Life in Motion..
I guess it's about that time. I feel like I've made a little progress here. My efforts, however, have been somewhat truncated by an opportunity that I am just not at liberty to ignore at the moment. It's gonna put me back on the streets a little sooner than I would like. A setback that I'm not really looking forward to, but that is not something I can focus on right now. I've done this countless times before but for some reason it still hasn't gotten any easier. Maybe as I get older my desire to find a home gets stronger. Maybe I'm just getting tired. Or maybe, even after so many years, I still haven't accepted the fact that there is no home. Whatever the reason, it only serves to further solidify Rule #1 of the Nomad Code..never get too attached. You only makes it more difficult on yourself when it's time to let go. Those plans are just going to have to wait, I've got to keep it moving. Shifting gears, entering a new mindset, forcing myself to adapt, and most of all being able to do it within a moments notice with no idea what I'm going to do or how it's going to turn out; These are the key elements that have forged me into the person that I am. It can be a little scary at times, but sometimes you just have to make it up as you go. Last night I could barely sleep. I kept trying to play different scenarious in my head over and over in an attempt to predict what's in store for me, but the truth is it'll never happen because life is just too unpredictable. So all I can really do at this point is lean in and hope for the best. It's time to pack this bag and migrate..Let's go to San Diego.
