Ok friends… 4 months in California and I can FINALLY let go of ATL. Many of you weren’t aware that my hubby was STILL based in Atlanta for the past 3 months. Yep… I was holding down our NEW life here in LA while he closed our OLD life in Atlanta. We basically went out on faith and now hubby is permanently with us and everything worked out just fine. 🙂
And that’s what I want to talk about on this beautiful Sunday… FEAR kills dreams. It dawned on me yesterday when I decided to trade in my baby (Volvo) for a “slightly” bigger vehicle. I’ve had her since my days in Corporate America 7 years ago. A wonderful family car that even my boys grew to love. But you know what.. they are growing FAST and will out grow that 4 seater in a matter of 2 to 3 years. Should I be reluctant & keep her (I was going to drive it till the wheels fell off) or go with what’s inevitable down the line? Besides my new vehicle has some cool NEW gadgets i can play with. Fear vs. hope
Many of us want instant gratification and life doesn’t work that way. Things happen when they are suppose to happen. Your time is not HIS time. Patience is a virtue and will carry you through each baby step you take. Don’t be afraid to take risks… some may be big (like our move to LA) and some may be small. Either way… you have to step outside your box to see what’s out there.
I’ve been in Atlanta for over 20 years and I will always love my city… but sometimes you have to spread your wings and fly to other destinations. Sure I was nervous about leaving my clients/business, plucking the kids out of their environment… but my hopes were greater than my fears. I listened to the universe & my heart… and everything worked out just fine. Our family is complete and I’m ready to take LA by storm and start all over again.
