I started this blog when I made up my mind to quit my job and with it the life that I created. Well today is my first day of freedom. Yes I am officially an unemployed bum.
So how did the day go? Well it started with one of the worst hangovers of my life. I expect with a year of traveling ahead it wont be the last. However it got considerably better with some fresh air and a massive bagel. All in all it wasn’t a day with a lot of bangs but one with a quiet inner peace that I haven’t felt in a long time.

My App (STA travel app) tells me its 32 days till the world I have created is fully deconstructed and I start my new adventure, first stop New Zealand.
For those who dont know the reference of my blog title today, its a film where you see two branches of someone’s life after an important event/decision is made.
The reason I reference the film is I went to see a house with a good friend today who is about 6 months behind me and asking the same questions- can I afford it? why am I buying? do I want to live here? what do I compromise on? etc. The difference between us is she is excited and energised by the experience and therefore taking that branch of her life.
The point you ask! Is no matter what direction you are taking make sure its the one for you because life is to short. And remember its never too late to make a crazy decision and take a different branch like me.
As always I will leave you with a quote I enjoyed.
“Her vision of the world under the water represented a beautiful stillness, a version of heaven. It was the lost city of Lena, her alternate universe, the life she yearned for but didn’t get to have.” ― Ann Brashares
I wanted to try something different today, I hope you enjoy it.
Life is the maze, and we stick to the path.
If you turn the wrong way do you risk getting lost.
To know is to feel safe, but what is lost.
To get lost we feel but is it hope or despair.
A risk worth exploring or is it a danger to great.
A decision to turn when everyone travels straight.
I turned to the right and left my life with the fates.
