Hi guys! This is my first blog post on here, but not my last!
As most of you now know, in about 2.5 weeks I will be making the move to Florida, the one state that I always said I’d never move to. Funny how things work out isn’t it! This move is for an incredible job that I feel so blessed to have been offered, and while I am beyond excited to start my life somewhere new, I am also, naturally, terrified.
This whole process happened fairly quickly and out of the blue. The company I will be working for found and contacted me towards the end of May, and I proceeded to have two phone interviews with them before ultimately flying down for an all day interview in early June. And by all day, I mean from 8am-3:30pm. Yes it was a long day, but I am so glad that I went down for the interview. Who knows how long I would have waited for another opportunity like this to happen. By the end of June I was offered the job, and, well, now here I am attempting to pack, cancel everything here, get everything set up for my apartment there, all while working out to relieve stress and making sure my school work is completed on time. My days are packed, but I wouldn’t have it any other way!
This transition has been tough on me from the very beginning. Those who know me are well aware of the fact that I am a complete homebody. I enjoy where I live and the fact that my friends and parents are close by. However, this move is necessary for me. Not only do I need to leave because there is nothing for me in Buffalo related to my job, but I need this change to figure out what it is in life I need and want. I’m comfortable where I am, but now it’s time for me to be pushed outside my comfort zone. Planning and preparing for this move has already made me become more outgoing, which is the complete opposite of my usual quiet self. I’ve been telling everyone that this move will be good for me, and I think that by me telling them that, it is making me believe that statement is true.
I am beyond grateful and blessed for all the support, encouragement, excitement, and well wishes from everyone. Without those who have stood by my side when things started to go downhill, I’m not sure that I would be making this huge move. Those few individuals mean the whole world to me and I couldn’t have asked for more perfect and amazing people to share this experience with me! I love you all to the moon and back and know that you are always welcome to stay with me anytime!!
Sending love and encouragement your way!
