Un Billet Pour Paris... (A Ticket To Paris...)

It's official. I've made the decision.

[July 15th, 2009 to be exact!]


Sooooo....why is part of me feeling a little scared?

Wellllll, [I say to mySelf] it's because I am making the most important decision of my life to date! I have officially decided to follow my dream and go for it.

Jump...and the net will appear. [dammit it better!] <--- fear!

Everything about my decision just feels right. When I think of the move I feel excited and happy. I can't help but smile and do a lil' jig. *grin*

But, then there are moments where I feel a tad nervous about the whole thing. It usually happens at night...just as I'm getting ready for bed. And, I know, for a fact, that it is a fear of the unknown. I know that it is completely natural to have a bit of OMFG! swirling about in my head. I mean, really. I'm moving to a country I've never been to, I don't speak the language [but I am working some Rosetta Stone magic] and I know absolutely no one. I have no clue where I'm going to live or who's picking me up from the airport. Hell, I don't even have my ticket yet!


I do know everything is already lined up for me. I know that as I arrive closer and closer to the day, everything will be in place...all I have to do is get there. I've already done my part. I've said YES! to my dream. The rest is up to the Universe.

This is truly, wholly and unequivocally a leap of faith. I am standing at the edge of my Life, ready to jump!

Behind me, lies all the things I've ever known and all the things I've ever done. In front of me lies the greatest mystery. I have NO CLUE what is going to happen. All I know is that I stand before a blank canvas and I am holding the paint brush.



  1. that's wonderful! i think i can appreciate what you've written more because I'm going through a similar thing (moving from where i'm from with not a whole lot set in stone of what exactly is gonna happen when i do so...not to another country, though. i wish!). like you said, it just feels right.

    and i certainly can relate to that nervousness! it's just time, though, so i just push on through. i've basically sold all of my possessions in preparation.

    this is just what i needed to read this morning.

    i wish you all the best. :-D

  2. I know you will make it happen. My move to New York was very spur of the moment and no one was here to greet me. So I have a little idea of what you're talking about. I admire your courage. You only got 1 life!

  3. Yay Paris! Way to make it happen. I know you'll be A-OK!

  4. I am sooooo happy for you!

    what are you going to be doing over there fashion, art...?


Go on...say it...[!]
