When coming home...
Emotions and differences Ellie faced - Immense appreciation for Australia but also a challenge to move back so decided to move to a different city. Lit up with gratitude and joy.
What had changed for Ellie - Saw that 'Australia sparkled.' Ellie started a relationship with her now partner which was 'not part of her plan' but describes it as the best thing that happened to her. Knew life would never look as it did before she went away.
Biggest stress - You are never going to go back to what you have had before so you morn that. Her relationships shifted because she was an evolved version of herself so she had to find her role within her family and friends.
How Ellie supported herself - Not needing to rely on external situations to make decisions. Trusted herself and her choices. Focused on what she wanted and stayed organised. Ellie set goals and went for them.
How Ellie used her mindset - Trust and focus and a mentality that anything is possible. Setting goals and truely believing in her unique magic.
3 Lessons learned from travel and reverse culture shock
Trust yourself and believe in what is true for you - Your environment really shapes who you are.
The power and value of travel of new experiences, adventure and travel.
I am my conscious mind - I can be who I want to be and I can choose again, I can make changes in my life and I dont have to stagnate and be stuck.
Advise to herself for returning home - allow it to be what its going to be, dont fight it, allow it to unfold as its meant to.
