Change in the Weather
October 29, 2017
I am sitting in my kitchen. I have two long sleeve shirts on. I am wearing my warmest sweatpants. Oh, and don’t think for a second that I do not have socks on. cuz I do. So yes, I’m just here thinking to myself “WHAT DID I DO?!” Yep. It’s real. I moved back to Utah.
It’s in the hundreds in LA and my crazy self has ended up back in Utah where the weather is showing me no love. I am not going to lie, I would do anything to be laying by the pool, sipping a sparkling Bai (Bolivia Black Cherry to be specific), and listening to the jams and playing games with my friends!
There is nothing better than the California weather, but in my case, I think this spontaneous change may end up being beneficial in the long run. Change is hard. It’s so uncomfortable. Leaving the life you’ve built, your friends, your loved ones, basically everything that is familiar, and having to start over…it’s intimidating. Hard. Scary. but we ALL know… “There is no growth in the comfort zone.” How often do we take chances? How often do you say to yourself, “What am I doing with my life? I wish I could be doing ____. I am bored with what I am doing.” I know we ALL think it. I know I think about it way too much. But I am doing it. I am making change. I am taking risks. I am going to do my best to do what makes ME happy. Like this blog. I probably have like one reader (my mom), but its my outlet. It was left in the dust because I was trying to stay afloat with my California life. But I love it. It makes ME happy. I am going to do it for ME! Push aside those who hate, who discourage, who make you think that you are not capable of doing what YOU want to do. Because you are more than capable!
Now is the time do be brave! Make changes. Do what makes YOU happy, and if you don’t know what that is, take leaps of faith and figure out what it is. I’m still trying to figure out what REALLY makes me happy. I am learning new things everyday. I face challenges that are taking me to people I need to meet. Places I need to go. Am I struggling? Yep! Am I growing? I sure hope so. Have I already met people who are helping me get to where I need to be? You bet! God is good.
And that’s my little shhhpill.
Now about this swimsuit. I should have posted this a long time ago. But I am terrible at keeping up on here! That’s going to change. One day…haha Anyway, this swimsuit is one of my fave finds. Unfortunately, I found it one the sale rack at Aerie and it was the ONLY ONE left. And get this…it was too big! But I wanted it so bad that I bought it, took it to the tailor, and she worked her magic! If you are somewhere warm, I hope you are enjoying every second of it! Catch some rays for me and send some warm weather my way!
