The Road-trip I took was actually a quest; something I have known for years had to be done but which I also dreaded, pushing it on the future year after year. And now I did it! Though I had second thoughts when cars kept breaking down…
Life is a forward motion and we have to leave things behind, it’s as simple as that. The place I have lived and loved almost my entire life is one of them. Somebody else owns it now and it has become my past. I choose to go forward, not backwards and that means that I have to let it go. I will never go back there again and it is liberating. What surprised me was that it was easier than I thought. 🙂
I left for my trip with no expectations, my only focus was to make closure with my past. Along the way situations, people and places happened and I had the time to just be in it. Instead of going into the past, I found myself in the present and the past had lost its grip on me.
Letting go is empowering and it opens up for so many new and different possibilities, some (or most) of them completely unexpected. Life is truly an adventure.
