"Some people do not have to search, for they find their niche easily in life and rest there seemingly contented and resigned. At times, I envy them, but usually I do not understnad..and seldom do they understnad me. I am on of the searches. There are, I believe, millionsof us. We are not unhappy, but n neither are we completely content. We continue to explore life, hoping to uncover its ultimate secret. We continue to explore ourselves hoping to understand. We like to walk along the beach, we are drawn by the ocean, taken by its power and unceasing motion, its mystery and unspeakable beauty. We like forests, mountains, deserts, hiddern rivers, and lovely cities as well. Our sadness is as much a part of our lives as our laughter; to share our sadness with the ones we love is perhaps as great a joy as we know. Unless it is to share our laughter. We searchers are ambitious but only for life itself and anything beautiful it can provide. Most of all, we want to love and be loved, to live in a relationship that will not impede our wanderings and prevail our search. We do not want to prove ourselves to others or compete for love. This passage is for wanderers, dreamers, and lovers who dare to ask of life, everything which is good and beautiful." ~Found in the door of a deserted store in Colorado

Here I go...

It started as a road trip out west and ended up as a one way trip with no returning flight. 6 months ago I would have never guessed where I would be right now...moving to Jackson Hole, WY for a year! Crazy...I am beyond excited, nervous, sad, happy, a mixture of emotions...but most of all excited! I am looking forward to what lies ahead for me in this new chapter of my life and the many adventures to come. A door was opened for me and all I had to do was step through it...and I did!!! Thanks to the amazing support, encouragement, and love from my family and friends I am able to step out and into a new world with confidence! This is a trip that I have always thought and dreamed about but never really saw coming true for one reason or another. But once it was put into perspective and I realized that I could do it...I decided, without hesitation, that moving to Jackson is exactly what I wanted, needed, and could do! I love my family more than life itself and without them, I would not be who I am and this trip would not be possible...so for that I am forever thankful.

"Having the energy to pursue our passions will always come if that's our wish. Most of who we are, what we do, and where we are going relates to our attitude. Being tired, bored, scared, or unhappy are decisions, nothing more. Coming to grips with this reality has the potential for changing every aspect of what remains of our lives."

With all of that being said, I am going to continue to post messages on my blog along with pictures so I can keep everyone up on what I am doing. I hope you enjoy! Please feel free to comment or email me anytime. LOVE TO ALL :)
