Ready To Go

I am finally ready to go. I have quit the job, sold the stuff, and said goodbyes. I am leaving in less than a week. My sister Trina will be driving me down to Calgary to catch my flight. I am still not really nervous but I get emotional some days thinking about what will come of all this. Everything in the planning for this trip has come so easily which just reminds me that I am on the right path. I hope to get any last minute errands done this week. I am still in search of the perfect shoe.

One thing that has been pretty universal when I talk to people about what I am doing is how “brave” I am. I don’t feel particularly brave. In fact, I think it would take more guts to stay here and try to survive in this rat race when it is so obvious that I am meant to be somewhere else right now.
