Into 2020 – Start From Now and Make a Brand New Ending

My new year transition begins on the 30th as I reflect on my accomplishments and the risks I took to improve my life and myself. As the new year approaches, reduce the pressure on yourself to make drastic and improbable changes as the new year approaches. As with any time in our lives, the most beneficial practice is to begin with where you are in the moment and then the outcome will blossom from that.

My most recent venture as I look forward toward my vision for myself was to become a member of a photography site of professionals where I submit my images for critiques and advice. I knew the only way forward to being a better photographer was to open myself to commentaries made by experts who know that I am there to accept their comments, learn and improve. I am excited for the changes that are going to come from that decision.

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.
