I was driving down the highway last night and noticed that the leaves have already started to change! It’s technically not fall yet, but it made me excited. This year is already flying by, but we’re about to enter my absolute favorite season! It got me thinking about the season of change that I am entering in my own life. As I looked at my 30 before 30 list (more on that later), I realized that the goals that I had last year aren’t the same goals that I have now. My life is about to shift in a way that I have never experienced. My husband Brandon and I are staring head on at a potential relocation to a different state, which will come with changes in employment, a new local church, and new friends. It is scary to think about, but I’m excited.
I think that at times in our lives we can only grow if we are pushed past our comfort levels. The past couple of years that we have spent in Virginia have certainly been familiar and comfortable, but I am ready for different. I think it’s time for not only a change in scenery but an internal change. There are so many things that I don’t want to carry with me into next year. What better time to start working on change than right now?
I decided to start this blog because I never want to forget my starting point. It is only in looking back that I can appreciate how far I’ve come. I’m not alone in this, though. I know that there are people who are hungry and ready for change too — whether it’s in learning something new, losing weight, kicking a bad habit. Let’s shake off the old and look forward to starting something new. ‘Tis the season. Are you with me?
