Life Currently: Part II
CHANGE OF PLANS. HOLD THE PHONE. STOP EVERYTHING.
The past year has been a whirl-wind of a ride for our family. As stated in my blog post, “Life Currently” back in July, I announced my families anticipated move to Atlanta, Georgia. As you may know, my husband has been away working since then, while Elijah and I have spent the past 5 months in Austin, Texas, preparing for everything.
When I published the announcement, my husband, close friends, and family asked me why I took so long to do so. I often see myself as an “oversharer”, and I am completely fine with that. I put myself out there with my content with the pure intention of being real, and relating with other readers who have been or who are going through similar situations as I am. No one’s life is perfect - and as much as a gorgeous, happy IG feed will try to tell you otherwise, I promise that it is not . Everyone battles their own dilemmas, insecurities, and instability in life. And with that being said, this was one milestone I was not quite ready to share. Why, you ask?
Intuition. Although we made all the plans to get our family out there, MY GUT WAS TELLING ME OTHERWISE and I JUST DIDN’T SEE IT HAPPENING. A women’s intuition for life events and her future is EVERYTHING, and moving to Georgia was just not setting well in my head and heart.
And it was all for a reason…..
Long story short, by the grace of God, my husband was counter-offered, and was asked to take over the same position he moved to Georgia for, but back in Texas, for the Corpus Christi and Rio Grande Valley area. For those that have known me for years, you know my hometown and entire family lives in this area, so sharing this news with my parents and best friends was the best thing I have done all year. My husband will begin working in his new territory in January, while Elijah and I will finish up our town home lease in February, and will be making our way to Corpus Christi in March.
Everything works out for a reason, and my heart and mind feel so at peace, and happy with this transition. It is just so crazy how life turns out. I am returning to my original “home”, with the love and support of all the most important people in my life. This is the journey we are meant to be on, and I am so excited to see where it takes us.
