After we got off the phone I let this whole idea of quitting your job and moving to a different country resonate within me. What courage that must have taken for him to go in and tell his boss he was resigning and then to tell his parents about this new life path he has chosen. Now granted I don’t envy him for having to do all of that but deciding to set out and doing something for himself. I mean how often in life do we get the opportunity to chase something that we think is just a dream. Now following through and actually achieving it and living it!
"Go confidently in the direction of your dreams! Live the life you've imagined."--Henry David Thoreau
Though the thought of him in a different country makes me a tad bit anxious, I am so happy for him. If you could have heard the freedom and relief in his voice as he was telling me about this new chapter in his life, you would have encouraged him to take this chance as well. Granted I am going to miss all the free pens and gloves. But hey, having a friend in Brazil means a free place to stay when I decide to pick a vacation spot! Good luck my sweet friend.
Live it, Reap it!
