Yesterday was one to remember. It was one of those Black Days that you know you will remember as it taught you a lesson. My time here in Margaret River has come to an end and to be honest I am not completely sure what to think of it. I met some of my amazing friends I knew from Bali, I learned some new skills, got myself out there to promote my brand Reckon Headwear, surfed with sharks nearby. As a whole though, this was one of the most energy draining experiences. I have had thus far.
I make mistakes, just like every other human being. Since you have read quite some stories about me and my personality, it is hard for me to forgive myself for prior mistakes. But yesterday, I literally got verbally abused down to the bone for it. Below the belt, held under water and I literally felt sick. Luckily, there is this amazing thing called Skype and I was sooo fortunate that one of my best friends was there. To be able to just cry on her virtual shoulder and let it all go. First forgive myself and then realizing how well I actually have managed here. I completely dove in the dark and swam, crawled, got spit out and swallowed but I am still walking.
My time in Australia taught me a big lesson and that is that I want to surround myself with people who are good for me and I can return it. Next to that, I want to follow my passions, grow my brand and launch a new one with a dear friend. Heading back home to Bali is something I really look forward to, because to be honest, deep down inside, the only thing I am thinking is “get me the hell out of here”. Where actually Margaret River is sooooo beautiful. Which is why I know that I will be back. I will just approach it way differently.
