  • Change is thick in the air, I can't quite see through it.

    In a few hours I leave the country I have called home for 6 years. The last months have been closing this chapter. With mixed emotions. My job, home & relationship are boxed away. All were things that needed to change. Bittersweet. Only, I'm not running this time. My perspective has changed. Friends have become extended family. The world has become a smaller place. I feel lucky to live now. I can say; 'see you later' instead. I am realizing the end I was looking for is the beginning. Full of tears, I am trying to let go of my fears. The lump in my throat won't go away yet. Making these decisions was the hardest thing I've done. Though as soon as I say it.. also probably the best choice I could have made.

    I won't have a home for a while and I don't know which direction I will take. For the next month I will visit friends & family across the world, have conversations and continue the adventure to find next.

    The strangest thing has happened, I have never felt this free.
