Next Step Taken

Yesterday evening I booked my ONE WAY flight to Ontario where I will start the first leg of my RTW trip. I will spend some time in the town I grew up in (Thunder Bay) visiting with my parents, one of my dearest and closest friends and  extended family and friends. It is a great start to this amazing time I have ahead of me. I think it has taken me all of this 24 hour period to have it sink in that I am doing this. I imagined that when I gave my notice at work it would all start changing. Ends up it is the booking of the flight plus a day that has my heart soaring a bit higher and my imagination viewing the world as it is in my mind. As the day has progressed my soul has been lifting. I have thought much of my other best friends right here in Greater Vancouver. Of my sister and how a part of this trip will be with her. And then to the amount of things I need to do (gulp!). Stress that I have not even saved nearly the amount of money I had hoped to. Excitement that I will go anyway. As my friend Suzy B once said (along these lines) that you can not wait until you have enough money to live life because you never will so do it anyway and be grateful for what you have and can do. She told me that years and years ago. It has stuck with me ever since. I also see that now I am going to be selfish. I am focusing primarily on myself and this trip. I am by nature, job and choice a caretaker (even my personality type on the Myers-Briggs test is a “caregiver” ESFJ). Of course I am selfish now and again (probably more in the thoughts of my friends – LOL) but now I am truly going to focus on this trip, ask opinions, change my mind of where to go a million times and talk non-stop. The excitement is starting to sink in! Be warned my good friends, be warned. 😛
