Miles to go before I sleep....

“Two roads diverged in a wood, and I -
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.”
― Robert Frost

The above quote is one of my me, it refers to choices...and choosing to take risks.
It speaks of taking chances and being daring and courageous. How exciting!
I feel like I've been playing it safe for some time....choosing to stay with the familiar, rather than taking a risk to venture into the unknown.

That has changed.
I recently made a decision, after much thought and consideration, to make a major change. I moved on. As I've mentioned in previous posts, change is uncomfortable for me. I realize that it's inevitable, but that does not make me rush towards it any faster. I don't regret the decision, but it wasn't an easy one to make.

I did something completely decadent today...I booked my first TWO trips for 2013! I signed up for a yoga retreat in Puerto Rico in February and just decided to fly to NY after the holidays. I booked both flights tonight....felt very indulgent! 
PLUS....I started doing research for my upcoming trip to Rome in May!

Life is GOOD!!

This is not something I could have done even a few weeks ago. As the result of the decision I made, I get to live more spontaneously. 
Not too long ago, someone I know posted their travel schedule on Facebook...US to South America, and several places in between...just within the window of about 3 months! I have to admit, I was a bit envious. My work schedule is not that flexible and I don't possess the resources to travel in that way....or so I thought.

It's amazing what can happen when you say YES to life!

Can't wait to see what's next....
