The moving to Denver official countdown is on. Day -5 until the 12 hour epic road-trip begins. It is a bittersweet excitement for me. I am glad to be going back to Colorado, it is my home, but I have made some wonderful friends here in Phoenix and will miss them terribly. You know who you are. Know that when it is 115° in Phoenix and your melting, I may be putting on a hoodie because my arms are getting chilly, you are welcome to join me.
“Truly great friends are hard to find, difficult to leave and impossible to forget. “

As you may know or not know my husband and I have been living in the desert, Phoenix, for the past 5 years. We moved here from Colorado where we both grew up. My husband and I felt like we needed a change, sick of winter and being cold. But, the funny thing is the moment we left we began to realize how much Colorado felt like home. Sometimes it takes leaving something, to gain a new perspective on it. Well, after 5 years we are making the move back. What we have realized is life is short and there is no better time to following your heart than now. So, I found this quote appropriate for where we are at; taking hold of your dreams and making them reality.
Go confidently in the direction of your dreams.
Live the life you’ve imagined.
Henry David Thoreau

I love this quote. To me, it states there is never a reason to feel “stuck”, in a job, a relationship or even in your life. Making decisions from your heart can only get you to where you want. Changing your mind doesn’t mean you were wrong, it was a good decision at that moment, but now maybe it no longer serves you. So, simply make a new decision. Who knows, it could change your life into what you have always wanted it to be. Think how exciting it could be, it makes my skin tingle.
It’s Never too late to change your
mind if it is meant to be.
This life is yours. Take the power to choose what you want to do and do it well. Take the power to love what you want in life and love it honestly. Take the power to walk in the forest and be a part of nature. Take the power to control your own life. No one else can do it for you. Take the power to make your life happy.

This quote reminds me of how truly blessed we all are. Sometimes just shifting your perspective on the simple little things can make them wonderful. Hope everyone has a happy Friday!!! (Friday the 13th, none the less)
“In the right light, at the right time,
everything is extraordinary.”
