Today is the day!

Today is your day! You’re off to Great Places! You’re off and away!

You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose. You’re own your own. And you know what you know.  And YOU are the girl who’ll decide where to go.  Dr. Suess
IMG_0827It’s here! I am leaving this evening, heading straight to Germany as my first stop. Ummm I mean there’s a strike on Lufthansa so I’ve been rebooked and I’m flying British airways to London then to Frankfurt.

Now that I am done with work, moved out of my house, and sitting at the airport, I have no regrets, none, zilch.  I have only thought about my job twice since I left about three weeks ago and I didn’t even think about work, it was the the people I thought about.  I love not working so much I am going to try to never do it again.  How?  We will find out together as my life unfolds.

The day came and went, closing on my house.  It was one of the happiest days of my life, I was so nervous up until the day of but I left feeling empowered and free.

None of this was luck or happenstance, it was a huge decision, months of planning and preparing.   Now that I have paired my life down to a carry-on, a purse, and a laptop, I am ready to see the world and live my life the way I have always wanted.
Thank you to everyone who supported me all along the way.

Tomorrow I will wake up in London, go to sleep in Germany, and know that I have arrived at my life.
