That’s it! I’ve FINALLY done it!
I’m officially packed up and ready to go. I’ve sold almost all of my possessions in preparation for my long-term travels.
Lordy, who knew that letting go of STUFF could be so hard. It really has been a task of EPIC proportions. I've been more than a little surprised at the emotional journey the process of letting go has been.
I've come to realise just how attached we, as a western society, are to material things and how much they define us in the pecking order of life.
Letting go of my belonging has been a process of gradually loosening my grip on all that I own one finger at a time! But now that it's done I feel lighter, freer and very much relieved.
Today after three solid months of laborious selling, trips to the charity shop, packing and constant pouring rain I said a fond farewell to my beachside pad in Brighton... and as if by magic, the sun began to shine to give me a good ol’ send-off.
This picture was my last look at the sea before I go.
Next up: A 5-hour drive to Northern Lincolnshire for a visit with my Mother before I fly.
Whoop! I’m nearly there!
