My Journey Home

TOUR

“Life is a journey, not a destination” –Ralph Waldo Emerson

My journey home starts today. I will finally board my flight back to New York. It has been quite a ride. Never have I experienced a full range of emotions so often and sudden that I wonder how the I made it through. I have learned so much about myself during the time I have wandered that I can now confidently face the future.

The reason why I left was simple. I wanted to find myself. I wanted to find out what I am capable of and I cannot do that if I always had a support system by my side. I know most people did not understand why I had to leave. It is for this reason I am in awe as to why people can love someone as flawed as me.

The road was long and cold and I couldn’t have survived what I did if I had no intention of coming back. My family and friends kept me sane. I knew I had to be better than what I was before. I had to earn a second chance.

I am now coming home. It has been a long year. I cannot express my deepest gratitude for the support through the toughest times of my life.

I am coming home.


This post was inspired by Writing 101’s Day 18: A map as your muse. I wasn’t able to do it during that day thanks to life but I found awesome inspiration in the book I just finished reading called The Geography of You and Me by Jennifer E. Smith. I want to write a proper book review for it so I won’t spoil much and will keep it short by saying that the book is about long distance almost relationships. Talk about complicated!

the geography of you and me

It feels so good to be inspired. I hope everyone is having an awesome day! 🙂
