April 2014, I had a few realizations. Things were shifting with my career and my living situation, causing me to re-evaluate life in general. All at once, in this almost euphoric mind exploding kind of way, I came to the conclusion that many people around the world come to when they are at a crossroads with life… it was time to LIVE. Time to see different places. Time to try different foods. Time to pick up foreign languages. Time to meet new people. Time to do all those things all the people who are more settled say they wish they had done while they were young. I wanted to be the person that could say.. I DID all that when I was young, YOU SHOULD TOO.
Quit both jobs. Sold off a majority of my possessions. Moved out of my apartment and into my car & Hit the ROAD.
In the past 8 months I have been to Belize, Hawaii, did a month road trip to every coastal town in California, Thailand, Cambodia, and finished off with a Caribbean cruise that stopped off in Grand Cayman, Cozumel, and Jamaica.
Over night I transformed from being a proud work-o-holic, to a person hungry to see what else is out there.
