Did you know that I’m from Seattle? I know I’ve talked about it before, but it’s been awhile. For those of you who know the area, I was born in Bellevue and then moved to Woodinville. My dad worked for UPS, so we transferred to CT and KY – but I came back for college and graduated from the University of Washington. My parents moved to Georgia, so then I came to Atlanta. And that’s where I am.
And there has hardly been a day that’s gone by that I haven’t wanted to go home. It sounds dramatic, but it’s true. It’s not that I haven’t been happy, or that I haven’t tried to make my life in Atlanta. I have. I’ve never forgotten where I’m from though.
About two years ago, my parents moved back to Seattle, and then three of my four brothers did. It took a lot for my parents to move back, and they really did it because of me – because I told them long ago that I would eventually be there. So many things happened that delayed the process, like getting my MBA, jobs and a boyfriend.
I think over the last year of my life there have been a lot of signals that it’s time to go home. I told you before that my job went down the toilet, and now I’m working as a freelancer. So I’m taking a leap . . . a big one . . . and I’m scared. At 35, it’s not as easy to make changes as it was at 25. There’s also the matter of my relationship as well. I love my boyfriend, but he’s staying behind for now.
That’s my big news! I’m so glad to have gotten it off of my chest. You’ll definitely hear more from me as I take this journey. What is the next big leap in your life? Anything exciting?
