Next big adventure begins… Tonight!
When I reflect back on my life journey thus far, I often have to pinch myself to remind myself it is all real… That it is all real because I MADE it happen. As fearful as I have felt to take some of the seemingly blind leaps I have taken, my bigger fear has always resided in NOT taking those leaps.. Of living a life and then wondering “Where did it go? What did I do? Why was I so afraid?” I think we are all born with a seed of courage. The more we water it, the more it grows into something to marvel at, something that begins to take on a life of its own and carve the path for us. And we have to remind ourselves that we alone are responsible for our choices. Not the outcome, but the choices. My life looks the way it does because it reflects my choices- everything I love, everything I am passionate about, and every risk I have taken.
Tonight I begin my next big adventure- I’ll be boarding a plane on a one-way ticket to Taipei! Truth be told, Asia screwed me up many years ago. Since my time spent living in Bangkok, I have always fantasized about going back to that side of the world to live and work for a little while. Two weeks ago I landed a job I had been after, and tonight I go!
Each time I embark on a new adventure, my excitement is always mixed with some bittersweetness. However, I can’t help but feel this is exactly where I’m supposed to be, exactly where I have chosen to be. I feel excited, nervous, and more than anything… Courageous & Blessed.
