For me, growth was always defined as knowing your path, achieving a goal and growing towards that. Physically but even more mentally. To experience what life throws at you while reaching a certain goal. My experience in Australia taught me a big lesson though. Sometimes growth is not about knowing where you want to go but more about knowing where you do NOT want to go. For me it was as simple as that. The expression “you are a product of the 5 people you spend the most time with” is one I believe in. And I had (and have) one amazing friend who was there and is one of the most genuine and inspiring souls I have met and some other really good and fun people. Unfortunately I choose to be surrounded by others as well and the scale didn’t balance out to the good side. So I needed to re-define growth. Learning, falling, standing up and sometimes realizing, the time, place and you are just not coming together. That you deserve better than what you have put yourself into. I feel that I have grown immensely in Australia. Ready to head back to Bali and start this new chapter. Not the last but definitely a new one. I strive to become the best version of myself and Australia has just exactly done that for me.
My question for you would be? How would you define growth?
