Six months in, take a deep breath, heave a sigh of relief. It has been an amazing journey so far and we cannot have asked for a better start.

We dreamt, we believed and we took the calculated leap of faith, together, into the unknown. It's okay to have your head in the cloud, as long as you have your feet on the ground. 

There will always be doubters and they will always question, and instill fear in your mind. Your faith will be shaken and your will tested. Are you sure? What if? There will be many "what ifs?", yet not a single "what if not".

It's the possibility of having a dream come true that makes life interesting. And it's always better to lose some of your battles in the struggles for your dreams than to be defeated without truly ever knowing what you were fighting for.

We lead our lives with the choices we make and we each have only one life to lead. Seize the moment, live your life, live your dreams! Life is but a dream.

It is not always smooth sailing and more often than not, it's the attitude that pulls you through. Stay positive. Through problems find challenges and through challenges find opportunities.

Pray and have faith in God, without whom all things would not have been possible. We may be dreamers and realists but we also believe in divine intervention. 

House sitting at Robin and Russell's has been a wonderful experience. Never did we expect to house sit for four months! We got to know of the house sitting arrangement after wwoofing at Niels and Janette. In retrospect, if we had not gone to Niels and Janette's, this would not have happened. It must be a combination of choices and blessed divine intervention.

Everyday has been a blessing and we cannot ask for more. Here are some moments captured from our wonderful time at Robin and Russell's.

As with a lot of good things, our house sitting adventure comes to an end this weekend, after which we embark on another new journey. The experience has taught us to stay positive and keep the faith. Everything happens for a reason, and if it doesn't, it's not the right time and something else awaits you.

Life is a journey, enjoy the ride!
