A Little Different

Australia is an unusual place, even for someone like myself who is used to living life a little differently. Not that it’s a bad thing, but it goes to show, no matter how much of an oddball you paint yourself to be, there will always be someone or some place that will redefine what it means to be different. The point really isn’t about how different you are, but what you can do with your own uniqueness.

While I’m learning that a lot of my own eccentricities don’t always fit with the common Australian culture, it doesn’t mean I can’t feel comfortable being where I am. It takes work, but then again, rarely anything good in life comes free with no effort required.

    I really like this idea. I think there are some people who don’t feel at home anywhere in the world, in a figurative sense.

  2. I think I am one of those people Jeff that doesn’t feel at home wherever I am. I thought that Australia would be it as far as culture goes, but something just doesn’t feel right about it as well. The closest I feel to a place I can call home is when I am around my partner. Goes to show, home is where the heart is.
