Are you JUST surviving or Living? 

Are you just surviving through life day in day out or are we living the days with fun, enjoyment and new challenges? 

Hubby and I seem to be asking ourselves this question a lot lately. 

My husband is from London and I am from South Africa. Hubby proposed in SA, we married in SA and try to holiday their as much as we can. Our last holiday their at Christmas just gone was superb. When we got back hubby felt extremely home sick considering he isn’t even from there. 

Hubby would move their in an instant whereas I fell uneasy abou that idea. I have a couple good reasons why but I would also wanna be with my family in an instant. I feel like Africa is part of me and I miss it terribly but I just don’t feel ‘ready’ or ‘comfortable’ to live their full stop. I guess living in London for 19 years and bringing up my kids here just makes me feel like ‘this is my home’ now. Sorry if I’m rambling….

Going back to surviving or living….living in South Africa would be very different compared to here, not only is the weather amazing and their is much more space to drive, live and breath, we would be with more family, the kids would have cousins to play with and I’d be closer to my dad and brother….(I sure would miss mum though😢) these should wanna make me wanna move straight away but you also have to pay health care and schooling is private and crime really worries me. It’s funny though, when I’m their on holiday I feel so happy and so content but who doesn’t feel that way when they are on holiday anywhere in this world. Living life in Africa you really do get to live, outdoor living is the best too. Although summers in London are brilliant and so fun, I feel the majority of life in London is just trying to survive. The cost of living in London is extremely high, so many people most the time can’t even afford to rent yet alone buy property. We are very lucky not to have to pay for schooling and health care but we all still moan that service can be shit 😴it’s getting boring! So South Africa Vs England!!!

If we were to stay in England then I would love to be in Kent ‘the garden of England’ I just love the towns and villages in and around Kent. It’s so pretty and that little bit cheaper than London. 

All together though we are extremely confused about what to do!! 

What is life all about? What do we choose living or just plain surviving? 

Please can you tell me if you had to make huge decisions about moving because of either work, family or just to change ur way of life for the best?! 

This is why we miss SOUTH AFRICA…
