I’m just leaving…
For the first time in my life I feel truly alone, lonely and perhaps a bit apprehensive about my upcoming journey. Landing in a strange place and not knowing a soul isn’t a new experience for me but the timing for such foolery isn’t ideal. Packing up the last bits of my life I find remnants of this and that, now only snippets of time gone by. I know its always darkest before the dawn so I try and squash all my uneasy feelings and search for the light knowing full well that without stepping off the cliff there is no chance that a net will appear.
As scary as it all seems on this cold rainy day I know that letting fear guide my life would be my downfall. Living a fear based life is living a life doomed to medeocrity. One by one I pack my fears with my small pile of personal possessions and prepare to take them on this journey with me. I will slowly and sytematically discard them with each new milestone achieved and hopefully some day very soon I will look back and laugh at how scared I really am today.
