About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Last 3 monthsFeb.-May,I just experienced the farm life(I was a wwoofer) and really inspired me very much,just in Sydney from yesterday and a little "culture shock"(coz too many Asian),try to overcome this!

ABOUT ME

G'day,everybody,I'm travelling in Australia for 9 months,I experienced the couchsurfing twice when I was in Tasmania.
I'm an easygoing and optimistic country girl who come from Taiwan.I like to see different cultures and meet people from various countries.
Last 3 months(Feb. to May),I start travelling on my own and was a wwoofer in a farm which was in Wingham with an Aussie family(WWOOF is a kind of volunteer in a farm).I had an unforgettable memory and enjoy the Australia farm life.
With eyes wide open to what is possible you will see more…more than you ever have.
You will see what is important and what brings meaning to your life.

PHILOSOPHY

Change is a place of seeing beyond the life you planned into new possibilities of what life can be.

Change is a way of growing beyond the person you thought you were into the deeper,stronger person you will become.

Change is a time of leaving the safe place where “you know” and entering the strange place where “you do not know.”

Do not be afraid of change.

Remember the most beautiful times of day are times of change.

The magical light of dawn touches all things with its gift of the new morning.

The rich fire of orange sunset blazes across the sky…gloriously announcing the coming night.

With change come the seeds of new life.

The dry desert landscape can burst into bloom after the thunderstorm.
The dark forest,destroyed by summer fires,will grow again.New trees and wildflowers will flourish in sunlight that was never there before.

Like the seasons,our lives are always turning.

The stark beauty of white,barren snowfields will change.

The white winter fields become wondrous wildflower meadows in spring.

It is here…in the midst of your life changing when you do not know and cannot control what is going to happen that you can finally say, ”I do not know.”

You will wait,like the chrysalis becoming a butterfly,in a cocoon of darkness,for your own becoming.

You will just be.

You will begin to see things as they really are.

You will become aware of the mysterious unfolding of all life.You will become open to what is possible.

If life's own mysterious timing can bring a rose to the fullness of beauty from the bare winter stem…think what it can do with your life.

You will believe in your own new beginning.

You will say “Yes” instead of “No”
You will become willing to be surprised by life.

You will understand that life is not only full of change…life is change.

With eyes wide open to what is possible you will see more…more than you ever have.

You will see what is important and what brings meaning to your life.

You will begin a new journey.
