I know nothing

Someone asked me the other day, “How are you feeling right now?”

She was referring to my upcoming journey to the east coast. And in that moment, I had no words to describe how I was feeling. My answer to her was, “I don’t know how I am feeling.”

That answer didn’t mean I’m not excited about this incredible opportunity. The truth is, I don’t know how to describe my feelings because this is entirely new to me…a journey across America in an Airstream Bambi. Sure, I’ve dreamt about this for a long time but I didn’t know how or when it would happen. And now that the time is here, I have no words.

I don’t have any expectations about how things will be. But I have a lot of hope. I think that’s the feeling I’m experiencing. Does that count?

  1. Hope / Hopeful is a wonderful feeling. Especially so, if it returns after a long absence.
    Not knowing … is also a (very) acceptable answer.

  2. You are living the dream Yon, looking forward to reading all about your adventures. Safe trip for you and Butters!

  3. You’re so beautiful inside and out. Thank you for sharing the La Push picture too, we took our kids there. It was a beautiful memory. You are such an inspiration Yon! I hope you don’t mind but I’ve shared your blog with a few of my co-workers. This blog couldn’t come at a more perfect time for those looking to rediscover themselves! XOXO

    • Ruth, thank you for your support and kind words! Knowing I have friends who are rooting for me makes the journey seem even more worthwhile. I am grateful that you decided to share my blog. 😄 Thank you!!
