“She took a step and didn’t want to take any more, but she did.” – Markus Zusak
In case you haven’t heard I’ll be moving to Colorado. I have friends out there that I’ve known for almost a decade that I’ll be moving in with. Words cannot express how excited I am for this time in my life. I went out to Colorado at the end of May and I knew I had to find a way to stay. I’ve lived out there previously, but I didn’t fully appreciate the life I was able to live there. Now I will take advantage of it to its fullest.
The last time I visited I loved who I was. I was able to live life in a way that I can’t, or at least don’t allow myself to live in Kansas. Although I’m sad to leave the family I’m sure they’re sad as well but happy to have an excuse to visit Colorado.
I’ve lived in my current house since May, some might say it’s insane to already move but I’m ready. When I originally came back from California I was planning on leaving in Q1 2021, obviously, that didn’t happen. I had a few hiccups in the way but now I’m confident that this is the right decision.
It’s the first time I’ve been excited to move in a long while. This is how I know it’s the right decision, some might call me crazy but I don’t need to listen to them.
I didn’t expect myself to be here at nineteen but I’m grateful to be here. I’ve gained a lot of strength within myself to accomplish this step and I’m ready.
So Colorado peeps I’ll see you soon, and Kansas we’ll cross paths again eventually.
