Reality sets in. I’m actually going to do this. I will be leaving on this trip. I purchased a one-way ticket to Mexico city. Return date: Not a clue.

While I’ve been preparing for this trip for many months now the reality of it is now just beginning to hit me. In the past this idea of leaving everything was something I would be doing. I was still gainfully employed (still am at the moment) and living a life not unlike anyone else. I’ve now taken a large step in changing that. There is a concrete date in which I will be leaving. August 18th.

I still have a lot I need to accomplish before that date. Sell the rest of my possessions, open bank accounts, make sure all contingency plans are in place. These are all small steps in preparation. I could still back out if I wanted to. The next major step will be the biggest step of all. I need to give my notice at work that I’m quitting. Once that’s done there really is no turning back. No more what-if’s. No more thinking of this as an abstract idea of something that will be done in the future.

This is happening. Each day steps are being taken. There is no turning back.
