So today I began the packing process. I went through all of my drawers, did laundry, and laid everything out on my bed. Now it’s all a matter of deciding what to put in my suitcases. I’m supposed to take all 12+ pairs of my shoes with me…right?
Now I’ve traveled a lot in my life. By the time I reach Barcelona, I will have been to 10 different countries, yet I still haven’t mastered this whole packing thing!! I expect to be travelling around Europe on the weekends, so hopefully I’ll learn something about packing light!
The closer I get, the more anxious, excited, sad, happy, and hesistant I feel. It sure is a mixture of emotions! I found a quote by Steve Jobs that really helped me feel better though:
“Again, you can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something – your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.” ~ Steve Jobs
To me, this quote means that although I might be nervous and unsure about what lies ahead for me, not only in Barcelona but also in life, that there is a reason things will end up the way they will. It also gives me hope that I will be prepared. I’ve practically been training for this moment my whole life!
I’ve always had a passion for living freely, relentless curiosity, as well as a knack for discovering new things. It’s all falling into place now as I embark on this life changing journey. Let’s do this!
