Leaving Riga

Today I'm leaving Riga and flying to Paris. I'll crash in a hotel near Charles de Gaulle, then rise with the sun to catch my flight back to Texas.

Remember when I left for this 20 day journey through Europe, and mentioned that my goal was to connect with myself again?

Well, I did. It's that simple.

And at the same time so un-simple that I can't find any words that would even come close to the surges of emotion and hands-on experiences of the past weeks.

All I know is that I plunged into this with one whopping intention, bought a plane ticket, took a huge leap of faith into new experiences that scared the crap out of me, and here I am so many days later as I begin my exit out of Europe ... feeling like a brand new person.

I can't wait to tell you all about it, and I will when the time is right.

For now, I'm sending huge gratitude and hugs to all my new friends. You know who you are, and I hope you feel even one tiny shred of the gratitude I'm sending your way today for all the moments and all the feels. You people are amazeballs.

Looking forward to the next time .... and I'm looking forward to being me again.
