Dont wanna grow up
i wanna get out
hey take me away
i wanna shout out
take me away
away away away away
I remember in my rare moments of teenage dramatics thinking arrgghh this is too much I wish I could just run away. Yep run away from all the pressures of getting good grades in high school and being told what I was and wasn’t allowed to do by my mum……Sometimes I wish I could go back to 16 year old Rach and smack her in the head and give her a big Heads Up on how great her life was.
Don’t get me wrong this isn’t a pity party post my life is still pretty great and for the most part I’m happy but lately there has been a part of me that relates to 16 year old Rach….I want to run away not from my husband or my home so much but I feel like my path is hidden from me occupational wise.
I want to study and learn and grow and try new things. I want to truly believe that 31 isn’t as old as it currently feels. I want to be successful. I want to work out what it will take for me to feel successful…..but most of all.
I WANT TO GET AWAY!!!
My leave has been approved and hubby and I are away ……in November and December. 5 weeks away to spend Christmas with my best girlfriend and her family in North Wales and before that for Chris and I to finally have a quick honeymoon (albeit 3 years later) in London and a quick European tour (we’re working out the details). The tickets are booked we fly out on November 25 and I cannot wait. I may even treat you guys to some Vlogs while I’m away.
November is so far away and everyday I remind myself that this hard work is getting us one step closer to our trip, our hard earned time off. Everyday gets me closer to my best girl. Everyday gets me closer to London.
Oh London how I have missed you.
November seems so far, London seems so far.
I want to run away…… maybe I should change my perspective it’s not really that I want to run away so much as I want to run towards something…..run towards November, towards London, towards the me who is happy being wherever it is that I am.
Do you ever feel like running away?
