As of 3 weeks ago I was moving to Denver, CO. As of 3 weeks ago I didn’t consume beer on a (daily) basis. As of 3 weeks ago I didn’t have the courage to speak up for what I actually, really wanted. As of 3 weeks ago I didn’t think I would experience the things I have experienced in these past 3 weeks.
Putting 100 percent into what I do and what I want out of life is something that has always been rather easy for me. Yes, we all have our days and our moments, it’s life. But what blows my mind is that just when you think you have something figured out, a curveball is thrown and it just happens to be the biggest thing ever to impact you. You think you prepare yourself for what is to come next. You think you prepare yourself for what you want. I fully believe and live by the statement that if I want something, I WILL make it happen. So considering that I was moving to CO 3 weeks ago to live that CO lifestyle, to be that adventurous person I have always dreamed of becoming, to be happier doing what I love…things, as you might have guessed, have changed. Just the thought of knowing that I had completed those few steps and made things happen and then all of a sudden I didn’t fully follow through with those plans made me feel like the biggest failure. But what I realized is that actually I was the complete opposite of a failure. Not accepting a higher position within my work, which will only lead me to bigger and better things (so cliché, yet so true) in the future would have been a fail on my part. I can not even begin to tell you how much happier I am, and my fellow co-workers for that matter, that leaving is out of the picture. For the time being…
All good things must come to an end. But not yet, not quite yet. This good thing that I have got going for me is truly what I want and have secretly ever wanted. It’s not until I saw that what I was about to leave is actually what I have always wanted in disguise. Funny how things work out in the end.
So these past 3 weeks I have spent in “celebration” and it is not stopping anytime soon. A celebration of a life realization that, ‘hey you DON’T have to have a plan for everything’. Yes, I literally have no idea what is going to happen next and that is the most fun. Spontaneousness. All. The. Way. Go with the flow.
Voted Best Dressed…by we, the people
Hang with people that make you happy. Be around people that make those crazy adventures, crazy. Spend nights dancing with your fav people to your own beat. (trust me, it’s awesome) Creating moments and living in the moment is what I have learned these past 3 weeks.
Not my typical post, I know, stopping this mushy gushy stuff, pronto! I’ve been so busy in the kitchen, having the time of my life traveling, learning more about people, friendships and relationships than ever these past 3 weeks…none of it will stop anytime soon. I think 24 is quickly becoming my favorite year yet.
Now back to my regular scheduled program of YouTube videos starring Harry Styles & Luke Hemmings, the dreamy-not-yet-21-year-old-boy-band-babes, it has been FAR too long. Still the same ol’ V over here!
