This Life is Beautiful.
It has been almost 6 months since I quit my job and started an adventure I never thought I was brave enough to take. This summer, Jason and I climbed mountains, swam in rivers, explored endless trails, watched the stars move and campfires flicker. My dad and I fished, hiked, camped and laughed. I discovered new parts of myself and uncovered some that were lost.
This past month, I was lucky enough to have the time to help my extraordinarily graceful momma recover from a tremendous surgery. I had sleep overs with my little sister and we told secrets and giggled like we were little girls again. The time I was able to spend with my family over the last couple of months was worth a lifetime.
This life is beautiful.
I hate to say it but, in these moments of transition, I’ve found myself stuck in thoughts of inadequacy. I don’t know what is next, what my job will be, where I will live and who I will meet. As scary and uncertain as all of this is, it is also quite ironic. This is the moment of endless potential.
Yesterday, I moved to Nashville. And while it’s true, I don’t know any of these things, I do know that I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to say yes to every chance I have to integrate into this community, meet the people that make it beautiful and make this the next adventure.
Here’s to you, Nashville! Let’s live a great life! After all, this life is beautiful.
If you are in Nashville, or know someone who is, I want to meet you and hear your story!
