Well, there’s no way around it.
Everyone around me is moving.
No literally…it feels like everyone.
Los Angeles. Philly. Tennessee. Portland. Hawaii.
The list goes on and on and on.
I can’t help but feel a little bit antsy. After all, it is my dream to travel the world. Shoot, I want to make that dream my life. I want it to be my full time job.
I think I’ve posted about this subject before…the subject of being antsy. I think I touched on it during an earlier post, but I’m coming back to it now.
I keep reminding myself that everything will happen at just the right time, just as it’s supposed to. Everything will (and always does) fall into place.
It’s not on my time. It’s on God’s time.
Though I am antsy to get out (I have a trip planned every month until October), and my friends and I find the time to talk about our dreams at least once every conversation (oh, hello, mid-20’s!), it occurred to me today that this ‘resting/waiting’ period in my life is not insignificant in the least bit. I am not just sitting around (…okay, that’s nearly impossible for me to do at any time in any place). Things are happening.
I have been wanting to sit down these past few weeks to make a list of what I have going on in my life. Since there is always so much, I felt it necessary to see it all on paper (or my favorite dry erase board). I think this is the time where I sit with what’s in my life and narrow everything down. Do I really need to be focusing on so many things at once? Or can I teach myself how to focus on a few things and really take the time to put my heart and soul into it?
Opportunities keep popping up, and now’s the time to wake up and realize the truth within myself. What am I here for? What is my purpose? What skills can I work on during this ‘resting’ period that will help me better myself and bring me closer to my dreams?
So…though I watch my friends fly/drive away (with saddened/proud eyes and hopeful thoughts of seeing them again real soon), I know that this is where I need to be. This is my place, right now. This is where my lessons are.
And soon, the time will come where it will be my turn. But for now I will soak up the moments that I have here.
Everything is significant.
