Counting Down Daze

Over the past week I have had a ridicules amount of people say, "So when do you leave?!"
And every time I shock myself a little by answering, "Next month!!"
Because really, reality just continues to baffel me.
I still can't believe that I am really moving to Florida.
Next month.
Goodness it's a bit overwhelming.
And VERY exciting.
But just saying the words out loud, saying, "In one month I won't live here anymore."
It kind of forces me to stare reality in the eyes.
Forces me to wake up and smell the coffee.
Or tea, since I'm not much of a coffee person.
In one month I'll start a crazy journey that will test me...
that will make me stronger...
that will scare me...
that will be filled with lessons...
that will take me way beyond my comfort zone.
And you know what?
I am completely stoked about this smack of reality that is going to take to the Sunshine State.
If you notice a dazed expressions on my face, it's just because I'm still a little amazed that this is all happening.
But believe me, I'm so excited and scared and completely loving this journey that I'm on.

Courage is doing what you're afraid to do. There can be no courage unless you're scared.
