I had this thought a few hours ago.. can't say what spurred it on, but I just thought, "What if I hadn't made it to New Zealand?" for whatever reason. or, moreso, for reasons totally in my control. what if, after all the hoping and planning, I'd listened to the maybe you should stay voice and hadn't gone through with the trip? how sad that made me was overwhelming. I think I'm not often aware of how much I feel has happened inside of me while I've been here..
the things I would have missed out on without ever knowing them fully..
to have not put my feet in the run-off water of a glacier..
never to have met, and become so trusted and accepted by my 'host family'..
to not realize that I'm capable of overcoming some tremendously powerful infamiliarity, and longing..

being out here, right now, is something I am proud of seeing through to fruition. it may not have been the way I 'expected' things to play out, or in the time frame I'd put on myself; but this has shown me how much in the world there is to see, how much there is to do, and how lucky I am to be doing and seeing it all first-hand.

(next entry will be sometime in the new year.. SEE YOU SOON IAN AND MOMMA!)
