"...and I will wake up happy..."
I heard a quote this week that said, "A wise man does not let others create his future, rather he creates his own future", and oddly enough, I have done just that. So, word is out, I am packing it up and going to Australia. To some, this may seem impulsive but this has been a plan of mine for many years. For whatever reason, the desire has lived in me since childhood and I am finally going to see it through. For better or for worse, I am taking this show on the road on my own terms. If I love it there, I stay for a year. If I hate it, I have one heck of a vacation, pack it up, and start life over knowing that I, at least, tried. So, where do we stand as of today? Decision to go (check!), purchase plane ticket (check!), tell job #1 (check!), tell job #2 (check!), pack up apartment (1/2 of a check!), mentally prepare (still pending!). I finally feel like things are going well for me and all it took was me making the decision to change my life and my situation. A big thank you to everyone that offered their support in my crazy decision, it means a lot!
