A sigh of relief.

Last week, I finally let my manager and my director know that I will be moving to Italia at the end of August. Having worked at the same company for about 6 years now, I was pretty nervous to tell them about my move. I mean, it's not typical for someone to give their employer that much notice, but due to the nature of my work, it didn't feel right not to. I was pleasantly surprised at how well everyone took it and how extremely supportive they were about my decision. Now that the cat's out of the bag, I feel so extremely relieved!

Lately, I've been so busy packing, organizing, spring cleaning, moving, working, working out, planning,...ugh! Sometimes I get so absorbed by all the tasks I have to do, that I forget for a split second why the heck I'm doing all of this. Then, I remember and I get overwhelmed with feelings of excitement and joy that my stomach flips over and over. Maybe for some people, this is not really a big deal. But for someone like me, it is the biggest decision I've ever made in my adult life. It's the first and last thing I think about every morning and night. It is what is keeping me motivated and happy.

I know that 4 months seems so far away, but it really isn't. Especially since I'll be taking a college course the entire summer to prepare me for teaching, trying to complete my Italian lessons and spend time with my family & friends. The time will fly by. But no matter how many things I have to do before I leave, the one thing that never changes is how ready I am. I don't have one doubt in my mind. It truly is a great feeling to know, in your gut, when something is right. When you feel 100% confident about what you want in life and secure with your decisions, it can't get better than that. I realized that when you are confident in the decisions that you make, the people around you can only be supportive. Because at the end of the day, they just want to see you happy....and if things don't work out for me? Ah, c'est la vie! Life goes on.
