I often get asked the question, how have you managed to do this?
My response is: I decided on what I wanted to do, and then went for it. Worked hard, saved up, and then DID it. I sometimes over-simplify it to show people that it is a very attainable reality!
Then when I’m alone and contemplating the choices I made to get to where I am today, I realize all of the hurdles I had to get over. Quitting a very comfortable, promising, stable life is a HUGE step.
But then other times I wonder if I am missing something. I realize it wasn’t easy to quit everything and leave, but was it that hard? Am I overlooking a big aspect of life? Am I missing the mark on something?
Oh, you know. Just the typical thoughts that run through your head when you spend too much time caught up in it. Or too much time on the interstate.
