A slight feeling of anxiety is just barely beginning to creep in... not anxiety exactly, but the sense of the enormity of this 'thing' ... I mean HOLY SHIT, I'm really doing this! ... I'm not just stepping out of my comfort zone, I'm base jumping off a really tall building (or maybe a short one, ha!) out of it ... AND in this scenario I don't have a parachute, but am wearing one of those crazy flying squirrel suits....
That being said, I am extremely well-traveled... this is not my first rodeo ;-) ....and you'd think being a Cancer, all this travel and change might have me totally freaked, but traveling really feeds me and I have always been able to quickly nestle in wherever I am. The part where I'm out of my comfort zone is more the fact that I'm flying completely solo, I've always traveled with family, friends, or a group of some kind ... that and the uncertainty.... not REALLY knowing anything other than where I'm going. But ALL that is exactly why I'm doing this! I need to shake up my life!! I don't know anything about what or who is waiting for me on this trip. I don't know what my life will look like upon my return. All I know, all I've ever known since reading Eat, Pray, Love is that I HAVE to go.
So 60 days till the BIG bon voyage.... but only 14 till Rina and I leave for the dance festival in Guatemala!! WOO HOO!!!! ... and more importantly, only 15 till I turn 31!! Already this 'new trip around the sun' (as my mother likes to say) is turning out to be one very magical mystery tour :-)
Also, I just might have someone who wants to stay in my place.... fingers crossed! But please keep your ears open for other leads in case this doesn't work out.
