The time has come.
I have packed and moved out of the rental house. Things are wrapping up, hopefully, on the house I own. It’s been a lot of work. Regardless of whether I’m ready or not, it’s time to go. I set a stake in the ground and it’s here…..
It’s just a couple days until take-off. Today has been hectic! A couple last-minute challenges (broken glasses, broken go-pro case) have made things tactically challenging – but what is really pulling me is the emotional stuff.
When I planned this trip, I was in a different place. Not close to too many people. Alienated, to a certain extent. Looking to escape, really. The last several months have been different. I have become close to so many people and I have come to enjoy life in a whole new way.
The gamut and depth of emotions I have felt this past week are like nothing I have ever experienced. Happy and Sad. Excited and Scared. Heart SOARING. Heart ACHING. The whole world is in my future. My love, my family, my friends and Bubba my cat, are being left behind. This is HARD. Really Really Hard. But also invigorating.
I have shed lots of tears. Songs on the radio speak to me. Constantly.
No, the bags aren’t packed. They are somewhat packed. I’m doing laundry. LOL. Who isn’t? Aren’t we always?
Saturday, I will finalize the ‘go’ and ‘not go’ stuff and get in a car to the airport.
The adventure begins.
Thank you – to my love, my family and my friends for your good wishes, your love and your support.
HERE WE GO!
