Safe Storm

As I wrap up the writing of the second book, I begin to see a pattern. My greatest forms of progress came from massive leaps of faith into the unknown. For each hesitation I held back out of fear. More recently I have tossed and turned with the idea of maybe staying in the USA and going for a safe route to success. Why did I have to test the boundaries? Why did I have to make life so challenging? Why couldn’t I be normal?

That was when I decided that I am not any of those things, nor do I want to be. I want to dive in with all my heart into the things and places that bring me joy. I returned to the USA to spend time with family and stumbled upon a second Masters. In the process I cultivated a way of thinking about social business. I was then aware of the pressing issues facing my hometown of Baltimore. Now it is time to go back to Bali, I thank my lucky stars for a family that does not hold my wings.

Here we are on the runway waiting to take off. The truth is that I am more afraid when I stand waiting and not moving. Once I embraced the unknown I felt like a bird coasting along the clouds. Mastering any pursuit whether dance or education takes continuous effort and practice. Though this time round I am going to enjoy life a bit more all while doing some pretty exciting activities.
