Thursday I got laid off without a warning, Friday I purchased plane tickets and right now I am sitting in the airport lounge in MSP, waiting to board my flight across the ocean. Behind me a guy is snoring loudly, and I feel like the grubbiest human alive surrounded by suits. Still, at the end of the week I will be in the exact location the photo above was taken, hovering somewhere between the mountains and the lake.
There’s a silver lining to this situation, and I do see it. However, sometimes it is hard to focus on it when life decides to be so unexpectedly shitty. I am trying to remember that baby steps can sometimes be the best approach. I don’t need to know what I want to do with the rest of my life right now, and I don’t even have to decide on my next step immediately.
All I know is that I have the next month to relax, recharge, focus on personal projects and plan ahead. There will be family time, time to myself, as well as opportunities to travel on and explore some more of my home country as well. I had a short spell of good luck and found last-minute tickets at an almost affordable price, with only four days to prepare for takeoff.
All of that said, do prepare for Norway photos and more rants on here, as I am making myself a priority until I know where I will be headed after this.
