I was hoping to have the perfect news to share, that my plan was coming together just exactly the way I wanted. Sometimes, you just can’t see the whole picture, only the parts in front of you and you have to hold on tightly to your dreams, all the while letting go of how the details manifest. Last Monday I quit my job. (It was kind of mutual due to budget concerns, but they were also driving me nuts).
Meanwhile, I have been working on my travel plans. So far I have a solid offer from an organization in India and a small business in Ireland to come help them grow. But, I would really like to start in Spain. I finally found an awesome opportunity in Spain to go do some marketing for a villa. They wrote back immediately and offered to host me, but after writing again last night, I haven’t heard from them again.  So. I must once again put it out of my mind and let the universe take care of it.  I’m going to go for a bike ride and then turn my attention to redoing my website and finalizing the subscription to my new blog. I’ve named the blog “Chasing Freedom, A Wild Woman’s Journal.” What do you think of the name?
