I can’t believe that Rachel and I leave for our road trip adventure Thursday! I feel such a mix of emotions! I am BEYOND excited to finally tackle this dream, explore America, have an adventure, learn, eat and dive into the unknown and but I also feel anxious because I don’t know what to expect and that always gets me wound up. Isn’t it strange how excitement and fear can sometimes be so closely intertwined?
I was talking to Ali yesterday and she reminded me that the inspiration for taking this trip was to jump into the unknown, feel free, unrestricted and in the moment.
Now that the trip is so close I realize that the very thing I crave the most is starting to make me feel uncomfortable.
I crave adventure but I feel conflicted about taking the time from my everyday life to seek it and my brain is trying very hard to fight this impeding adventure.
I’m sure that once Rachel and I get in the car at 5am on Thursday morning, with coffees in hand and huge grins on our faces, that none of the concerns I feel now will even matter.
It will only be us and the open road at that point.
That image makes me smile.
Just as I was contemplating all of this, Rachel sent me this video…a sign I think.
It’s a must watch and a good reminder for us all!
