After talking and talking about my dream for a while now, I finally pulled the trigger.
Let me explain.
I have been wanting to make this happen for a while now and I talk about it all the time, but it terrifies me to actually sell everything, leave my apartment, quit my job, and hit the road. So I have been talking a lot but kind of holding myself back.
This weekend I had enough, time to make my dream a reality.
My sister and niece came over this weekend and we went through everything and started taking pictures, setting prices and posting online to sell. I created a web page so I can have everything posted in one place so it’s easier to just share a link to Facebook, Craigslist and anywhere else.
After a couple hours we were sitting there chatting and I had a moment of panic. It was like, oh shit this is real. I got a little teary eyed and said to my sister “what if I sell everything I own and still don’t have enough to hit the road?” Well my niece said, without hesitation, “don’t worry auntie, we’ll get you on the road’. Seriously, she’s nine and she’s comforting me even though she want’s nothing to do with me leaving. She just says she doesn’t like it but she understands, I need to follow my dreams. Damn I love that kid, too smart for her own good.
So I finally did it, I finally made it real!!!!! I put it out to the world and there is no going back now. I don’t want to go back, I want to go forward and experience everything this country and life has to offer.
One of my friends saw my post this morning on FB and shared this meme with me, I thought it was worthy to share because it’s so perfect.
I am so fortunate to have such amazing friends and family. Not one has told me that I am completely out of my mind, or at least not to my face.
