When to leave

I think that one of the most difficult things to do, is to decide when to leave.

I’ve been thinking about this problem a lot lately. I live in a huge house with 3 (a week ago we were still 5, but one of us made the difficult decision to leave in search for better  things) other people. We’ve became very close friends, and I can’t imagine life without them. We are young and independent.  If we have time off, we drive to the beach and spend the day there, we make cocktails, spend the day in the backyard or clean out the attic and have a picnic there. So basically, I’m having the time of my life. The problem? I know it’s not going to be like this forever, and I don’t want to be the last to leave. All of my house mates are in serious relationships. I think that two of them are going to get engaged before the end of the year, and the other one next year. They all are going to move on to the next phase and where does that leave me? It’s not going to be the same, I’m going to be alone. Without them, there’s not much keeping me here except for my job, which is not enough for me to stay.

Now, when is the best time to leave?

So....I really believe that I’m not the only person feeling this way. Like Lucius Annaeus Seneca  put it: "If one does not know to which port one is sailing, no wind is favorable." And that's exactly my problem...I have no idea where I want to be. I’m content in the moment, but is constantly restless about the future. I have too much of a hunger for success and fulfillment to just leave it there, but never in my life have I had a clear picture of where I want to be. Therefore I want to make life about the journey. I want to appreciate life for what it is, and not let the small things pass me by without noticing them. For the "where do I want to be?"...maybe I will find out along the way.

  1. Isn’t there a quote that says “The art of living is knowing when to hold on and when to let go?” Love that quote! Great post!
