Keeping perspective

I have just tried some computer updates and all my content from my blog has disappeared.

Inhale….Exhale…Keep everything in perspective…

I am on with live chat as I type.

10 Years! That’s how far content went back on Adventure Adikt. I hope it’s not gone forever.

Adventures through 50+ countries. Adventures in going back to school. Moving adventures (and more moving). Hiking adventures. Adventures with friends. Solo adventures.

I completely changed in the last 10 years. I hardly recognize that person who landed in Italy in early February 2006. She changed.

A lot. Hopefully for the better.

I’ve changed careers. Twice. I’ve traveled a lot more. I’ve loved. And lost.

I know more about ‘balance’. I think I’ve learned how to put things in perspective.

In my early 20’s, life was all about following some predetermined life path set up by society. I may have failed miserably on following the predictable path that went college—>marriage—->career—->house—->children, but I have definitely succeeded on following MY path. It went something like this college–>travel—>more college—>Career 1—>more college—->more travel—>even more travel–>more college—>Career 2—>more travel. I hope I can continue to learn and travel for the rest of my life. If I find love, that’s great, but I’m not counting on it.

I think I’m a better person than I was 10 years ago. I like to think that I am able to keep perspective in all areas of life. If I have to start over, well, there’s no time like the present.
