3 Things I've Learned from Moving Home
Happy Summer everyone! I've made the big move across the states again and I trust me, even if I keep saying how much I miss Los Angeles, I couldn't be happier to be home. They say things like "Home is where the heart is", "Theres no place like home" or "The magic thing about home is that it feels good to leave, and it feels even better to come back". Well, I can tell you in the month that I have been back, I haven't felt more like myself in years. Weird, right?! Almost everyone I know has told me, "You're so LA". So that statement may come as a shock.
Sometimes we go searching for things, sometimes we go very far, but somehow what we are looking for ends up right where we belong...and right now for me, that's home.
Here are the 3 things I've learned since moving home from Los Angeles:
1. Slow Down & Enjoy the Ride.
Sure its fun to be in the center of all the glitz and glamour. But sometimes we need a break and some space to reflect on our lives and relax. I am grateful to be back around my family and my closest friends. Sometimes when you're caught up in everything around you, you forget that there's a whole other world out there, or your hometown and the slow paced lifestyle you grew up on.
2. Create Your Own Adventure.
Don't like what you see. Change it. You are in control of your adventure and it can be as fun or as horrible as you make it. Moving back East was hard, like the worst breakup ever. In order for me to go through with my decision, I had create my own adventure. It's still a work in progress...but I'll update you as soon as I have it all figured out ;)
3. Don't Look Back.
You've heard the saying "Don't look back, you're not going that way". Well this applies in a major way when you leave a city you had a love/hate relationship with. Just like I said above, the worst. breakup. EVER. Keep looking forward, you can't dwell on the what if's and such.
