I've never been good at goodbyes. I'm either too emotional or not emotional at all. I am usually the one sending someone else off on a new journey of their own while I stay back in the comfort of my own life. This time it's different. This time it's me, jumping off the cliff into a new world of uncertainty while everyone else bids me farewell and as I prepared myself for a final night out with friends, I was a bundle of nerves. Honestly, I didn't know how I would handle it lol.
However, in the days leading up to my departure, there has been an outpour of love and support that I would never have imagined. From the moment I decided to relocate, to a week out from said relocation in which I launched a blog before I even finished packing (and I still haven't finished #DontJudgeMe), my friends, family, and associates (even strangers) have gone above and beyond in their shows of support and I'm tremendously grateful!
I've always imagined relocating but never thought I would have the guts to pick up and go. If I'm being honest, I am scared to death of the unexpected but I'm even more afraid of living a life with regrets. I mean I already live with the fact I never expounded upon my entry level coding skills from the "MySpace" days but that's neither here nor there. #WastedTalent
My drive and determination are paving the way for me to do bigger and better things but it's been the love and support from others that solidifies my confidence in doing so. To all of you who have sent kinds words, supported the blog and devoted time and energy into making sure that this process wasn't a complete nightmare, THANK YOU! Here's to new beginnings!
**Special shout out to the ridiculously talented Jonathan Schwager who is responsible for the awesome 48x48 watercolor painting he created just for me! What a beautiful going away gift. Check out more of his work at www.thepoorpourartist.com
