You’re In Charge Universe!

I’m excited and petrified. I’m sad and happy. I’m a plethora of emotions and feelings all over the spectrum that comes along with partaking in the human condition. Why is that exactly? Well I’m turning 21 years old next week. In another country. The first time I’ll be away from my family and well America in general for this amount of time. I’m just a kid from New York City that happens to be studying in Copenhagen, Denmark for the next four months of my life. Yeah you can say that the rules of engagement are going to be drastically different for the next four months. I’ve experiences a lot in my soon to be 21 years of life on this big blue sphere of ours. I wouldn’t have been able to fathom half of the things I’ve seen or done thus far. I’m an adventurer by nature, however that may sound contradictory because I also like to be very thorough when it comes to many aspects of my life. I like to know what I have plan for myself and my future well because I care about my life, and I have a lot I want to get done! The catch about traveling overseas is that I have to get comfortable with being uncomfortable, for a prolonged period of time. The thing is I can have all the contingency plans in the world but once I get punched in the face those literary go out the window and I have to roll with said punches! Someone really special in life told me I had to be okay with letting the universe do its job and being okay with letting go of any control I think I might have over the situation. That’s extremely difficult for me to do and It’s been a blessing and curse to be an over thinker for the majority of my life. To be honest I’ve had doubts if at this point in my life if I made the right decision. That being deciding to pack up and leave the familiar and normalcy that has been my life up until this point for the unknown that is awaiting me in two days. I knew that I would regret it for the rest of my life if I decided to turn back now. All the hard work that it took for me to earn the opportunity to study abroad can’t end with me having second thoughts. It’s okay to be afraid, it’s okay to be nervous, and it’s okay to be vulnerable. These are all attributes that make up the strength that resides in each and every single one of us. I have no idea what is going to happen to me over these next few months. That’s okay. I’m here to find out and let the universe do its job. Here goes nothing! Ignite Hope.
