One Fine Day, It Will Be YOUR Turn

Violet Rising

It’s weird to think that I’ve been dreaming about going to Europe for so long, and now I’m actually going.  Do we ever feel ready? I don’t know, but ready or not, HERE I COME.  I’m coming with adventure burning in my heart.  I’m coming for life, people and stories.

It’s time for me to discover this world. I think the time comes to all of us at certain points in our lives. Sometimes it comes when we least expect it, sometimes it comes fleetingly, and sometimes it lingers for months and months or even years.  We just have to make the most of our time when it comes to us.

It’s my turn to fall in love with the world. It’s my turn to laugh at a cafe in Paris and to race down the Swiss Alps.  It’s  my turn to wander down the streets in Amsterdam looking up at the stars. It’s my turn to smell the ocean in the South of France, and to try an Italian gelato, and to sit at the edge of the Preikestolen in Norway. It’s my turn.

“One fine day, it will be your turn.
You will leave homes, cities, and countries to pursue grander ambitions.
You will leave friends, lovers, and possibilities, for the chance to roam the world and make deeper connections.
You will defy your fear of change, hold your head high, and do what you once thought was unthinkable: walk away.
It will be scary, at first.
But what I hope you’ll find in the end is that in leaving,
you don’t just find love, adventure, or freedom.
More than anything, you find
you.”
