In one sense, I am an extremely logical person. I look at almost every situation I am in through a cause and effect, one plus one equals two, type of lens. I figure people out; I recognize motives and reasons and reactions. Even when I am emotional, I am able to recognize and tell myself that I’m overacting, that my emotions are not logical.
Tomorrow I move to Poland for at least 6 months.
My logical side tells me to be nervous. There is so much to be nervous for—language barrier, social life, finding my dorm, getting on a flight from Chicago after the 3rd worst storm in the city’s history. But my intuition says it’ll all be fine. I haven’t been nervous throughout the whole process, and I am not nervous tonight. I’ve moved before. I’ve lived where I knew no one and been better than fine. I thrive in these situations; I get my energy from the change and the shock and the newness of everything. So yes, there are plenty of logistical things that need to be taken seriously and could go very wrong. But I’m going to trust my intuition. I’ve got my ducks in a row and everything will work itself out. I wish I could pass these thoughts on to my mom…
