Day 196: Not Ready for Home
Today I take the journey back home. This is a very sad day. I have never felt such a connection with the people and places I have been. I feel as though I am saying goodbye to my new home and family. This trip has been more than I could have ever imagined. I knew that it was going to be awesome, but I never expected it to be this life changing. I am actually writing this a little over a week later and I'm worried that I will lose this version of myself. I have never been so free and happy to just take life in. My lesson from this adventure is to let life happen. I am such a planner and it is okay to not have it all figured out. I feel like I can achieve any dream right now and I hope this feeling lasts forever. I'm worried that reality will creep in and ruin this freedom. I have to work to make this my reality, that this is who I am now. It breaks my heart to imagine going back to the restricted me. I guess the only thing I can ask right now is: what's next?
