“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”  ― Lao Tzu

well, it’s officially down to 8 days before i take off for thailand. not a whole lot to tell, but figured now was as good as time as any to start into the habit of blogging. i thought today would be a good time to start organizing and packing. i’m realizing that it’s harder to decide what needs to stay and what needs to go than i thought.

what do you take with you when you go half way around the world for 6 months? is my favorite shirt really that important? do i really need 20 pairs of shoes? probably not, but in the suitcase they go! just in case 🙂

the hardest part is not worrying. am i forgetting something? do i have everything i might need? what if this or what if that? right now, i’m trying to remember to remind myself it will all work out, it’s okay to be nervous, and that i need to breathe. deep breaths. ready or not, here goes!
