One year ago I asked myself, "What have you always wanted to do but never given yourself permission for?" My inner voice came roaring through and said, "To live and work overseas for an extended period of time.
Then I asked myself. "Why haven’t you done it?" I realized all the excuses—"It’s not the right time," "It will cost a lot of money," "I don’t have anyone to travel with"—were all just fear-based reactions keeping me from what I really wanted.
I had a choice to go forth and do what was in my heart—to leave it all behind in search of more. I was looking for more joy, more wonder, more awe.
So I packed all the belongings that could fit into two slightly worn suitcases and headed out to the world with a one-way ticket to Morocco.
