“Mission from the Universe” Part 7: I Go!

go!

It sounds like something my 2-year-old nephew or Ivan Drago from Rocky IV would say.

It is time.

Tomorrow evening I will be walking onto a United plane in New Jersey, and after about 7 hours or so, walking off in Dublin, Ireland.

I’m in awe that I had the courage to make this trip idea a reality. I’m actually doing it!

I am open.

I expect nothing.

I will be mindful and present and let life happen as it should.

I will treasure each footstep and everything I see.

I will watch the sun rise and set in a new land.

As suggested by John Keating in Dead Poets Society, I am doing something I consider extraordinary.

Most importantly,

I seize the day.

Thank you for reading, for listening, and for supporting my journey. I am immensely grateful for the loving support of my husband, family, and friends who have had to listen to be jabber on for months now about my mission from the universe. Most of all, a huge thank you to my travel partner in crime, my dear friend for over 20 years now, who is accompanying me on this adventure.

As I will be focusing on LIFE and LIVING while in Dublin, I do not plan to post here on SoulSEAker until I return. I will most likely post a few photographs to my Facebook and Instagram pages only, depending on access to technology. If you are interested, please follow me there for updates (links below).

The time is here.

Let’s do this!

Something to SEA: Rainy Day Clicks for 11/7/2015

20151107 Beach Photo

Good morning friends!  The weather here along the Jersey Shore has NOT been November-like so far, and I am not complaining as I’d hold onto summer forever, if it was possible.  The leaves, though, are beautiful and are nearing the end of their color-explosion cycle, and in just days, the trees will be bare.  We are off to a friend’s wedding in Pennsylvania today, and I’m excited to see a new and different place. With the forecast for rain, I’m hoping that this week’s roundup of interesting sites will be a good diversion for you.  Hope you enjoy!

THANK YOU.
