the people giving me confidence to come back

I think at this point in my life, most people who know me, know that I love to travel. I love a good adventure. I live for fueling my wanderlust with as many new experiences as possible. That is the life I have created for myself over past few years.

Two and a half years ago I needed to be free and completely alone in a new place. I needed to spontaneously create a beautiful mess of my life.

I have loved nothing more than to run, to be free, to cry and laugh on my own.

I fell in love with unknowns of not knowing where I would wake up in the morning and not knowing who would cross my path.

Six months ago I needed to abandon that life . Not because I didn’t love it, but because my gut told me a beautiful journey was waiting.

Meeting strangers who have become family has shaped me into the person I am now.

But I didn’t realize until recently that it was my own family that I was turning into strangers.

I came home to fall in love.

In many different ways.

I needed to remind myself what it means to be loved and what it means to love.

Today, it is time for me to leave again. But I leave in a different way this time. I leave family, friends, my home and new loves. But I leave in a different way. I leave with a different type of confidence that my 22 year old self had.

Today, I cling onto that same confidence that everything will work out the way it is supposed to.

However, I also leave with a confidence that I will be back.

That is something I have never had before.

And I have so much love to come back to.
