It’s amazing how quickly your whole life can change, isn’t it? One minute you have a perfect idea of how everything is going to play out… the next, something as gentle as a breeze comes along and changes the direction of everything.
So, the family reunion that brought me to Knoxville went well. Really well. The entire family connected in a way I’m not sure it has in a long time. And in the middle of it all, I had something of an epiphany. A real eye opening moment. Suddenly, everything in life fell into perspective.
For so long, I’ve been on the run from this empty feeling—but I’ve always run in the wrong direction. As I sat at that reunion, I realized I had unknowingly been led in the right direction. Finally.
I was supposed to be heading back to TX tomorrow, but when I woke up this morning, I knew that wasn’t going to happen. I immediately got ready and went job hunting. My aunts brother does AC work, so I talked to him and he’s going to let me work with him for awhile. My cousin said I can rent out the extra space she has behind her house. And I couldn’t be more thrilled.
Just like that, I’ve dropped everything and started over. From the ground up. Honestly, I’ve never felt more at home or at peace. Or alive.
This is the start of a new book, from chapter one. A new journey.
Life is short though, and you only live once. Like and follow along to keep up with the journey!
