Will I?

{photo via:here}

I'm in an a bit of a melancholy mood today. Not sad, per say, nor overjoyed. I'm consumed with thoughts of what my life will be like come September, when I'm all packed and living thousands of miles away from my friends and family. This is such a tremendous opportunity, one that I am so excited and grateful for, nevertheless I would be lying if I said that I wasn't a little scared.

I can't help but wonder if things will be as enchanting as I imagine...

Will I make new friends from all over and will we stay out late soaking in each others similarities and differences? Will I enjoy my classes? Will they awaken within me a renewed sense of passion? Will I feel inadequate as an American in Europe? Will I travel as much as I hope to, and walk the streets of Paris, Barcelona, and Rome? Will I meet cute boys who say that I'm 'lovely' and give me proper kisses? Will I fall in love? Will I stay longer than an year? Will I stay forever?

I have no answers to these questions. And for right now... that's ok.

  1. i know that feeling...i too will be traveling from my family (my husband) to go to school in Europe...i think we'll both love it...but it's hard not to realize how terribly we'll miss loved ones. but thus is life...and we have to take these opportunities when they come!

  2. Hi Lisa, Thanks for stopping by today. I know getting ready to go off on an adventure like the one you'll be undertaking is so tough, but I think the hardest things we do are the ones pay the greatest rewards. I think you are super brave to make the leap!

  3. loving the inspiration!
    i'll be coming back to your blog for sure!
    come visit COSMICaroline and see behind the scenes at the Nashville Anthropologie event!
