When my family told me we were moving to Arizona from Connecticut in 2005 after I graduated high school when I was 18, I thought my life was over.
I had a boyfriend thought I was going to marry, my job at Starbucks which I thought was the best job ever, my Jeep Cherokee which I thought was the best car & I always thought that the east coast was the best coast.
I cried, I pleaded, I begged not to move.
I was on the verge of a mental breakdown.
I felt like it was an absolute death sentence.
I had to leave the life I ever knew and all of my friends.
I was in love with my boyfriend who was 7 years older yet he was an unstable bipolar alcoholic which I was completely blinded to.
Looking back at that time, I am SO THANKFUL things didn’t work out the way I wanted to.
I’ve now lived in Arizona for 16 years and I’m completely in love with life.
I have evolved and grown so much.
I have seen so much, been so much, learned so much.
The opportunities I’ve had would have never happened for me in that small town in Connecticut.
So just trust where you are.
The detours, the road blocks and the redirection is all leading you to where you need to be.
