We are back in NYC. Oh, it always feels so, so good coming "home" here. Though this could be one of the last "coming home to NYC" moments in awhile as we're heading to Ecuador pretty soon. This made me especially delighted we were greeted last night by a freaking awesome poetry slam on the subway.
After traveling and doing 4 events in the last few weeks, you can see that we were pretty exhausted yesterday on the "Vermonter" Amtrak train. I'm gathering photos and can't wait to tell you more about our event in Vermont. It was extraordinary and quite honestly, we didn't want it to end.
At this moment I'm just feeling really, really grateful for our new set-up. You know, not having jobs (!) and all. There have been moments that have felt uncomfortable as we were starting a life that is SOOO different than pretty much everybody we know. Usually life is all about security, security, security and that seems to keep us GLUED to jobs and things and our future and our surroundings. But it's awesome to step away from that and take a leap towards what we really love doing. So far, I don't regret taking this leap one bit. Just the first month of this journey has brought ridiculous amounts of freedom, opportunities, connections, flexibility, togetherness, renewed passion for our endeavors, and just breathing room. I'm starting to feel really, really good about all that we have ahead.
And now I need to go edit my belongings some more. I decided to take even less to Ecuador. We were planning on taking 8 suitcases, but I'm hoping to reduce that even more.
Have a wonderful day,
Dear readers, do you feel glued down? Do you dream of taking a leap? Any inspiring stories out there from people who have taken a leap to get closer to living your dream?
