taking off

My last day in America before I take off for Bali tomorrow. I think I've felt every emotion in the past week; from eagerness and excitement to anxiety and sadness. But now as I sit here lounging by the pool in San Francisco, I can't help but be amazed at how awesome my life is. I am so grateful to be exactly where I am in my life. I have no obligations, and so much adventure lying ahead of me. For as long as I can remember, I've been talking about this dream of mine to travel the world. Sometimes I doubted if I would ever take the plunge but the urge was too strong to ever deny. Now here I am, 24 hours away from hopping on a plane and living my dream!

Tomorrow I will board a plane with a backpack, a yoga mat, and no plans of when I will return. The first 6 weeks will be spent in Bali, living on a rice paddy and emerging myself in a 200hr intensive yoga teacher training. After that, I have absolutely. no. plans. Wherever I want to go and whatever I want to do, the world is my oyster!

The scariest part of this entire adventure is not that I'm going halfway across the world, or that I'm traveling alone. The scariest part for me is that I'm not going to have internet access for 30 days, and after that who knows? How am I supposed to check in on my friends and fam? No snapchat or instagram? I hate to admit that my life has become so absorbed with social media and less focused on what is going on around me in the current moment. As hard as it will be, I'm excited to detach myself from this online world and tune into the present.

I have so much to see and so much to learn. Can't wait to find out where this journey takes me!
