Before I start on about change, I wanted to introduce this blog to YOU. I have been meaning to create a blog for a while but haven't gotten around to it. Not until this last month and with all of its changes have I really felt the need to make one. I want this to be a place where my friends, family, and even those unknown to me, can come and read about where I am, what I am doing, what new foods I've tried (gluten free of course!) and what new adventures I've stumbled upon. And, obviously, this is just another reason for me to mindlessly sit for hours on end in front of the computer being distracted from real life....you know you do it too...don't judge me. Now onto the blogging...
I find it hard sometimes to fully accept change in life. Don't get me wrong, I love change, I crave it even. But when it pulls up and stops on my doorstop sometimes I just get hesitant, a little. My next change that will be taking place is my big move to Los Angeles this May. And yes, I know, it's Los Angeles and its for an amazing job opportunity that I am honest-to-God totally ecstatic about and cannot wait for it to start, but, at the same time I just got here, I just got moved in and I finally feel like things are going well for me. For those of you who know me, and know me well enough, know that my history has not been one filled with much stability and settled-downness. Needless to say, I love moving around. Which is why I am so thrilled at this new change that is happening soon. Can you blame me though for feeling a little hesitant about it? Rex (my boyfriend) and I are in a really good place and I feel like maybe throwing that for a loop could mess something really great up. It's a chance that we are both willing to take, and I could not ask for anymore support and love from him through all this...he has been amazing about it.
So is change all its cracked up to be? We'll see. My change from Minneapolis to Little Rock started out a little rocky but after some adjustments and some me-time, I found a way to make who I am work down here. I suppose that's what being young and "carefree" is all about huh? Having the ability to change and change again, reinventing yourself over and over again to match and fit in wherever you may find yourself. Finding your niche.
I am heading to Los Angeles for a long weekend in two weeks for a "trial run" at the city and at the job. After that I should have many more ideas about the future and what's coming my way down the road. Until then, I'll keep thinking, and stressing, about what is to come...loving every minute of this adventure before it even starts.
