18 days until the adventure begins…. and EEEtheWorld kicks off in Thailand.
correction the adventure has already begun. THE ADVENTURE IS EVERYDAY.
Until takeoff I will be sharing my day-to-day prep for this journey, the tribulations which eased my decision to embark on this unexpected undertaking, and my fleeting moments of appreciation and sadness as I say goodbye to Chicago my home sweet home during the ‘meat of my twenties’. Chicago Goodbye Kisses Video
Friends, family, co-workers ask me daily, “Are you excited?”
The easy answer is… “Of course I cannot wait!”
Complicated honest answer is… “One day at a time. It’s really a checklist at this point to get me on the plane. I have not been able to imagine me beyond the moment UA9701 lifts off of the O’Hare tarmac….yet.”
My life has taken an extremely different turn than expected this summer: Ending a deeply intense relationship and quitting my reputed career path were not anticipated events- at least not now, all at once.
Nevertheless, I’ll take some credit for God’s royal belly laugh the past couple of months. “If you want to make God laugh, make a plan.”
I’m choosing to ACCEPT MY DECISIONS TO MOVE FORWARD and EMBRACE CHANGE because my spirit screams “YOLO!” and I am my happiest self as a SPONTANEOUS ADVENTURER.
I will EAT > I will EDUCATE > I will EXPLORE > my way around THE WORLD and I INVITE YOU THE EEEtheWorld with me.
I have confidence this freedom will bring me to an even brighter, wiser, wilder, more courageous self!!!
