The moment I decided to change everything was the best moment of my life. There is a quote from a book called The Circle Maker by Mark Batterson that goes, “You are only one decision away from a completely different life.” I made that one decision. The decision I made was to leave my life in Phoenix, Arizona and move to Fort Collins Colorado. A lot of different things prompted this decision. One of them was that I was in an abusive relationship. I knew I had to get out for my own safety and sanity.
So, I left. My apartment isn’t going to be ready until July 6th and I took a break from my life to spend some time with my dad. He is a truck driver and I thought what a better way to spend a month than traveling the country? I have been to so many new places. I am so much happier and content that I ever was in my old life. Yes, I left a lot of places I loved and people I cared about but I am so excited about what the future holds for me. One piece of advice that I was given many years ago, and I still tell myself to this day, was to “do what’s best for you”. So that is what I’m doing. I hope that some of this might help someone else do the same thing. Whether you are in a bad relationship, a job you don’t like or even a city that doesn’t feel welcoming, I hope you have the courage to make the changes that are needed for you to live a happy Life. Because that’s something everyone can make for themselves.
