I have travelled many roads, lived many adventures, encountered many dangers and experienced great moments. But from all the travels that I have done, the biggest one is, for me, yet to come. I will store my life in Whistler and pack my bags for a 5 month work journey in the Caribbean… this time, all alone.
I feel lonely. Not just by being alone, but with the idea of leaving my friends, my life and my dog that I all adore back home to go and work overseas in a new place with new faces. The challenge is real and affects me already. I know, I know, I am not travelling through a developing country on my own. The Queen’s face is on the coin and a large community of expats reside on the island. Grand Cayman Island is a civilized territory, safe and pretty. I am not afraid of the place, I am afraid of loneliness. I miss everything back home, 8 years that I spent building relationships and attachment. My bubble. My comfort zone. Now, I will have 5 months to conquer my fears and do it alone. But this is what I wanted. A journey to myself.
Retrieving myself from what I know will hopefully make me grow. I want to learn things on my own. I want to be strong. It’s a scary road for me and I am still not sure how long I will last. But I need to get up and try!
So chin up and let’s do it! Because we only have one life…I have travelled many roads, lived many adventures, encountered many dangers and experienced great moments.
