The Path: Departure Notes/Higher Sounds: Caia- Remembrance (August 31, 2010)

I’m typing this post 6 hours before my one-way flight to New York City.  Many people I’ve come across this past week would ask me, “So are you ready?”

My standard answer was: “As ready as I can be.”

It’s been 8 months since my very first post on fear…and that it does not go away when you make big risks or decisions.  Sure I’m overwhelmed, sure I’m holding my breath figuring out how I’m going to raise necessary funds by September 9th, sure this move truly hasn’t hit me yet.

Ta-daaaaa!  Transition is meant to be necessary, not comfortable.

Atlanta served as training grounds for the career I’m about to embark on…I’ve been listening to my inner voice for months and it says it’s time for the next chapter, a higher stage, a strong push to become the best at what I do.

But I am grateful that I can call Atlanta my homebase: the support here from friends, acquaintances, and complete strangers who in 5 minutes of talking to me declare “You’re going to do great things/You’re going to be famous” is truly overwhelming…and confirming of God’s plan and gift He’s given me.

Now’s the time to impact New York City.  Let the next exciting stage of this journey begin.

Now for one of the most beautiful songs I’ve ever heard to complement this once-in-a-lifetime experience:

    Great words Travis. I know I definitely need them right now. I hate transtioning. Especially when it takes so long. You want things to just be done and you hate the transition phase as you progress through it, but there is always this tiny voice inside your head that keeps saying “you just gotta do this, gotta get through it.”
