A few years back I took my first trip out to Boulder and absolutely fell in love with Colorado. There was something about the atmosphere and epic landscape that just captivated me. After a few days roaming around and experiencing different landmarks. I went home hoping to return. I knew even back then that I wanted to live there, even if I wasn't consciously aware of the idea. It wasn't until I returned this past June that I knew I really wanted to move out there. It just felt right.
If you have been following my blog the past few months you will have seen the massive changes I have made in my life. because of certain circumstances I have built myself back up from the ground and I have a new found source of gumption. It was like waking up one day and realizing that going through the rough patches only made me stronger. I have a new found freedom about me where I feel as if anything is possible. Because it is, right?!
Plus I have finally decided to make the move out west, I am going to move to Colorado. Even saying it makes me excited. Right now I am in the research phase and making solid action plans. I have picked a vague date and set it to Spring/early summer of 2018. Looking forward to talking more about that soon.
I am finding out the more I go along that I am actually thankful some of these situations have come up for me. If they didn't I would have had the motivation I needed to do and say what I want and how I feel. I have been asking the universe for an adventure for a very long time. Now looking back I have been given adventure after adventure and now I am getting another one.
With all that is going on today we often forget to look at the bigger picture of our lives. We get super focused on everything else around us that we forget to stop and look at ourselves. Life is messy, it isn't some shiny piece of dream cake. We all have to do our part in making a change. The same goes for finding one's self. Stop and take a moment to reflect on your life and what you want out of it. Do you feel lost, stuck, deserted? How are you going to get your self un stuck, found, and filled with love?
We all have our own timelines, if we stop fixating on how we don't have what someone else has then we would be able to see how much we do have. Finding ourselves comes from overcoming obstacles, seeing our strength, asking for help when needed, being grateful and loving ourselves unconditionally. What are some of the things you love about yourself? What are some of the dreams you put on the back burner and want to start achieving? Don't wait any longer for permission to live your own life. Take a chance and see what happens.
