I’ve been busy with so many things in the past couple of days to prepare for the change that’s about to happen in my life. I’ve been so busy that I haven’t even had the time to feel excited about it. Yeah, I tell people that I’m excited but I’ve never really felt it, not just yet. You know that feeling of excitement when your intestines are doing somersaults which would make you want to throw up? Yeah, I’ve never had that yet. I feel like I was more excited when we were going to Greece for our holiday than this really big change that’s bound to happen to us in a few weeks time.
Not being a pessimist here but I don’t think I will ever feel extremely excited about it until it actually happens. You know why? Because it’s just too good to be true, at least for me. Maybe I’m still in that stage of disbelief. Yeah, I’ve imagined myself to be in that place but in my head it just sounded cool for it to happen to me. I know though that it’s too far-fetched for a small town girl like me but suddenly, here I am – preparing for that big change!
I must have done something good in the past to be blessed with an opportunity like this. I’ve never considered myself lucky but with what’s bound to happen for me in the future, I think I’m one of the luckiest people alive right about now.
I’m not going to end this random rant with some inspirational quotes about chasing your dreams or following that proverbial light because in life, I’m more of a realist. Whatever happens to you is a combination of being at the right place, at the right time and a huge amount of luck. If one of those is missing then no matter how hard you try, you will never get it. And yeah, you can throw perseverance in there too because you’d need a lot of that to try and try and try until all those things are laid out in front of you and the only thing you need to do to make it happen is to jump in and claim it!
What we’re doing is a big risk but I’d take that risk anytime of the day if that means living one of my far-fetched dreams.
Wondering wtf you just read? Yeah, me too.
P.S. The photo at the beginning of the post has nothing to do with the post itself. I just put it there because it’s pretty.
