Change is Good
Finally, an answer to my prayers came from an unexpected source, and I've been happier in the past few months than I have been in years. I am no longer in that awful, soul-sucking situation, and I finally have a clear head again. I only wish I could say the same for my mother and brother.
For those of you that don't know, on July 10th - coincidentally both my mom's and brother's birthday - I moved from Kentucky to Texas. A good friend of mine had an extra room and really wanted to help me out of the situation I was in. So after much prayer and consideration, I took the plunge. And ever since, I have been living in a small town in Eastern Texas.
I was skeptical moving so far away from the place I had called home for the majority of my life, and I had no idea what to expect once I got here. But really it's not that much different at all, at least not in the area I'm in. And the people I've met here and have surrounded myself with now are super kind, supportive and caring. Genuinely caring.
Change can be a scary thing, but it's something I desperately needed even more than I realized. And while things aren't perfect - they never are, right? - they are SO much better than I could have imagined. I am happy, I am revitalized, I am clear-headed and focused, I'm no longer stressed or depressed, sad or angry. I worry about my family, but aside from that, I am in such a better place than I have been for years.
I never thought of all the places I could go that I would end up in Texas. But I haven't regretted this move for one second. Who knew?
Change was needed, change was made, and now things are good again.
So for anyone that I haven't told yet that happens across this blog post, I apologize and I hope you can be happy for me. The move happened very quickly and I had little time to prepare, let alone inform everyone. The important thing is I'm in a better place, mentally, emotionally, spiritually and physically. Figuratively and literally. So be happy for me, my friends. I know I am!
