|My failed attempt at a graceful leap during our 2009 Donsol trip.|
Well, I finally did it.
I took a risk and leaped.
The place where I'm about to land is not as far as I originally intended to (or still intending to) but it's a start. What was that saying by Christopher Columbus again? You'll never cross the ocean unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore. Let's just say the shore ain't that far away from where I'm going but at least I've already removed my anchor.
I know, I know, I'm talking in circles again. I have a knack for that haha.
Bottom line is, a big change in my life is about to take place. But not without the birth pains. I've been sleepless for three weeks now--learning the ropes, acclimatizing myself to the new environment. (No time for errands, to update my Project365, even to bloghop!) But hey, I ain't complaining (Well, sometimes I do rant haha but generally, I'm grateful). And there's also that nostalgia bit. It's hard to leave something you've been accustomed to for years. There's a reason why they call it the "comfort zone" you know. And while the friends you've made will still be around, it's still different when you see and talk to them on a daily basis.
NEVERTHELESS, I'm facing this change head on. Because this might just be the very thing that will encourage me to take bigger leaps in the future.
Do I hear Singapura? Maybe. We never know :)
