, all I want to do sometimes is hop back on a plane to Ireland and stay there forever. I’ve traveled all around the world the past few years, and I have never felt so at home like I did when I was in Ireland.

I loved my life in Ireland. I loved who I was when I was there.

I feel like lately I’ve been re-evaluating my life and why I’ve been feeling so down on myself. Change is something that is really hard for me. I get really excited for new adventures and then when they’re happening I completely freak out. Letting go of my life in Ireland is probably one of the hardest things I’ve had to do in my life thus far. It’s been SO hard trying to move forward and so I’ve been seeking all sorts of outlets to help me figure out this stage of my life. I’ve been reading this poetry book about our changing lives, and I read a quote that kind of stopped me in my tracks.

“We must except the end of something in order to begin to build something new”.

I feel like I’ve been fighting the fact that things will never be the same. I could move back to Ireland tomorrow, and it will never. be. the. same. Change is inevitable and I have to grasp the concept that the past year is exactly that, the past. I have the best memories of that chapter in my life, but its time for me to create a new one and move on.

Sorry this has been such a long winded (and a bit of a Debbie Downer) post! I just feel like this is something that’s been on my mind for a while, and I am almost certain there are loads of people who can relate to this in some way. Anyways, thanks for reading you guys. I know it’s been ages since I’ve posted anything on here but I’m trying to get back into it!

Okay one last thing! I have sooo many travel posts to come, but please don’t be disappointed if the content of my blog shifts a little bit. I’m not doing any traveling for a while, so once I’m done posting all my Europe trips, I’m not sure what I’ll put up on here.

Thanks for following along guys.

Love, Kaite.
