I’m Moving to Washington State!

I’m Moving to Washington State!

You read that right! I’m moving to Olympia, Washington at the very end of July. I’ve already told my family and my job and now I’m telling the rest of my people.

Mt. Rainier National Park

A lot of people have asked me why I chose Washington as the place I want to live. There are a lot of reasons. It’s a gorgeous state and one of my best friends lives there along with her husband and one of my cousins lives there as well. I’ve visited six times over four years and have loved it every time.

Probably the biggest reason, though, is the travel opportunities. There are just so many cool places to go in the Pacific Northwest. Seattle and Portland are fun to visit. There are multiple national and state parks; there’s the ocean. I could keep going. Also, I have wanted to move here for a very long time, and now I have no reasons not to follow this pull in my heart.

I have to say that I feel a lot of emotions about leaving. I’m excited to have this completely new experience and learn what I’m really made of, completely by myself. I’m also terrified that I’m going to fail, that I’m going to hate living there, that I’m going to be lonely. I’m stressed about getting all of my things and my cat there in one piece (not to mention my sanity.) I’m worried that I’m running head first into a mistake.

But at the end of the day, I know I’m going to be proud of myself for doing this. I am going to be able to look back at this time in my life and know that I didn’t miss out on anything. I took the chances that were important to me and I’ll own whatever comes as my own.

  1. Nothing ventured nothing gained! You will do great, you are a very strong young woman and Mom and Dad raised you to follow your heart, try new things, and to be YOURSELF! You can always move back if you are not as happy as you had thought you would be! Aunt Ruth wishes you all the luck in the world.
