This move has been in the works for a year. All our friends and family have been prepared for our departure for some time. Last visits for a while have been made, send off dinners and parties enjoyed. Sadness and excitement have fueled me for weeks.
We sat in 3 hours of traffic. Three hours! Only to find out our flight had been delayed 2.5 hours. Luckily we called our ride to turn around and take us out to dinner. We had a leisurely dinner and headed back to the airport. There was still plenty of time to sit and think.
While looking at my cheap boots from DSW, I started to think about how I didn’t want to leave California anymore. What about my friends? Will they wait a year for me? What about my job? Will I be incredibly bored in Seattle? What if I get sad because of the weather?
It’s funny how change can strike fear in you. Whether you’re ready or not, life can offer up some wonderful changes. I just hope I’m ready to embrace them rather than fight them.
