I’ve been looking for a change for some time. I’ve made some changes here and there, but none of them have felt right. Or maybe they felt half-assed.
I’ve been through many challenges in life. I made it through cancer at the age of 32. Shortly thereafter, I lost my dad, job, and relationship over the course of 3 months. I moved to Boston at that point, thinking it was the best move for me. It wasn’t, and after another job loss, I was back in the DC area in less than 2 years.
Once I moved back, I knew something had to give. I couldn’t show up as the same person who left. I loved the comfort of being in a familiar setting, but I wanted different things. In the short time that had passed, I’d become stronger and more self-aware.
I searched for new things. Joined new groups. Focused on things I loved- hockey, workouts, exploring nutrition and fueling my body. Things changed, but I soon realized it wasn’t enough. I struggled. What next??
Over the last year, I changed course dramatically. I moved back home to PA. I bought a home. I reconnected with old friends. I’m able to spend more time with family. I have more money to travel and do the things I want to do.
I left PA after college with no plans to return. Who would've thought I'd be back? I don’t see it as the end of the road, however. It’s more of a stepping stone. It’s giving me time to refocus, recharge, and figure out what’s next. (And save a ton of money!)
It only felt right to change the focus of my blog and website a bit at this time, too. I want it to reflect what’s going on in my life. I'm finding that everyday is an adventure, the time I spend is more meaningful, and it feels like no matter what, I'm always moving in a forward direction.
I'll still be sharing how I maintain a healthy, balanced life, and I intend to continue to post recipes when I'm feeling creative. I'm working on an ebook full of healthy travel tips, amore other projects. But mostly, I want to share with you ways to live YOUR life the way YOU want, and to enjoy every moment of it along the way.
