Right now? I have this giant security blanket that touches everything I do, and influences pretty much every moment of my life. I'm leaving the country to live in another hemisphere. And its an amazing feeling to have this decision made and done. To know that life will not be the same. That I'll be adventuring on my own two feet in cities I've never been in. I'll be meeting people from different cultures, different walks of life. I'll be seeing things I haven't ever seen, and experience a whole bunch of new adventures that I couldn't possibly experience where I am right here, right now.
And knowing this flavours everything. It means I appreciate my everyday ordinary, because soon it won't be my everyday ordinary. I let drama go a little more easily, because it doesn't matter - I'm leaving it behind. I means I'm more likely to say yes to adventures. Yes I want to spend more time with my friends. Yes I want to spend more time with my family. Yes I want to see more of this country I'm leaving. Yes I want to do as much and see as much and remember as much as I can.
Sadly, it also means that I'm less motivated at work because with all the exciting adventures that I'm going to have (Canada, Italy, London - oh my!) I'm finding it very hard to care about work drama. About my clients unnecessary panic attacks. About niggly little worries that IE8 doesn't quite look like IE7. About the Operations vs Developer communication debacle. I just don't care. It's headphones on, volume up, daydreams forward ho.
But otherwise? Most freeing thing ever to know that I'm leaving. That everything I'm doing is currently temporary. That the next adventure is only a little while away. Best. Thing. Ever.
