When you start something new there is always a little bit of anxiety mixed in with the thrill of the new, the unexplored, the possibility. Maybe that’s just me. Coincidentally, when planning a new adventure, I also go through waves of melancholy and exhilaration; sad about what I’ll never have time to experience and simultaneously over the moon about what I will be able to see and do.

My brain is a living, spinning contradiction in almost every way. It’s exhausting.

    I was going to ask if the picture was Chicago, and voila, you tagged Chicago!

    You are not alone. I’m teetering on the edge of a few big life changes – and while all for the better – I’m also teetering sheer excitement and terror, mixed with an all day anxiety of the “what if’s” (good and bad). You’re right, it is exhausting. But at least it’s Friday…?

      You’re right, the weekend was absolutely needed. And yes! Chicago! One of my favorite cities of all time!
