In 43 days I will be picking up my Casita. The countdown has begun! I will be on the rode very soon. I’m so excited, but also a little bit scared. I find myself thinking “what am I doing, why am I doing something so stressful!” I question whether or not I can do this. Just because there are other older woman traveling alone it doesn’t mean that I can do it. It may be too scary to be out there on the road alone. I may not be strong enough, have the skills, be brave enough.
Then, I take a deep breathe and think about how strong I am. There is nothing I’ve ever attempted that I found I couldn’t do. I remind myself that anything new is scary and intimidating. If I don’t have the skills I can develop them. I remember that there are more good and helpful people out there than there are bad or hurtful. I have prepared myself as well as I could. Will there by surprises in the process of becoming acclimated to travel. Absolutely! But that is part of the fun. I can and I will do this.
