What a start to the week... Receiving my Eurail tickets in the mail yesterday made the reality of how soon this trip is coming up set in. I spent a sizable amount of time planning my travels, but I also had other significant events occur yesterday. Closure is very important in certain circumstances, and I got the closure I needed in one important aspect of my life. I also experienced several bizarre coincidences that reminded me the reasons I am taking this path. I did not leave IBM and embark on this adventure for the simple purpose of an enjoyable experience. I am searching for that all important next step to do something significant with my life that will have a positive effect on much more than myself. I realize that to make a difference I must start small and realize that people can find their own unique ways to have that positive effect. "Be the change you want to see in the world" sums up what I am trying to do with my life and that quote is one that showed up three times yesterday in very significant places. Very bizarre but too real to brush it off. I continue to ponder in wonderment that I have not even left for this big journey yet, and already the wheels are turning. I feel more and more inspired and motivated everyday. I don't know where all of this is coming from, but I'm going to enjoy it and live for right now. As some of my dear friends reading this would say, "This is nooowww!" :)
