Much to the surprise of many (myself included) we did it. We moved from NY to Arizona, making the 40-hour trek by car to begin anew. It has been a whirlwind experience that has left me exhausted but strong of mind. Moving is a tough task! It can divide a marriage, unravel your routines, and cause even the most level headed person to lose his/her marbles. And sometimes I feel like I am just waiting for disaster to strike at any moment. But as we headed out for our third trip to Wally World, I watched my daughter twirling and running in the sun, her face covered with a mischievous smile. I remembered why we wanted to move here. I remembered that children are more resilient than we adults believe, and I remembered that life is about LIVING.
For the past nine years I have avoided making resolutions. Every day is a chance to get it right so rather than make promises that I may or may not keep, I have been making personal statements that remind me what I have learned over the last year. This year is one of the only times that I am sharing this, and while I don’t consider this much of a resolution, it is definitely something I will remind myself to do every day. My outlook on life has changed so much over the last year. I have come to a place of personal peace and I simply want to enjoy life. I want to reconnect with the things that bring me joy and I want to spend more time living!
