I have spoken to two people in the last 48 hours who are following their bliss. I am drawn to these stories like a bee to honey.
One young woman is quitting her job to travel with her grandmother for a month in Vietnam and then going to India on her own. Then, who knows? She is in her 20s and knows what she wants and she believes in going after it.
Another is an older man who has always lived on the East Coast. He and his wife are moving to Oregon to begin anew in a different kind of urban setting. There are wonderful adventures awaiting them in close proximity — Canada, California, etc.
These feel organic and right. It is more the norm in our society to stay in the ho-hum job or place and just exist and that makes me crazy. It’s such an unnatural choice. Their choices are courageous.
The honey tastes so good.
