A New Beginning for Me, Returning Home

After 18 years in Florida, I am finally returning to the wide open spaces of the West, a dream I’ve had for sometime.  In a week and half I will drive a 10-foot moving truck across country for the first time to Wyoming. I will spend several months with my beloved sister and her husband, then return home to Arizona.

You can take the girl out of Arizona but you can never take Arizona out of the girl. I’ve discovered that you never move because of a job, it is the wrong reason to pull up stakes to give up everyone and everything you love.  Big life changes should never be a reaction to a problem, they follow you everywhere you go. Change should always be a choice and felt in your heart.

As I count down to my departure, I will remember the experiences and places that gave me pleasure. It is with great excitement and nervousness that I embark on this new beginning of my life.

My deepest desires for anyone who is at crossroads are that you let go of your limited beliefs and plans and let God co-create with you to arrive at the answers that you are seeking. From first hand experience, the outcome may not be what you imagined, but it will be what you want and need.

I sincerely appreciate your time and reading my post.

    What a great adventure! I lived in Colorado for 24 years. And ever since then I’ve yearned to go back!

      Hi JoAnn, the adventure to Wyoming was memorable and exciting. When I finally saw mountains for the first time in years, I nearly wept with joy. I am enjoying my family and adjusting the seasonal changes, what a grand way to experience a major life change. I hope you can do the same.

    Just found your blog via Danny’s…. I love what you said about letting go of our limited beliefs and plans and letting God co-create with us. Best wishes on the big move!

    Found your post via Danny. When I got married I couldn’t wait to leave Arizona and see new things. It was a great experience but Arizona will always be home. Look forward to following your blog. 🙂

      Thank you Shannon for following my blog. I felt the same way when I left Arizona, but now that I’ve been away for some time and become a nature photographer, I’ve come to appreciate the diversity and beauty of Arizona and am looking forward to returning. Have a great week.
