There are just 34 days before we take off on this journey and I don’t know what to think about it!
It seems like the trip is such a long time from now, and yet, when I think about everything I need to do to prepare, it feels like I am almost out of time! Actually, maybe it’s not that I don’t know what to think, but that I have too much to think about.
For an adventure like this one, most of my thoughts revolve around whether or not I will actually be able to do this trip. There are things to consider – work, time, money, the path, hotels, the bike, my health…. Fortunately, I have learned a little something over the years, and that is that everything happens as it is supposed to, I just need to do my best and the rest will fall into place. Now, that doesn’t necessarily mean it will fall into the place I want it to, but that’s all part of the lesson.
When I don’t really know what to think, I often start focusing on what I am grateful for, as that helps calm my fears. In this case, right now, I am grateful for my friend, Dolores, and her invitation to make this journey with her. We haven’t known each other very long, which would normally make me very uncomfortable, but there was an instant connection when we met, and I trust the universe that this is exactly what I/we are supposed to be doing right now. I am also grateful for my partner, Donna, who may not understand what the hell I am doing right now, but she doesn’t want to stop me.
What do you think? Would you like to take this motorcycle journey, or are you more interested in your own “vision quest” right now? What is stopping you?
