Tomorrow I fly out to Edinburgh to start a new chapter in my
life. These past few weeks have been so odd. I actually haven't had a
lot of time to think about how different my life is about to become...
I've been dragging my feet on a few things...weird things like canceling my Netflix subscription and Amazon Prime (although I did need to finish watching LOST on Amazon...priorities, you know?)
I finally canceled my internet...which is good since I no longer have an apartment :)
On the whole I've been in a bit of a fog. Pushing through all the essential things like packing and moving...glossing over things like goodbyes...
That's been the toughest thing...although, real friends are always together in Spirit.
Lunch with the gang was nice. Good friends...people I have seen every day for 11 years. I've spent more time with them than my family! I will miss seeing their faces every day but feel so lucky to have had all that time and to have them in my life (Facebook is a wonderful thing).
After lunch and dropping off my cable modem I watched the series finale of LOST. Talk about an emotional way to spend an afternoon! But such a beautiful, quiet message (I thought so, anyway). I won't spoil if you aren't familiar. If you are you know that Love and togetherness were a big theme.
I chased that with one final dinner at St. Andrews with Sara.
Every moment that passes frees me up for the next part of my journey. I can feel it.
There is so much joy bubbling up inside of me now that I am starting to re-focus my energy on my actual trip, but I also want to honor everything that I've done to get me to this place. All the speed bumps and "obstacles."
As Sara reminded me last night...I've survived living here in New York. Not a small accomplishment. It is without a doubt a difficult place to succeed and somewhere a lot of folks would kill to experience.
And I made it here.
And you know what the song says :)
