In many ways I feel like my life has been standing still, yet so much has been changing. For so long I wondered what my purpose and calling were. In the past year, I finally feel like I have been given a call and purpose.
I graduated from college with no real plan and no job lined up, and it was scary, a little over a year after I graduated from college I went to New York, on my own, and it was definitely was one of those growing experiences. It really helped me to grow, and that when I know something is right for me, I can’t let fear hold me back. If I had let fear get the best of me, I know I wouldn’t be who I am today.
I have known for years I am not a city girl. I may know how to navigate the city, but the fast paced lifestyle isn’t for me.
Over the course of the past couple of years, I have begun to see that who I am, the outdoorsy girl who loves the ocean, hiking and pretty much everything the Pacific Northwest has to offer, is OK, and who I am supposed to be. This part of the country is my home and where my roots are. While I love exploring and seeing new places, there is nothing like getting back home.
