Making the decision to turn your life upside down and to do something different is difficult. When you make that decision and then the world blows up on you that makes you rethink everything.
Fear is powerful. Regardless of whether or not we want to admit it, fear makes decisions for us more often than not.
However, leaving Brazil was not necessarily about fear for myself or my safety because I felt safe in Brazil, it was about not being close enough to my friends and family…just incase.
I wanted to be close to them, and so I left Floripa, Brazil and returned to Memphis. Wherever you are, I hope that you are safe and surrounded by family and friends.
