First off, I got a tattoo, about a week ago. I have yet to write a separate post about this. I just thought I'd share that it happened, and I'm just about as surprised as you are that I actually went through with it. Again, I'll share more on this another time. My relationship with ink has been a funny one.
Once we're moved out, we'll be spending the night in Canmore, to rest, and take in one last dose of beautiful Alberta. It is one of my favorite places, with a lot of great memories involving change, personal growth, and self acceptance. Powerful, really. Once the recharge is complete, bright and early the next day, we hit the road and watch it all fade away in the rearview mirror, as we make our way toward our next adventure. Victoria! Eeek! I honestly never imagined this is where we'd be heading. I'm excited to have Breakfast with me, as my copilot. I think he's going to like where we're going.
Of course, I'm a little overwhelmed by the emotions involved. Some days I'm pumped, other days I'm absolutely terrified. It's part of the process of change. (Like how people get when they change the settings on Facebook, except that this is real life.) It's an incredible adjustment, so I'm allowing myself to get outside when it's needed, and let those feelings cycle. I'm easing myself back into my work, and picking up the pace, so we can afford this and continue to keep the dream alive.
I don't know what else to say, other than that where we are right now, is a good place to be. I feel so incredibly lucky.
What an adventure!
