Homesickness- just creeps up on you!

24 Sep


Homesickness is something you can’t predict, you don’t anticipate it and comes around quickly.

Homesickness isn’t like a cold or gastro, it is a knot in your stomach, a ache in your heart and a underlying urge to jump on a plane and go back to your homeland.

I have had homesickness many times, the difference with this move is I didn’t get it. I have gone 7 weeks and all good. I thought this time was different. I am older, more mature, it won’t happen.

Then the day came. Yesterday I was officially homesick.

The funny thing is there was no reason for it. Had a lovely weekend- my birthday party, caught with friends, spend time with hubby and signed up for Broadway Chorus. Then I was driving to target and all of a sudden I missed home. Strange.

Was it because I missed my Mum’s 60th birthday?
Was it because I had emails and messages from friends back home?
Was it because I was listening to Cold Chisel?

Maybe it was all the above. So I thought what to do.

Well why not cheer myself up with shopping, a movie and dinner with friends.

Today the homesickness has gone and I am feeling better. I guess what I have realized is a part of me will always miss home, my family and friends. I can’t beat it, I can’t change it. I just have to embrace it.

So this blog is dedicated to my loved one back in Australia. I think of you often, miss you always and you are always in my heart!

    Sarah….some of us have many homes as you do now!

    When people ask me where I am from I always say I have 3 “homeland” roots….I am from California (born in WA state), I spent some of my growing-up years in my grandfather’s homeland Australia, I spent my teens in Colorado. I am always amazed what an imprint those 3 homes had for me. I have been back in California for years….and yet I still feel my roots in Australia and Colorado calling!

    I love your blog!
