Late Night Thoughts
This quote rings true tonight. There is an element of fear in leaving the U.S. – fear of discomfort, of having even less support, of not being able to cope. I know, deeper than these fears, that I am strong enough and that this journey is essential to understanding things about my future that will not be revealed in any other way. The status quo is stifling and oppressive in its very routine. To break free of whatever is holding me in this pattern I must step outside of comfort. Perhaps this is why I’ve always had wanderlust. I shake things up so that I can be shaken forward. I dread stagnation.
