To blog or not to blog.

I always like the idea of sitting down to write a post on this blog, but everytime I go to start… I don’t know where to start. It’s not that I don’t have any thoughts, but the real problem is, I have too many thoughts.

Currently the future is my top thought. By the future I don’t mean years and years away, I mean next month or even next week!! I’m always living my life in the future and considering what will happen next. I can not seem to settle and I always consider the next adventure to be planned.

When I consider this time last year, I would never have thought I would be living in the Canary Islands, attempting to teach crazy Spanish four years old. Who knows where I could end up next year or the years after that.

The thing that makes my mind boggle most is that I will not know until these things happen and I can’t really do anything about that. These things are unknown for a reasons and it is up to me to take things step by step and make these big decisions. Perhaps the best years of my life are still to come!! My thoughts will continue and hopefully they’ll lead me in the right direction.

Home is where the heart is!

The past week I have been home for a short break, which certainly wasn’t long enough. Running from one side of Ireland to the other side of the island, I barely had time to rest my head on my pillow. If I’m honest though, I wouldn’t have had it any other way.

I wanted to make sure I saw as many of my friends and family as possible as its funny, as a lot can change in three months. My little cousin was the most surprising change. He turns two in September, and when I left him he could barely speak. Now you couldn’t stop him talking and has a fascination with bins. Lol

The stress and worries that I had in Spain, disappeared as soon as I touched my feet on Irish soil and I felt at ease. I was so busy I didn’t have time to think of the worries and thoughts of work and the future. As much as I am excited to get back to the sun, sea and the Spanish lifestyle, I have started to worry about the future and where I want to be next year. As Easter ends and summer approaches, I feel I need to sit down and gather my thoughts on where I see myself next year.

The pros and cons need to be organised and my thoughts need to be mind mapped. I hope this mind can focus for a while and help a girl out.
