A few months ago, I felt stuck. Do you remember my posts? I was in a job I hated, and my world seemed dreary and small.
It's funny how filling out a few forms can wildly change your circumstance. In the past month, I've filled out all the forms needed for a visa, and now I'm just waiting for the approval to pack up and move to the United Kingdom. If everything goes smoothly, I'll be there in just over a month. Filling out those forms helped realize the power I have to change my life if I so choose. With a pen and a smile, I've signed away for a new life.
I feel empowered.
Often times when I'm feeling stagnant, I find I'm spending too much time on the couch and not enough time in the world. Today, I got in the car for what was supposed to be just a grocery trip, but just kept driving instead. The wind was just right, and Death Cab for Cutie sang to me as I cruised by the bay. I stopped by the airport and watched the planes fly over my head, thinking about all the possibilities...
In a month, instead of taking off in my car, I'll be on a jet plane--still trying to seize all those possibilities. Because there's too much of the world to see to stay on that damn couch.
