I must admit, departing Amsterdam was a mixed bag of the feels. Excitement and sadness, a familiar combination for me.
Year 25 was the best year of my life. I am grateful for everything and it really catapulted me into a new realm of self-development and understanding.
This is why Year 26 takes a plunge deeper into the unknown. I am excited for what’s to come, and ultimately where I end up. I will be documenting many things, because I think I will learn and experience an entirely new way of life.
Leaving my job, my friends, my routine, my stability, my paycheque – I understand the weight and risk of that. However, I needed to do this, because I trust my instincts and my instincts are leading me this way.
So, leaving Amsterdam with only a backpack and the name of an address – wow that was sobering. I was really questioning what I would do if I walked in to meet the person who I made my arrangement with, and they said he didn’t exist. Now that would have been a good laugh.
However, He was real – that’s great.
It still feels surreal – and I still think about work.
Its part of the process.
So far its been my first night and day in Krakow, Poland. Last night I went out for a Pub Crawl, and today I joined a gym. So I suppose you could say I’m maintaining some level of normalcy.
I need more time to let the gravity of everything sink in.
But, I feel good. So that’s whats up for now.
