You know, a lot of people ask me why I travel so much. Or what it is about travelling that gets me so excited. I guess the best explanation or answer that I can provide to those type of questions would be that for me, going to new places and experiencing new things is quite exciting. That’s typically my goal–to travel for the experience. And in turn, those experiences provide me with a clear head. It’s my mental therapy while I’m able to soak in different cultures.
Speaking of travelling, I took a quick trip to Dallas to see my brother, visited Magnolia Farms in Waco, and had the best grilled cheese sandwiches I could have ever asked for. I think ultimately, Texas is the place that I’d like to build my dream home before I move to some remote town up north and retire on a farm or unleash my inner nomad and live life in different places. (Yes, really.)
But being somewhere other than my place of normalcy allows me to relax and not worry about all that’s to come. It gives me the opportunity to calm myself and figure things out if there’s anything that’s plaguing me. The last few weeks have been heavy for me and my recent trip to visit my brother in Texas gave me some time to kinda sort things out. But not only for sorting, but to acquire some courage to get through all that was coming.
This week and last week has been filled with interviews. I finally figured out what I want to be when I grow up. And with figuring that out, I also figured out all it would take to reach that goal and started putting things in motion and putting myself back out on the market. My current job is still fulfilling, but right now, I’m viewing it as preparation for the next step that I want to take.
The nights have been long but all have produced some pretty interesting results that I’m quite excited about. Some things are even happening overnight. I’m just thankful that all of the hard work that I’ve put in over the years is being recognized and speaks before I even have to. That’s a wonderful feeling.
