I Think We Should See Other People

The countdown has begun! At this hour and in approximately eight days from now, we’ll be on our flight from NYC to Vancouver for the first leg of our trip.  I may feel ready to leave, but I’m not sure I’m willing to break-up with Boston for good.  Hear me out.  I’ve been living here for over a year, and the anticipation of leaving has made me present to the fact that I’m in love with Boston.  Yes, the L word. It’s worth mentioning that like many relationships, Boston and I did not start off on the right foot. If I’m being completely honest, Boston was a rebound. It was fueled by liquor and sustained by simply going through the motions.

It took a while for me to begin living more intentionally here, but I have truly found connection and inspiration from old friends and new communities. This city has so much more to offer, but I have a feeling I’ll have more to offer in return after this amazing experience. I am ready to be astonished.

“It's the emptiest and yet the fullest of all human messages: Good-bye.” –K.V.

It’s a break… not a break-up,
