Breakups suck ass.
Yes… I just said “suck ass” in the first line of my first official blog entry and it feels fantastic. But we all know that is a very true statement.
To be honest, it’s hard to believe it’s already been over 6 months since mine. As much as I wanted to look back and try to figure out exactly where things went wrong, how I could have stopped it from happening, or what I could have done differently… the end result is the same for us all. It’s over… that’s life, and I had to deal with it. For me, that moment created change in more ways than one. Not only was I flying solo once again but the entire direction I thought my life was going immediately vanished. At first it was completely shocking and overwhelming but it didn’t take me long to realize the beauty in this new life of mine- the possibilities were literally endless.
A few days later I booked a weeklong trip out to Southern California… somewhere I hadn’t been for years but that has always been so close to my heart. Sometimes you need to run away a little bit, leave behind your normal reality and expose yourself to everything you’ve been missing out on while staying in your comfort zone. I mean really… would you rather sit at home, looking like a hot mess crying over a lost relationship you can do nothing about… or cruise up the West Coast in a muscle car, windows down, singing along to the music while enjoying gorgeous ocean views with nothing to do but whatever you feel like doing at that moment?
The choice seemed pretty obvious to me.
Thus began the journey that lead me to where I have found myself today. And by “found myself”, I don’t mean where I ended up by accident. I mean the moment that jumpstarted an awesome journey of new adventures, self-reflection, some hilarious stories, creative ideas, cherished travels and memories I will never forget.
It’s about time we start getting caught up on things right?! 😉
