“We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we’re curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.”
For the past year or two, I have felt really antsy in my life. I have had a hard time setting roots and committing myself here in New York. About two years ago, I was laid off from my job, and as I was telling a friend the other day, after that I think I just stopped trying to “make it” in NYC. It was not until I returned from India that my need to leave became more than uncomfortable. The meditation that I do focuses on removing samskaras from your heart and when I came home, I could not ignore what my heart was telling me anymore. It was time to go.
So, my boyfriend and I decided to move all our stuff and spend some time in Cleveland, Ohio and then we are off to travel. We both have one way tickets to New Zealand in June and we plan on taking it from there.
I was just thinking back to this post I wrote about traveling around the world. It kind of gives me chills because I am actually going to do that. Though we’re leaving NYC on Tuesday, we aren’t starting our trip for another month. We are in the process of getting rid of most of our things and scaling down the amount we take with us.
I never anticipated feeling so many emotions leaving New York City, but in my heart I know it is the right thing to do. I am excited, scared, anxious, proud, happy – the list goes on and on. This is definitely not goodbye New York, but more like, check ya later.
