I spent the first 3 months tired to the bone, & while enjoying myself, there was always little motivation to get up & go, even when I got bored from doing nothing....
I despaired of ever feeling joyful again!
One morning I woke up & it was like I had been struck by lightening....I was buzzing with energy & total joy!
The remainder of my yrs in Bali were bliss!
Since here in Vietnam, I have been experiencing much the same feelings....not too badly, but a distinct case of the "blahs"..
I love Vietnam, but my energy & motivation have been low...
Thoughts of "Have I made the right decision?" "What if I get sick?" ...lots of "what if...."
This morning I decided to go to the Chinatown Market in Cholon, to buy some fabric....
I changed my mind a few times "I cant be bothered...tomorrow" etc, before forcing myself out the door & onto a motorbike taxi for the 30 min trip....
It was a beautiful morning, sun shining, lovely breeze , interesting sights, as we poddled along (my regular moto driver treats me like a valuable piece of china...driving slowly & carefully...lol)
Suddenly I found myself grinning...not just a little smile, but a full on ear to ear grin...an unstoppable grin, which probably made me look crazed...LMAO
My body was flooded with joy, fizzing with energy!
It was THAT MOMENT!!!!!
The moment when you absolutely know that you have made the right decision!...that you are in the right place at the right time!!!
I LOVE my life!
