Nothing in my life has ever felt so wrong. I really felt like I wasn't supposed to be on that plane- that I belonged in Italia. I have never been more at peace, more filled with joy, happiness, love, and light, than when I was in Italia. My soul was at home and all was well in my world during my trip. It was on that plane ride back to the United States that I made a very important promise to myself. I am going to do whatever it takes to make sure that I end up back in Italia next summer. I am going to move to Italy and work there. While I live in Europe, I'll to travel to other countries, as well. My journey isn't over. It's a work in progress and I couldn't be more excited about what my journey has in store for me in the future.
I wish the same for all of my young, passionate followers. Get out into the world and never tell yourself it's impossible. The only thing holding you back is yourself! When I made the decision to book my trip, I didn't have a job and I hardly had just enough money for the trip. That little voice told me I had to take a leap of faith and so, I did. Sure enough, everything fell into place shortly after I followed my heart.
I miss Italy more and more with each day that passes. It's a great incentive for me to get the ball rolling on this next chapter of my life- living, working, and traveling abroad...sensitively.
