I’m leaving for Peru in lower than two weeks and because the day of my last departure attracts nearer, I’m beginning to notice simply how snug I’m right here at residence. I adore it right here really, so it feels a bit unusual (and scary) to be packing up and making ready to go away.
The benefit to leaving, nonetheless, is that with a departure date already set in stone, I now notice (greater than ever) that my time right here is treasured. And since I do know I’ll be leaving quickly, I appear to understand the little issues I’ve RIGHT NOW all that rather more.
That’s why, in moments like this, simply days earlier than leaving one location and heading off to a different, I begin to notice simply how good I’ve obtained it. I get up within the morning realizing that my time right here is restricted and helpful; I smile on my method to the grocery store, loving each second of the chilly air blowing on my face; And I do my finest to recollect the best way issues look, really feel and odor as I am going about my day.
Figuring out that my time right here is working out makes me recognize the issues I’ve obtained proper now, as a result of I do know that someday quickly I’ll need to muster up the braveness to pack my luggage, lock the entrance door and depart the whole lot I do know behind.
One in all journey’s largest advantages is studying to be PRESENT – to be completely absorbed within the moments you might be residing at this cut-off date.
There’s no higher reminder of this than these previous couple of days earlier than you permit one location in preparation for one more.
So, as I am going about my previous couple of days right here at residence earlier than flying off to Peru on a 6-month bicycle touring journey, right here is my reminder to you:
Irrespective of the place you might be (whether or not you might be at residence, on the highway, or someplace in between) be taught to understand the whole lot you’ve obtained. Even the little issues.
