I'm leaving for a fresh start, a clean slate and new chapter of my life. Part of me is petrified and the other is jumping for joy. I am learning to balance these two emotions and trying to "get my life" together at the same time.
One of the hardest things about moving is having to say goodbye to those whom you've spent your time with. When I know that it's for a while, I really despise saying goodbye to someone. And now I am having to tell some pretty awesome people I'll be seeing them next time I'm in town. Tying up my loose ends.
I'm going on an adventure
Sitting in my favorite corner of my apartment. Candles burning, music playing and breeze blowing the tree outside my window. For a moment things are very idyllic. I can not believe that my promise of adventure is coming in two months. It's real, at this part in my timeline, I am moving.
As much as I bitch about this city I will always hold it dear. I spent a great deal of my life here in Atlanta. Not to mention on a farm two hours from here. Georgia is my home, where I'm from and where I have roots. I will always come back here for the people and places that I hold dear to my heart.
Moving across the country was something I have always wanted to try. Now that it is here I am beyond words of mixed emotions. I know I want to do this, I wanted adventure, something new and exciting. But boy am I scared, I am leaving everything I know. Heading into the unknown with my arms open. Let's do this...right?
Focus ahead & love behind
One of the things that is helping me is by looking at all the amazing things I can achieve. I am getting closer to some of my dreams, I can find a place where I belong, I can meet more interesting new people, the possibilities are endless.
As I said before I will always have a love for Atlanta and the friends I've made here. I will always look back on all the many memories and amazing times shared. If I keep hold of these memories I can leave Atlanta with a full heart and hope for my future.
