"Women are made to be loved, not understood."
It's somewhat hard to believe that I am sitting in my kitchen, drinking hot chocolate, typing away on my tiny cafe table, in Colorado. In the past three weeks I have pushed myself through a wonderfully challenging transition. When I first decided to move out here it was impulsive and during a very emotional time in my life. Now that I am here, I have never been happier that I made that rash decision.
I have been exploring places big and small, far and near. I've seen parks, lakes, animals, museums. Every day I am finding new and exciting places to look up or try. I know the vacation phase will be ending soon and exploring with be in-between my day to day.. So I am enjoying every single second and moment I have to wander.
Every errand, drive, journey has something to see. I don't think I'll ever get over the views. Every time I see the mountains I feel my breath taken away. I absolutely love my apartment. A small cottage style mixed with city charm feel. The moment I saw I knew it was the one for me, it even came with a pre-existing pink accent wall. BONUS! I am beyond ready to get the rest of my stuff from storage. I am ready to put my personal spin and vibe into this space.
The one thing, the only thing that hurts, the only thing that's been hard is the homesick feeling I get. I miss my family and friends. Every now and then I feel saddened that with thoughts of how far they are. Luckily I have had plenty of face time chats, texts and shared photo albums. It feels good to see their faces and smiles back at me, encouraging me as I go along. Feeling supported and loved, knowing that I'll see them all again soon.
So where ever you are tonight I hope this finds you well. I hope that the choices you're making are leading you closer to your dreams. I hope that your reading this and knowing that there is a light out there for you. I am sending you light, love and many happy thoughts. Remember, sometimes getting closer to our dreams can be hard and scary. Always remember that we are worthy of our dreams. Now go out and find yours!
