I felt myself changing a year ago. But I couldn’t quite describe the shift. Now that I have had time to analyze it…I understand. I’ve grown. Not because I live overseas, or because I’ve traveled to more countries, but because I’ve experienced more life. More laughter, more tears, more pain, more joy. Just more. I have had the support to take large leaps in life. Leaps that seem scary to me, sometimes I don’t realize I have jumped until I’m mid-air and I have no choice but to fall…so I soar. Slowly I drift through life…but I drift with purpose. It’s weird. I have a sense of calm because I know everything will be alright. I control everything…but I also control nothing. This is my journey.
