the big change : ATL - OC
Most of you babes know I moved from Georgia to California about two months ago.
I really enjoyed living in Atlanta, mainly because of all my close friends and family I had around me. I always had someone to call up to meet for dinner or a drink. I enjoyed walking on the belt line, especially when it started to turn fall, I had really great coworkers at my most recent job and it was working out really well. But I knew I wanted to be in California and pursue my dream.
There are so many things you give up when you follow your dream. I believe that there are seasons in your life where you may have a lot of friends and people around you. But there are seasons where you need to focus more on yourself and your own personal growth.
I have not been home sick since I moved out here. Believe me I know what home sickness feels like. I was homesick my first semester of college SO BAD. I hated that semester of college (it was in Tennessee). Even though that is when I established such a great friendship with my bff Borris (nickname I named her). We like never left our dorm room. It was our escape because we hated college. I remember going out for class and then coming back in right after and staying there until my next class. It was the WORST. But I am glad I had my dear friend there that I am still friends with. But anyways I get the whole homesick thing and I don’t have that right now.
Be Brave and do that thing you have always wanted to do. Because this life is so short. I mean so short, we really aren’t promised anything. I got into a really bad car accident about a month ago and there is no other reason why I am alive other than by having God save me and protect me. I am forever changed, and I have realized that this life goes in a blink of an eye.
So what are the things that have been on your heart?
What are the dreams and emotions that you have had for things but you haven’t acted on?
If there is something, I urge you to pray about them, talk through them with people that you trust. Open up and realize that you are brave and that God put you here for a reason. Ask him why he put this dream in your heart and what you can do about it.
What is the next move for you?
Thanks for reading, until next time.
