One of my earliest conversations with a friend who has lived here in Korea for over five years was to give it at least three months until things started to settle. At two months, I (probably prematurely) made a video updating everyone on how life was going. Whilst my work life and home was together, I still felt a longing for home that I couldn’t quite come to terms with.
In these past two and a half months, I have finally come to not only accept, but to love my life here in Daegu. Not only am I growing increasingly passionate about my job, but I am building bonds and friendships with people in and outside of work.
As the new year unfolds, I am proud to say I am in this headspace after five tumultuous years battling mental health struggles. This year, I am focusing on all the wonderful things in my life, starting with the trip of a lifetime to Thailand with my mum. I’ve visited Thailand a few times in the last few years – you can see all of those posts by clicking here – but I can already tell this one is going to be different. I’m so exciting to document the entire trip and to see the country again through fresh, positive eyes.
