You know the feeling in your gut when you know you are meant to do something? The dizzying butterflies, the uncontrollable tears of joy, and the determination to make it work n’importe quoi?
I didn’t know that feeling until this year (and I have been just dyyying to spill). Back in New Orleans, Marcella read a quote from Catherine of Siena that stuck with me (and that I later featured in my blog post): “Be who God meant you to be and you will set the world on fire.” Doesn’t that just give you goosebumps?
About a year ago, I began to wonder if I had gotten too comfortable with my salary, 401k and health insurance. I realized that if I wanted to make a leap, I needed to do it now. I have the rest of my life to sit behind a desk–now is the time for butterflies. Now is the time to explore and discover and write and read and learn–to set the world on fire.
I’ll post more soon, but for now I’m just dying of excitement and ready for my life in France, part two, to begin. ♦
