As I look out at the endless horizon ahead of me in the above picture, I realize that lately, I’ve felt the need to get away, disappear or just be forgotten by everyone. I want to quit my job, sell all my belongings and take my child and husband and disappear somewhere far away; maybe start a new life.
It’s not that I’m depressed or sad or even mad at anyone or anything in my current environment and life; I’m just bored. I’m tired of the day-to-day challenges, responsibilities and routines. I need some change and excitement in my world and as much as I love my city, I’m a little tired of it and bored by it.
But with a growing child, who needs to be educated and probably requires some stability, I don’t see myself or our family going anywhere anytime soon. Plus, I highly doubt I could convince Dev to leave everything here and start anew.
Going on vacation won’t satisfy the urge for excitement either because I probably won’t want to come back from wherever I end up going/if I end up going. I need a more permanent change.
Any suggestions? Have any of you just closed all ties in a city or country and suddenly moved somewhere new and started all over again? Share you stories with me!
