I spent the end of 2013 and half of 2014 traveling solo around the world. I didn't get lonely. I did have a hard time coming back, and an even harder time returning to a "normal" job. Debatable whether that was an error-bank account and health care card say, "not at all!" Passport says, "remember when you had my digits memorized?" I will do it again. Longer, different, and just as full of adventure and angst the next time around. Hopefully just as full of joy and fear-busting boundaries broken.
I work in operations in the financial services sector. Easily said, I'm the person that makes your ATM card work. If you prefer business lingo, I'm on a team that delivers strategic initiatives and executes transformational change. But if you prefer business lingo, we aren't a good match. In other words, I'm a project manager who can get things done.
I think life is about learning and experiencing, and I don't subscribe to any one belief system.
That said, I just went to my second funeral in two months, so I'm starting to think a lot about belief systems. But I'm still not falling for one.
