It’s amazing how much a year can change things. A year changes everything. So, it’s fitting that this morning I found this blog post that I wrote a year ago Wednesday for skirt! Magazine. It’s funny how so many of the things that I felt this time last year are still the same, just the circumstances are different…much different. So as I find myself still falling forward, I hope that you find yourself falling too…into something old, something new or maybe something that you never expected. And no matter what it is, I hope that you find what you’re looking for.
“I could not have known then that everybody, every person, has to leave, has to change like seasons; they have to or they die. The seasons remind me that I must keep changing.” -Donald Miller (Through Painted Deserts)
I tend to order the same thing at my favorite restaurants, and I hardly defer from my regular coffee order. I am by definition a creature of habit. Change in my life has never been a little thing, so at times I can be very resistant. But I have always known when I need to move on. I think sometimes, we get caught in the comfort of life and fail to see that we need to move past where we are. Since moving to Los Angeles three years ago, I have found an amazing community of people that fill my heart immensely-some more than others. Maybe it’s just the way that life is, but I have found myself moving in a much different direction than many people that I used to be so close to. I have found my time being filled with new projects and people that are very far from the people that I used to know. Sometimes, it makes my heart a little sad; it almost feels like we were never apart of each other’s lives. Where I am going is where I always needed to be, and maybe everyone won’t make the journey with me. However, I will never forget the ones that I met along the way because they made me who I am today. They helped me fall into the woman that I was always supposed to be, and I will never be the same.
