How many times have you moved in your life? It’s getting a little uncountable for me… I grew up all over the place. I was born in MA and ended up in GA. My nomadic upbringing left me hungry for more. The past five years I’ve been living all over Windham county, CT and getting my fill of magical New England. But the February air and 3 feet of snow (and a burning desire for change in my soul) are telling me to spread my wings again. Enter Asheville, NC. I have never been so excited to live somewhere! Growing up, my dad’s job dictated where we would move a lot of the time but now I’m older and more free and I get to choose where I go. I think we all have a lot more freedom than we give ourselves credit for. We end up identifying with certain places and people and sometimes we let those roles tell us who we are. I think you should love where you are, what you do and the people you surround yourself with, but above all you should love yourself and stay true to you. Your friends and family will love you no matter where you are.
I would like to challenge you, you beautiful soul, to do something for yourself this weekend. Maybe you can get away to the mountains or take a day trip to a special cafe with amazing coffee or just curl up with a good book. Just be sure to give yourself some love because once you do it’s a lot easier to hear that voice inside that tells you what it is you really want out of life.
