My plate is full.

I'm taking six days off to go back home. I have this thing to do that might mean changing my nationality.

Someone I know has made me an offer that I would be stupid to refuse. That might mean changing my address. To a different country. Permanently.

Someone I used to know was in my dream a couple of nights ago. But, for the first time, I was not aching when I woke up. That might mean something. Hopefully.

And even though I'm excited about finally moving (forward or backward, I do not know nor care), there is a certain sense of sadness at the idea of leaving behind the life and people that I am accustomed to.

“All changes, even the most longed for, have their melancholy; for what we leave behind us is a part of ourselves; we must die to one life before we can enter another.”

- Anatole France

Congrats ! So i guess you gonna say a lot of eh ! eh ?

If that thing is what you want, then by all means.. congratulations and wish you all the best. If it is what you think you want, then make sure you want it, because there will be no going back, will there?

I believe, in order to move forward, little steps are not enough, sometimes you need to leap, jump, and take the risk of slipping.

think of the potential for adventure when and if you decide to take that leap.

that alone should make it a worth while endeavor.

and dont worry about the mistakes at all,... some of lifes best adventures come when the shit hits the fan.

happy trails to you :D

what a beatiful way to describe change

Thank you, Skunk. I'm all for taking mad risks and all ... but I'm also going to be leaving behind a lot that means a lot to me. Oh well :D

Joud, I'm hoping the change itself will be as beautiful as that description.
