This is a picture of my son and I in a tearful embrace. Saying goodbye for 5 months before he embarks on a vacation and studying on the other side of the planet. Places I have never really imagined visiting because they were so exotic and seemingly unattainable. The fact is that I was sad. I was heartbroken to see him go and to let it happen causes me a lot of anxiety.
But the truth is this, as soon as I got my cry out after dropping him at the airport, I became very appreciative of the fact that at the ripe of age of 22 Wyat is setting and attaining goals.
To me that is amazing and while I am incredibly proud I am also very humbled by him. I have tried to give him a sense of autonomy and let him know that anything he wants he can achieve. He has taken that to heart and has excelled in all that he sets out to do.
It may all be a little disorganized and done differently than I would have done it, but here is the thing... I DIDN'T DO IT. I led a life paralyzed with fear of the unknown and didn't think I could ever do the things he is doing. I didn't have faith in the future or trust the process of the universe.
At the ripe old age of 47 I am learning to trust the process and the universe, To ask for what I want and to take steps to make it happen for me... It may seem a little disorganized and approached differently than you would have done it but here is the thing. I AM DOING IT! My way... trusting the process, trusting the universe. Making it happen.
Thank you for the lesson Wyat. I love you, happy trails and travels to you!
